Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation.I will be honored throughout the world.”

This iconic verse can be directed either to the enemies of God’s people or to God’s people themselves as we’ll take a look at. The verse implies a stoppage of fighting, raging, striving, or operating out of human strength alone and relaxing as we watch the Lord fight on our behalf. 

God is essentially saying, “Lay down your arms and surrender. No more defensiveness or resistance to the plans I have…let ME be God.”

We’ll also refer to Exodus 14:10-14 and Isaiah 37:33-36 as we look at this concept of being or standing still.

If you’re experiencing resistance in your writing, you are not alone! You have an army of fellow Kingdom writers beside you and, most importantly, you have the God of the universe going before you to fight on your behalf!

Join Shelley Hitz and several authors from Christian Book Academy who will share case studies + tips they've learned along the way.

A few things you'll learn:

✅ How MaryAnn Ward combined her passion for art and writing into an unexpected book that wasn’t even on her radar…and it has already sold more than 100 copies.
