Battling Through The Trials

Day 1: Be Still and Know (Battling Through The Trials)

Scripture: Psalm 46:10 - "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."


In times of trouble, our natural reaction may be to become anxious, worried, or overwhelmed. But God calls us to be still and trust in Him. He is in control and will be exalted above all the struggles we face. Remember today that God is with you in the storm, and He is greater than any obstacle you face. Take time today to pause, reflect, and find peace in knowing that God is in control.

1. God is in Control: Despite the storms and struggles we face in life, God is always in control. He is sovereign over all the nations and the earth. In moments of trouble, remember that He has a plan for your life, and nothing happens without His knowledge or permission.

2. Be Still: In the midst of challenges, it's easy to become overwhelmed and try to take control of everything. But God calls us to be still and allow Him to work in our lives. When we are still, we can hear His voice more clearly and experience His presence more deeply.

3. Know God: In this verse, God invites us to "know" Him. This is an invitation to develop a deep and personal relationship with Him. Take time to seek Him through prayer, reading the Bible, and spending time in His presence. Get to know His character and promises, and allow that knowledge to anchor your soul during tough times.

4. Peace in God: God's presence brings peace. Even when the storms of life are raging around us, we can find peace in knowing that God is with us. His peace transcends understanding and circumstances. Trust in Him and let His peace guard your heart.

5. Prayer as a Source of Strength: In the devotional, there's a prayer that acknowledges God's control and seeks peace. Prayer is not just a way of asking God for help; it's also a way of acknowledging His sovereignty, expressing our trust in Him, and drawing strength from His presence. Use prayer as a way of communicating with God and receiving His peace and strength in tough times.

In summary, Day 1 of the devotional reminds us to find peace in knowing God is in control, be still, and seek a deeper relationship with Him. Remember that God is with you in the storm, and draw strength from prayer and His presence.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to trust in you even when life is difficult. Help me to be still and know that you are God. Give me peace and calm my heart, knowing that you are in control. In Jesus' name, Amen.
