The 4-word title is very awesome and intriguing! What do we understand by what they say?
I am meditating on these 4 words. BE STILL means STOP DOING AND BE STATIONARY, KEEP QUIET AND DON’T MOVE. Then the command does not stop there. It is joined by a conjunction AND ( from negative command to a positive) KNOW…. What does KNOW mean? KNOW means LEARN, REALIZE, ACKNOWLEDGE, REFLECT.
So, BE STILL AND KNOW….Stop doing whatever you are working on, be quiet, calm down and now learn, reflect, acknowledge and realize…….
A negative and then becomes a positive command. Can we apply this in our life? Do we need to heed this command?
In our hustle and bustle of life, we have never once stopped to think or to reflect on our lives. Our lives consist of WAKING UP, WORKING, EATING and SLEEPING. Is this LIVING? Is this LIFE? Or is there something more to Life?
Well, the command continues ….THAT I AM GOD! Perhaps in our busy daily schedule, we have forgotten the ALMIGHTY GOD. Have we? I am sure that this verse will wake us up: BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!
Perhaps, some of us do not believe in God. Still the command is warning us to take time to reflect on what we are doing and where we are heading.
I am not a preacher. Just meditate on the 4 words and see what WE have learnt and ought to know about our present life!
