God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. —Psalm 46:1
I delight in the inward knowledge that Jesus Christ, the Son of God and our coming Lord, will be sufficient for every situation which is yet to come to pass. We will never panic along with this present world system as long as we are fortified with our knowledge of who Jesus Christ really is. The Word of God is the foundation of our peace and rest. Even in these dangerous and dramatic hours:
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble… (Psalm 46:1).
Notice that this is the kingly strength and dominion of our Lord—not the United Nations!… “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us” (46:10-11). Fear not, little flock—it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
And the gates of hell cannot prevail against it!
Lord, help me to be still as I meet alone with You today. Grant me a very real sense of Your strong presence, of the refuge I have in You. Amen.
