“Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalms 46: 10, Amplified Bible)
God will be, must be exalted above all. He must be seen and worshipped, known as the one and only power and supreme over the earth and all that is in it. This right recognition of God is a prayer that does not strive and struggle to know God through human intelligence or actions.
The supremacy of good, of Life, of Love is found by being still and letting God be what He already and always is. It is that release of control, of worry, of doubt and fear, to acceptance. This is not about giving up and agreeing to live with challenges and troubles. It is about pausing for comfort, enlightenment, and that acknowledgment of God’s presence that is necessary if we are to truly feel and know the protection and affection of His loving law.
Let it be. Be still. Accept that God is over all and that His goodness is for you. By exalting His name; by letting Him be the One Mind and Life and Truth, we are released from the confusion and burden of being in charge. Recognize and understand that God, being All and in All, has your life, you, and the whole earth safely and perfectly in the palm of His loving hand.

My biggest challenge! Giving up CONTROL! Still working on this but it is hard to let go…
I’m still working on it, too, Patrick. It’s a tough one, but it’s so freeing when we do it!
