Oftentimes the most appropriate response in the midst of severe tribulation is to simply relax, be still, and remember who God is and his love and provision for his people. In Psalm 46, we are told to Be still and remember who God – know that I am God. We are told three times in this chapter that God is our refuge and also told three times to Selah, to contemplate and to meditate upon God as our provison and strength in the midst of trouble.
