Psalm 46:9He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Stop striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth.”
11 The Lord of armies is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold.
This call from God to “stop striving” seems so antithetical to the way we live our lives today. In our day we have replaced the one true God with the various Gods of entertainment, money, what we call success, sport, and every other excess of the human mind and body. From the beginning of the day our faces reflect the glow of whatever screen we watch rather than reflecting the glory of God. We have forgotten the very first words of the Ten Commandments; Exodus 20:3 “You shall have no other gods before Me. The image above from the Hubbel space telescope reminds me that there is far more in this universe than my pitiful preferences. When God commanded “BE STILL” (Perhaps more familiar translation NKJV Psalm 46:10) the “sons of Korah” (Descendants of Moses’ cousin) It was to encourage the Israelites to look to their God and not to the nations around them for their validation. Today, nothing presented as “normal” in most cinema or music reflect the truth of God as we understand it.
