Daily Bible Reading Reflections

What Are We Missing?

Today’s Bible reading is Psalm 46.


Hustle and achieve. One up and win. Outdo and shine. Brag and impress. Flaunt and attract. Stay busy and be fulfilled. Binge and enjoy. Scroll (and scroll, and scroll, and scroll) to fill every second of your time and occupy every ounce of your attention.

Psalm 46:10:

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

What are we missing out on if we endlessly hustle, one up, outdo, brag, flaunt, stay busy, binge, and scroll? In what deeper, more intimate ways would we come to know God if we slowed down, turned off, and tuned out? If we took God at his word…

Be still, and read Scripture.

Be still, and meditate.

Be still, and recite a hymn.

Be still, and pray.

Be still, and envision his throne.

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

What difference could Psalm 46:10 make in your life if you did what God has encouraged his people to do for the last 3,000 years?
