Be still, and know that I am God

 thanks
(Psa 46:10 NIV) “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth
 
The lives of some of The best saints are detailed in the  Bible,  Job, Samson, Joseph, King David, Esther, Ruth.. etc.. and how any one can say that  any  of these people now tended to have an easy life because of their faith in God is beyond me.. rather truly it can be said of each one of these persons as well.. “when I thought it can no longer get  any worse, it did..  and it really got a lot, lot worse”.. with no immediate solution general in sight.. these people came out of the long dark tunnel cause they kept their faith in God and their eyes on God.. and God’s deliverance was not automatic for any of them as well.

(Psa 56:1 KJV)  Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
 
(Psa 56:5 KJV)  Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
 
(Psa 56:6 KJV)  They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
 
(Psa 56:7 KJV)  Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
 
(Psa 56:8 KJV)  Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
 
(Psa 56:9 KJV)  When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
 
When I cry unto thee.. God will deal with my enemies..
 
(Psa 56:10 KJV)  In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
 
(Psa 56:11 KJV)  In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
 
(Psa 56:12 KJV)  Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
 
(Psa 56:13 KJV)  For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
 
(Psa 57:1 KJV)   Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
 
(Psa 57:2 KJV)  I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
 
(Psa 57:3 KJV)  He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

(Psa 57:4 KJV)  My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

(Psa 57:5 KJV)  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

(Psa 57:6 KJV)  They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

(Psa 57:7 KJV)  My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.

(Psa 57:8 KJV)  Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

(Psa 57:9 KJV)  I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

(Psa 57:10 KJV)  For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

(Psa 57:11 KJV)  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.

(John 16:33 KJV)  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

(1 Cor 15:57 KJV)  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

(1 Cor 15:58 KJV)  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
(1 John 5:4 KJV)  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

(Rev 15:2 KJV)  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3  And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

We have to be willing to trust God and surrender everything to Him daily too , and we can only do that through an intimate relationship with Him.  Only then can we be still and know that He is God.

You do really need to keep faith and eyes on God daily, not mere men.. even in Church!

(Psa 56:2 KJV)  Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

(Psa 56:3 KJV)  What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

(Psa 56:4 KJV)  In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

Our trust in God is based on His Word, right , his words in the Bible which we have to claim by faith, appropriate by faith personally for ourselves.
