“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalms 46:10).
Most of us have read this verse numerous times, but what does it mean . . . spiritually mean? Answering that question depends on the level of spiritual understanding the individual has that supplies the answer, and the responses can be immensely different.
At the rudimentary level, it could mean to cease moving your body from place to place, sit down, and say, “Yea, there’s a God, and no nation on earth equals Him.”
Spiritual growth may produce an answer that follows this train of thought:
Find a quiet place where you can be alone, sit in a comfortable position and stare into space. Tell yourself, “In spite of what is going on in my life, I know God can help me. He is more powerful than the “stuff” I’m going through, and He is right here in the room with me. In fact, He’s everywhere–in every nation!”
Spiritual understanding at one’s highest level of thinking, gives a more spiritual response, admonishing the person to:
Mentally work to expel from consciousness, every thought that does not align itself with God. Seek to remove the tiniest evasion of divine Love, recognizing that “stillness” has nothing to do with physical movement or human level thinking, but expresses only pure thoughts containing the substance of Spirit. Know that God is Life, Truth and Love, and because He is so, no evil, disease or death can penetrate or claim a minute space anywhere in your consciousness. God is supreme, possessing all power, all knowledge and all existence.
Acknowledge His exaltation in the minds of everyone He created, irrespective of race, color, creed or nationality. Each person has the “mind that was in Christ Jesus,” because he is made in the “image and likeness of God.” That likeness is never human, but divine, never evil, but good, and never material, but spiritual.
Reaching heaven—spiritual harmony, as well as spiritual earth—spiritual ideas coming from God, I can demonstrate that now! To exalt God, is an affirmation of man’s exaltation, because man is a likeness of God. This knowledge and understanding will bring about healing—a rising above the infirmities and iniquities trying to separate me from God.
The medicine of divine Mind heals, is not weak, is ever powerful and effective! Not believing it this. . . is the problem.
