“Among The Heathen” ( Psalm 46:10, KJV ) by Carley Evans

God says:

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Do you think God means you to stand quietly, listening? Does He mean for you to shut your mouth? Open your ears? Does He mean for you to meditate? Pray? Is it a stillness of the body? Or, is it a stillness of the spirit? Or both?

How do you know He is God? Does He tell you? Do you just know He is God by being still? Is there some revelation? Do you become aware of Him when you are quietly still?

Do you notice God says “I Am God.” He also says, “I will be exalted among the heathen.” And, He says: “I will be exalted in the earth.” How is God exalted “among the heathen?” How is God exalted, lifted up among unbelievers? How is He exalted in the earth?

When does this knowing of God occur? I think about Job in particular; he isn’t still or quiet when God permits Satan to attack him.  Rather than be still, Job protests; he wrestles; he argues; he questions. Eventually God says, “Be quiet. Who are you to question Me?” And Job shuts up; he repents in dust and ashes because now he knows God. No longer is it just a report about God; it is a personal encounter.

Once the encounter with God is personal, then God is exalted among the heathen for this is the point at which the heathen becomes believer.

  4. children of Israel says:

    Revelation 7 is speaking about the Israelites the twelve tribes of Israel, these are Jacob sons his bloodlines. (Psalm 77:15) *Malachi 3:6* (Exodus 3:14 and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.) No doubt to enter the kingdom of heaven, you must have a tribe, for the new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:12-13) *Ezekiel 48:31*
