He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
Finding peace and strength in our own being is a daunting task. Psalm 46:10, which says “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” This verse reminds us that God is in control and worthy of our trust and praise. It can be easy to get caught up in our own worries and concerns, but this verse encourages us to find stillness and seek the presence of God. When we quiet our hearts and minds, we can better sense His presence and know that He is at work in the world and in our lives. Taking a few moments to be still and know that God is with us can offer us peace and strength for whatever the day brings. This devotional encourages us to find rest and comfort in God’s presence, even in the midst of a chaotic and uncertain world.

It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:4-6). Seek to cultivate love, patience, and kindness in your relationships and let go of envy, pride, and selfishness.

- Personal growth and development: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). Trust in God’s plan for your life and seek to grow and develop in ways that align with His will.
