1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah Psalm 46:1-3
Sometimes when we go through we forget the Lord’s ability to give us peace while we wait or while we stand in the midst of trouble. We easily forget all of the things He has brought us through, but we also forget His ability to soothe us as we stand facing adversity. We tend to pick up the phone to call someone – we tend to look in other places for solace and comfort. But…God is our refuge! God is there willing and ready for us to retreat in Him! He is our strength and an ever present Help in trouble! He is always there! He will NEVER leave us! He will be there before the trouble, in the midst of the trouble and beyond the trouble! We should not feel that He will only show up to rescue us out of trouble! He is that 4th person in the Lion’s Den! He is dead in the midst of the trouble with us!
SO…..we will NOT fear even though everything around us feels as if the earth will give way and swallow us up! No matter how tumultuous our circumstances – He is there and He will be our refuge! Stop running to everyone and every thing – God is with you in your trouble – He is your refuge and Present Help! Retreat in Him!
