I really liked this song from the very first time I heard it. The worship team at my church sang it for a season, including during the time when Robert was sick.
I can remember standing with arms raised, weeping as I sang these words. I would listen to this song in the wee hours of the morning during Robert’s illness and after his death too.
This song comes partly from Psalm 46:10, and one day – several years ago now – I was in a gift shop and saw a small flat stone that said “Be Still” on the front and “Psalm 46:10” on the back. I bought that stone and carried it in my pocket for a few years. Any time I would become fearful over any situation, I would put my hand over that stone in my pocket (sometimes take it out and hold it), take a deep breath, and recite, “Be still and know that I am God.” Doing so NEVER failed to bring peace to my soul.
Do you need to “Be Still” today and feel the peace of God flood over you? Take a minute and do so as you listen to this song. It’s by Hillsong, but I love this rendition by Koama Chende.
