Be still and know that I am God!

My cup runneth over! A cup runs over when it cannot hold all that is being poured into it. The emphasis of Psalm 23 is the Good Shepherd’sloving care for His sheep. The Lord not only gives His people what they need (Psalm 23:1–2), but He supplies abundance in the midst of difficult times (verse 5). This abundance is not limited to material blessings, but includes the Holy Spirit’s outpouring upon all who ask (Luke 11:13; Acts 2:1–4).

Sometimes the well dries up before God fills it again. Sometimes the waters overwhelm us before they part before us. If you’re in over your head, out of options, and can’t see a way through, do not fret! Instead, remember what you know about God. He’s the master of the miraculous breakthrough. Do not fixate on your problem, fix your eyes on the One who promised never to leave you or forsake you. Do not waste precious energy on things you cannot control. Letting go and letting God is good for your soul. Jesus said that His yoke is easy and His burden, light. Have you found your grace-space yet? That place where God’s provision flows and His life within you grows? Jesus is working even now. He will make Himself known to you in this place. Don’t doubt it for a second. May faith arise! God bless you! Susie

Psalm 46:10-11 (NLT) ~ “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.
