Q: Many times as a answers to my prayers i get a answer as be still and know I’m god. What actually mean be still how God want us to be still? Kindly guide me.
That response you are getting to your prayers comes straight from the Bible in 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.” The meaning of this phrase “be still” in the bible literally means to stop striving, to let go, or to surrender.
So many times in our prayers we are desperately searching for answers to life’s great problems. What this verse reminds us is that when we let go and surrender totally to God’s will for our lives we will find that he is trustworthy, he is good, and he is faithful. Psalm 46:10 is often quoted by believers, but to understand this I think we need to look back to the beginning of the chapter in verse 1 which says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear…” The writer is reminding us that God can handle our burdens and our requests that we bring to him in prayer and we are to surrender those into his power. This does not mean that life will always be easy or work out exactly like we think it should, but it does mean that God will walk with us through these times. We can let go and totally surrender to God’s plan knowing that no matter what comes our way He is our refuge.
