Psalm 46:10a

July 17, 2007

“Be still and know that I am G-d”

“Be raphiah and yadav that I am G-d.”

“Be still and healed so that you might understand and comprehend with every aspect of your being that I am G-d”

Can we know who G-d is without being “healed”? The healthy don’t need a doctor, the strong don’t need a comforter. The self-sufficient don’t recognize a need for G-d.

Through our weakness He is made manifest and glorious. Why? I venture a guess that it is precisely because He knows what we need to be made whole and will restore us so we can stand again, maybe with a pain in our hip, and follow the One who gave us the blessing.

Be healed… then you’ll know.
