Good morning, dear friend! And welcome to my inaugural His Encouragement post. His Encouragement is the brainchild of friends and amazing bloggers: Trisha of Joy of Reading and Nicole of The Christian Fiction Girl.
Lets be honest, the middle of the week can be a challenge. So every Thursday, a group of us bloggers will be sharing a new Bible verse and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
Trisha and Nicole decided on calling this series “His Encouragement” because our real source of peace, strength, and security can only come from Jesus Christ. He, and He alone, is our constant! We pray and hope that these Thursday posts become a real encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!
Today’s Thursday Encouragement
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” — Psalm 46:10, ESV
The average modern life is filled with hectic activity, busy schedules, stressful situations. It seems society has trained us to need to be constantly doing something or we feel useless and under-productive. We run ourselves ragged trying to keep up a pace that is near impossible to manage. I am guilty of this and perhaps you are too. I long for a slower paced life, a quieter life, one with less outside obligations so I can focus more on my relationship with the Lord and my family.
That is why this verse means a lot to me. I have it posted at my desk at work so I can be reminded of its wisdom whenever I start to feel overwhelmed. “Be still and know that I am God…” No matter what challenging situation you may be facing today or this week, take a moment to just pause. Pause, be still, and remember that God is God, the Almighty, the Creator of the entire universe.
And, here is the real kicker, this most amazing and powerful God loves you, far more deeply than any love we can truly comprehend on earth. He really does cares about you and what you are going through! Nothing you are facing is too big or too small for Him.
So be still, take a deep breath, praise the Lord for His everlasting love, and ask for His peace to enter your heart today. He will help you through.
Now it is your turn! What Bible verse is getting you through your day today?

Me, too. I had to remind myself to be still this morning.
