Be still and know that I am God.

Be still, my child, and know that I am God. I am within you, your life, your intelligence, the very breath of your being. My protecting mantle of love infolds you, and you need have no fear, for I am your eternal and everlasting refuge.
If the flood waters of fear and doubt sweep over your being and you cannot seem to gain a foothold or keep afloat, remember that in the midst of you is an ark of healing silence. Stop struggling, resisting, and fighting; surrender to the stillness of this inner sanctuary. The flood waters will recede, and the dry land (your good) will appear.
In every situation be relaxed and poised in mind and body. Be still and know that I am God. I, within you, am the God with whom all things are possible. I, within you, am the same Spirit that resurrected Jesus. No matter what your needs may be, I am what you seek.
Be still, and know that I am God.—Psalm 46:10
