Be Still...

I picked this Scripture scroll up at a place called Sozo Cafe when I was in Vietnam a few years ago. It hangs over our bed as a reminder, (particularly for me, one who likes to think she's in control)...
While living through the heartache of Hurricane Katrina, the song "Still" became a means of singing the truth of Psalm 46 to my soul. Today I am praying this Scripture over the precious people of Japan... May the Sovereign I Am bring spiritual and physical healing to their land...

46:1 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
