Psalm 46:10 says; "Be still and know that I am God." This message reflects on those words & encourages us to keep our life simple. As people we can try to be God, we like to be in control or at least think we're in control. Then we end up making life more complicated than is has to be. This message encourages us to simply chill out & let God be God, to let him sit in the driving seat of our lives & trust him to take the wheel.
Most experts believe Psalms 42 & 43 were originally one. This message assumes this. The song is one which opens & closes with hungering after God, but is by no means written from an easy place. Its words teach us much about the life of faith & devotion towards God. They express a desperate desire for God in the midst of struggling through sorrow, mockery, depression, trail, oppression, hurt & turmoil. The writer also feels forgotten & rejected by God. Yet none of these inward & outward struggles are given the last word. Faith & truth keep fighting back & a chorus of hope resounds above everything. None of the negative things rob him of his hunger for more of God.
