Cover your Mouth and Let God be God

He says, “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

Can’t I just stop for a while, stop of my whining, stop of my complaining, stop of my asking, stop of my hermeneutics, stop of thinking what would the verse mean to me, stop of thinking how to apply the verse I just read.

Yes I want to quiet my soul, heart and mind. I want to cover my mouth and set my sights on Him. I want to let Him take His rightful place.

“BE STILL OH MY SOUL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD”

I’ll be quiet oh God, glorify Yourself, take Your rightful place in my life.

Enthrone yourself in my life.

Be the Lord and King over our needs, wants and desires.

Be the Lord and King over our fears, struggles and problems.

Be the Lord and King over our body, over our thoughts, over our hearts and over our mouth.

Be the Lord and King over my husband and children.

Be the Lord and King over my family (parents, sister, nephew, brother-in-law, grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, cousins and relatives)

Be the Lord and King over my husband’s work.

Be the Lord and King over our finances.

Be the Lord and King over our dreams, plans, goals and visions.

Be the Lord and King over our sickness.

Be the Lord and King over the things we eat.

Be the Lord and King over our daily activities.

Be the Lord and King over our conversation.

Be the Lord and King over our pains and sorrows.

Be the Lord and King over the things we browse on the internet and over my blog.

Magnify Yourself.

Exalt Yourself.

Hollowed be Your Name over our life.

Be God of God over our life.

Amen!

  1. Wow….this was a perfectly timed word. Last week on a mission trip in Kentucky we sat with an environmentalist and asked him what the best thing we could as Christians do for the earth…his reply, “take a sabbath.” This post confirms so much of why he said that…Be still…
    thank you for sharing this…

  2. Hi there – wow, so beautifully written and so heartfelt. Its the call of my heart too, to be still before the Lord. Great post and thank you for linking it up. Look forward to seeing you there next week 🙂
    God bless
