One sure thing

The one sure thing “Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth”

Confidence in the threat of chaos.  We don’t have to fear the threat of chaos when God is our refuge, our protector, our strength.

As Dr. Craige says, “Because God controls both history and nature, the chaotic threat which both may offer to human existence may be faced fearlessly.  The very worst manifestation of chaos is merely a threat, for the Creator has mastered chaos.”  346

“Relax and know that I am God” is Craige’s translation of verse 10
