When our Lord says, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10), what does He mean? God’s Word promises that in whatever kind of storm we find ourselves in, Jesus always comes to us. 

In Be Still and Know, unpack the promises found in Psalm 46 that are fulfilled in Christ. The first session looks at Psalm 46 in detail and examines storms of life. Then, in the following seven sessions, study narratives from the Gospels as Jesus meets various women who are experiencing their own storms and explore the perspective of each woman as He provides refuge, strength, help, and hope. Looking to the biblical and cultural contexts will allow you to better grasp the depth of Christ’s care, purpose, and attention to every need. In the midst of today’s storms, may God reveal His refuge for us in Christ, the one who has overcome the world.

Workbooks and videos are sold separately. For a group study, each participant needs a workbook, but videos only need to be purchased once. Videos are available for purchase on Vimeo

Grace-filled & Relatable

I did this study with my women's Bible study group, and it was fantastic! The women loved Deb's grace-filled study and appreciated how relatable she is. Many of them told me afterwards how it was just the right study at just the right time in their lives.

Exactly what we needed in this time

I led a group of ladies through this study in January and February of 2022 and the content covered in this study was exactly what we needed! I praise God for using Deb and her words to bless us and point us to Christ, our refuge in the storm!

A Must Read!

If you liked Joy: A Study of Philippians, you will love Be Still and Know. This is by far Deb’s best Bible study yet. Her grace-filled approach to Psalm 46 helps readers engage in Biblical and real life examples of walking with your Savior through life’s storms. Gripping the quiet places of your heart, you’ll study Psalm 46 in a compelling, convicting, and Christ-centered way. Comforting words of hope are found throughout the pages of this study. It’s a must read!

A great reflection through scripture and story to tackle the storm of life

Deb Burma has done a beautiful job of weaving together scripture, story and reflection through Psalm 46 and the backdrop of life. In the many storms that life gives us, Deb reminds us that we are to be still and know that God is faithful and true.

A Beautiful Bible Study reminding us to Be Still for He is God

What a great reminder this book is to Be Still & Know each day! Deb Burma uses Gospel stories of women along with relatable personal stories and stories of friends that show the promises of Psalm 46. The forty days of study are grouped into eight sessions covering “storms” of sin, sickness, shame, scurry, sadness, self, and sorrow. As I read and study, I find myself connecting in some way to all of these situations. Deb has helped me to remind myself each day “I can be still because I know that He is God.” This book is a blessing.

Karen Sue

This beautiful new book “Be Still & Know-A Study of Rest & Refuge” by Deb Burma; a perfect Bible study in these crazy times. God stands-“a bastion of strength towering over the seething chaos.” What a great reminder and wonderful image to refresh and comfort us. Based on Psalm 46, this Bible study also examines accounts of women in the Bible addressing storms of sickness, shame, scurry, sadness, sorrow, and more. Deb incorporates words from Biblical experts for a deeper understanding of the culture and meaning of the texts. The personal stories which she shares from her life and also from friends sometimes brought a tear to my eye and sometimes made me laugh out loud. A video series for this book is also available.

Timely, Versatile, and Engaging Study Based on Psalm 46

Deb Burma tackles real life topics in an honest way - all within the context of a Savior who meets us in the middle of wherever we are - storms or calm. If storms, she points to the One who can calm the storm or calm the child IN the storm. You will find this study very versatile, with prompts for discussion in group settings and reflection for personal study. You will find ways to incorporate visual faith practices if that is your style. There are supplemental videos available too! If you are ready for some soul-tending R & R (rest and refuge), I highly recommend starting here.

A Blessed Gift in the Storms of Life

This study reaches you where you are in life, be it little problems or big storms. Deb walks you through the great comfort God provides and gives you real life skills for resting in Him. Order one your yourself and more for special family and friends - it will be a blessing!


Not only is Deb's newest study beautifully designed and beautifully written, but most importantly, it points us to our Beautiful Savior, who invites us to "be still" in His presence. Our God who fully knows us and fully loves us is present in the storms of our life. Sometimes He commands the storm to cease, and other times He allows the storms to rage, but no matter what He is present with us in the storm. He is our Lifeguard who walks on water!

A timely blessing from Deb Burma!

What a gift to soak in this study of Psalm 46 and the concept of soul stillness and confidence in our Lord as we begin to regain a sense of normalcy and heal from a global pandemic. Deb brings some fresh perspective, great study tips, memory techniques, and does a wonderful weaving of REST focus within multiple scriptural accounts of the storms of various women just like you and me. This book spoke to the heart of my new college graduate, as well as mine, a seasoned well-watered veteran of the Word. Through her honest and conversational style, Deb created space for generational sharing and discussion and deep soul searching. Readers will sense her genuine concern for their growth, recognize her love of Truth, and notice Christ at the center.
