Be Still (Psalm 46:8-11)Bo Grace, May 6, 2018
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We are not created to BE STILL all the time, but there are times we need to BE STILL – especially with God. It is all about focus – and sometimes we get out of focus because we cannot BE STILL with God. When we lose our focus, all kinds of bad things can happen – we lose our vision, we lose our mission, we lose hope – on and on the spiral, can go.
We cannot be sure who wrote Psalm 46, but we do know that every word was given by God who is the ultimate author of all Scripture. The inspiration of the song seems to be a great victory when the Assyrians surrounded Jerusalem – who was in a hopeless situation until God intervened and miraculously defeated the enemy.
It is important to focus on some things in the stillness. This passage gives us 3 things to focus on in our stillness.

8Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. 9He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. 10Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. (KJV)
