Be Still and Know

May 21, 2016

 

From: A Mighty Thunderous Roar {Article}

All will tremble at the roar of the Lion of Judah (Amos 3:8). To those who contend with the Lord, His roar will show His wrath (Prov 19:12, 20:2). They will tremble in terror. But to those who belong to the Lord it will be protection. They will tremble in awe and respect gathered like protected children around Him.

 

God is our refuge and strength
An ever present help in times of trouble   –
Ps 46:1
This is the reason we will not fear. –
Ps 46:2

Tho the nations rage  –Ps 46:6 Ps 2:1
Tho the oceans rise and mountains quake –
Ps 46:3
Be still and know –
Ps 46:10
The Lord in the midst of His children
Can not be moved. –
Ps 46:5

The Lord of Hosts –Ps 46:7
Strong and mighty He roars –
Ps 24:8
A roar of terror
To those who strive against the King –
Ps 46:6
But to those who know His name
A mighty Roar of protection. –Joel 3:16

Lift up your heads and see
The King of Glory –Ps 24:10
From the secret place of thunder  Ps 81:7
The Lion of Judah ROARS! 

Joel 3:16 AMPC … The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel.

Psalm 46:10-11 AMPC … 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! 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

From NetBible Ps 46:10

  • Be still and know = cease/stop striving and recognize
    • * To the nations who rage against God and His people, this is a rebuke to stop fighting/ striving against the Sovereign Lord
    • * To God’s children this is a call to trust and rest secure in the Sovereign Lord’s protection
  • exalted means recognized as Sovereign King => The Lord of Hosts, King of Glory(Ps 24:10) who fights and delivers on behalf of His children(Ps 46:11)

Beside Still Waters – KNOW!

June 7, 2014

Psalm 23:1-3 AMP … THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self);

Revelation 7:17 AMP … For the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to the springs of the waters of life{living waters}; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

Isaiah 48:17-18 NIV …This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. 18 If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Peace like a river flows when you follow His lead. 

I was thinking and praying the above scriptures for a friend when the Lord encouraged me with the following song – maybe it will encourage you too!

Beside Still Waters – KNOW!

Follow the Lamb wherever He goes
With all your heart
Be still and know
Beside still waters He will lead
There His peace like a river it flows
There His peace forever it flows.

Taste and see the Lord He is good
Beside still waters
Be still and know.

 

May the Good Shepherd who is also the Lamb, continue to lead you beside still waters where every tear is wiped away. There, taste and SEE that the Lord is good! May you experience the peace of the Lord in a fresh new way TODAY!

.

Psalm 46:10-11 AMP
10 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!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Psalm 34:7-10 AMP
7 The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe] and each of them He delivers.
8 O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.
9 O fear the Lord, you His saints [revere and worship Him]! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship Him with godly fear.

Word Study

From NetBible Isa 26:3

  • keep[05341]= guard with fidelity, watch over, protect
  • perfect peace[07965] = complete peace, safety
    with God especially in covenant relationship – entering into a relationship of wholeness/ unity
  • steadfast[05564]= to lean,lay, rest upon, to stand fast
  • trust[0982] = to be confident, secure, sure
    to hide for refuge

From NetBible Ps 17:8

  • Keep/protect me as the apple of Your eye
    *From Zech 2:8

    • the apple (pupil) of the eye[0892] = gate
      The pupil is one of the most vulnerable and valuable parts of the body, so for Judah to be considered the “pupil” of the Lord’s eye is to raise her value to an incalculable price (cf. NLT “my most precious possession”).

From NetBible Song 1:15, 5:12, 4:1

  • eyes like doves
    * The comparison has to do with gentleness and purity, as well as longing and simplicity

    * like doves[03123]
    (apparently from the warmth of their mating – like the warmth/effervesce from wine)* this may be a comparison of sense, usually suggesting that the dove is a symbol for purity and that the eyes of a person are the windows of their soul or character, that is, the bride has a pure character as can be seen through her eyes.

From NetBible Mt 6:22
If you eye is single

  • single[573]= sound, whole, clear, pure, true

your whole body will be full of light.

  • full of light[5460] = of a bright character, lustrous
    *full of truth and its knowledge, together with the spiritual purity associated with it

From NetBible Ps 123:1

To You I lift up my eyes

  • lift up[05375] = marry, desire, long for

From NetBible Ps 86:11

give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.

  • undivided heart[03161] = heart joined, united, married
    to fear the Lord’s name
  • fear[03372] = to stand in awe of, reverence, honour, respect

Be Still There is a Healer

June 8, 2011

“Be still there is a healer
His love is deeper than the sea
His mercy is unfailing”

Great is His faithfulness!


Lamentations 3:21-23
This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
22 Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Psalm 46:10-11 … Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Psalm 103:11 … For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great are His mercy and loving-kindness toward those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him.

Unfolding Rose

June 8, 2010

🙂

This really encouraged me!!!!! … From Almond Blossoms at the Door

Aaron’s rod, blossoms and almonds revealed
Waiting expectantly at the door
Kept thru the night before the tent of testimony
Until on the wings of dawn
Blossoms and almonds unfold
Revealed
Full of life
Full of light
In the Son.

Dead Branch
A branch may appear dead while waiting ‘at the door’ thru the long dark
night.

Take heart! For it’s at the door, laying still thru the night
That the branch is sustained by My hand,
Refreshed and renewed with the dew of My presence.
Joy is coming in the morning. With the rising Sun of Righteousness,
My servants blossom, full of light and life.
My dew sparkling like diamonds,
Still fresh appears at dawn.

Take heart!
The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. -Rom 13:12

My root is spread out to the waters, and dew lies all night on my branch. My glory is ever new with me, and my bow is renewed in my hand. -Job 29:19-20

Mark 5
35While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of
Jairus, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why
bother the teacher any more?”
36Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, “Don’t be
afraid; just believe.” …

38When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. 39He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” …

41He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means,”Little girl, I say to you, ARISE!” ). 42Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.

The stick that appears dead — is not dead at all
It’s in a state of sleep
A state of rest at the feet of the Kinsmen Redeemer -Ruth 3:8
Laying still before the door.

“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” -Ps 46:10

In stillness the dew forms during the night.

“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength” … -Isa 30:15

The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. -Isa 32:17

Be still and wait
Wait for the coming King
Wait in quietness and trust
For His words

Little one{at rest under My wing}
ARISE!

****

The words that cause ‘My Rose’ to be covered with dew and unfold during the night –>

Be still and KNOW that I am God!

***

Psalm 132:17    There I will make the horn of David bud; I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.

Psalms 89:15-17    How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance. 16In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted. 17For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.

Be Still

Romans 5 NKJV
Faith Triumphs in Trouble

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 New Living Translation
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
