In Psalm 46, when we hear the exhortation: “Be still, and know that I am God,” we shouldn’t be thinking in terms of taking a break from a busy day. No, outside the walls of the kingdom, God Himself is reducing the world to ruin. His voice is melting the earth, breaking apart chariots and armies. Our comfort and joy at being in God’s presence depends on understanding how dangerous it is outside of God’s fortress. Let our praise sound like the praise of those who have been saved from desolation! As we come to worship today, let this truth inform our hearts: though the earth give way and the mountains fall, we are safe inside the glad city of God.
