This is one of the most popular verses in the Bible and it’s commonly interpreted as an encouragement to take some quiet time with God.
But it’s actually a battle cry!
The writer of Psalms 46 was likely living in a time of war. Attacks were coming from all sides and it’s as good a time as any to take up your sword and figure out a way to win. But God doesn’t want us to try and figure out how to win. He breaks the bow. He shatters the spear. He burns the shields with fire. God wants us to be still and be confident that He is who He says He is.
You don’t have invading armies at your door, but you might have an impossible deadline to hit or a traffic jam that’s going to make you late for an important meeting.
The next time you take a sip of coffee or you’re filling up your calendar for the rest of the week, just remember that you don’t have to figure it all out on your own. Be still. God is God.
