What Does 'Be Still and Know That I am God' Mean in Psalms 46:10? “Be still and know that I am God,” the first half of Psalms 46:10, is a popular verse used to encourage believers to be still and silent before the Lord. This interpretation promotes a healthy rest in the presence of the Lord.
 
I have always been a Martha person. Always busy, Always Searching for ways to make a difference. A lot of times I would get very tired but never stopped trying to make a difference in the lives of others in Jesus Name.
 
My husband and I were youth leaders at our church for 8 years. It was not unusual for us to have 30 or more kids at Sunday night fellowship. If you can imagine that many 12 to 17 year olds. To say the least they were very busy all the time. 
 
We began our evening with a devotion. It was not always easy to put kids of this age in a controlled environment for a thirty minute bible study.
 
There was one young man who came every week and would lay in the floor during our study time. He never moved. Eyes were closed and kids were all over him. I would watch him and think we were not reaching him. 
 
At the end of our study my husband would reflect back on the readings for the week and ask the kids questions. And every week this young man would sit up at the end and was able to answer every question.
 
Everytime I get busy and frustrated God reminds me of this Young Man. And I need to follow his example and stop and be still and listen.
