Refuge and Strength

31 08 2012

God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up, and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble. There is a river of joy flowing through the City of our God – the sacred home of the God above all gods. God himself is living in that City; therefore it stands unmoved despite the turmoil everywhere. He will not delay His help.  Psalm 46:1-5

I am so thankful for the refuge, a place of safety and protection that God provides. The world offers so much turmoil on so many levels, physically and spiritually. Watching the news of the day offers so much discouragement. But we are thankful for the Good News of Jesus Christ. He is our Savoir. We are thankful that we can look our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ to provide a place of refuge for us. This is a place where we are safe from confusion and turmoil. This is a place where we can receive His strength. With His strength we can have the power to move forward in our walk with Him. We thank God for His place of refuge and strength in Him.

God is our safe place and our strength. He is always our help when we are in trouble. So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken and the mountains fall into the center of the sea, and even if its waters go wild with storm and the mountains shake with its action. There is a river whose waters make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High lives. God is in the center of her. She will not be moved. God will help her when the morning comes. Psalm 46:1-5
