Our verse today tells us we can know God as God and to follow Him. That word is an "experiential" kind of knowing...meaning we can experience Him as God. The 'be still' and 'know' are connected (please don't ask me to explain!)...you can't do one without the other. When our focus is on surrendering our control ('going limp' as one commentator put it), then we can experience who God is and what He says. When our focus is on what we are feeling, it will lead us down the wrong path. It led Eve down the wrong path when she felt like she needed more than God provided.
