Devotional First Sunday of Lent

Scripture Reading: Psalm 46:10 (ESV)

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

As we gather on this First Sunday of Lent, the words of Psalm 46:10 invite us into a sacred pause—a moment of stillness to recognize the divine presence of God.


In the hustle and bustle of life, finding stillness can be challenging. Yet, the psalmist encourages us to cease our striving, quiet our hearts, and be fully present with God. It is in the quietude of the soul that we discover the depth of the Almighty’s nature. In the stillness, we encounter God’s majesty, sovereignty, and unfailing love.

Consider the noise that surrounds you, both externally and internally. Are there distractions that hinder your awareness of God’s presence? This Lenten season, make intentional space for stillness. It is in the quiet moments that God often speaks, revealing Himself in the gentle whispers of the heart.


Heavenly Father, in the midst of our busy lives, we heed the call to be still before you. We acknowledge that you are God—the Alpha and Omega, the Creator of heaven and earth. In the hush of this sacred moment, we desire to know you more deeply.

Quiet the clamor within us, Lord. Help us release the burdens that weigh heavy on our hearts and minds. May the silence usher in your peace, your wisdom, and your reassuring presence. In the stillness, may we encounter the profound truth that you are God, and in you, we find our refuge and strength.

As we embark on this Lenten journey, grant us the grace to cultivate moments of quiet reflection, drawing nearer to you. May the knowledge of your divine nature transform our lives and inspire us to live with purpose and love.

In the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, we pray. Amen.
