“Be still and know that I am God,” He speaks to my heart. “It is only when you reach this tranquil inner place that my deep work can be done in you. It is only in this stillness with me that your mind and spirit will be transformed and renewed. If you live in me, quietness, assurance, and strength will revive.
“You have not understood that you would have not made it without me. Your cares would have destroyed you without spending time in my renewing presence. It is not in what I speak to you, but it is in just being with me that you find perfect peace. In my presence you don’t have to figure anything out. Your mind does not have to reason. Your mind cannot understand the healing powers of my presence. So just be still and know that I am God, and peace is assured.
This assurance springs from deep faith in my promise and power to take care of all that concerns your heart. Find this assurance. Seek it, and once you discover it, hold on to it, and never let anything cause you to sacrifice it. Take rest in me always, and live in my peace.”
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3).
