Be still

Psalm 46:10

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Whether the sun shines

Or it rains

Or it snows 

Even when the storms rage

Or the waters rise

Know that I am God

Whether there is plenty

Or little

Or just enough

Even when there is none

Know that I am God

Whether kings rise

Or fall

Even if they convene and make plans

When systems are changed

Know that I am God

Psalm 2:1-3

Why do the nations conspire
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

Whether kings pass away

And their death is mourned

When new king takes over

Nothing escapes my notice

I am God

I will be exalted among the nations

When kings rise or fall

Be it a Pharaoh

Or a Nebuchadnezzar

just as a flower blossoms and then quickly withers

Such is the life of a man

So be still and know that I am God

I will be exalted among the nations

I will be exalted in the earth

Selah
