“Jesus Christ Is Every Man’s Contemporary 耶穌基督與每一個人都同代同期“（Psalm 詩篇 46:10-11）
He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’ The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
If God for the time being has placed us in the tumult, we can still know Him but He is known best in the silence. Inward assurance comes out of the stillness. Today stillness is even more badly needed and hard to find. Christ is every man’s contemporary. His presence and His power are offered to us in this time of mad activity and mechanical noises provided that we get still enough to hear His voice and believe and heed what we hear. We must be still to know! In that awesome Presence we are simply men and women. Artificial distinctions among people fade away. We stand frightened and undone and fugitive from the terror of the broken law, desperately in need of a Saviour!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, in recognition of your glory and greatness, all argument and opposition should stop. We should simply be still and surrender as seeing that ‘God is God’ may well be sufficient to still all our objection and opposition against your divine sovereignty. Thank you for your assurance through Jesus Christ that we are safe in your hands. Help us to see each day what you have done, acknowledge you as the Lord Almighty and exalt you among others. Amen.
