The Bible instructs us to "Stop striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth." Many beneficial physiological reactions occur in our minds and bodies when we become still, cease, stop striving/fighting. Stillness moves us into a spiritual realm where we can experience and express God's love.
Knowing moves us into thanks giving and praise. Knowing involves closeness. When we intimately know Him, we will understand the things that He reveals to us, that we may believe and trust Him, obey Him, turn to Him, and love Him with all of our heart, soul and mind.
