God is our refuge and strength…

Standard

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea…

Psalm 46 was the first passage of scripture I leaned into when this whole social distancing thing began in March. The psalmist is “in trouble” but “will not fear” though things are coming apart around him. He has peace because “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”.

God is near to you and me brothers and sisters, not far off. 

Heavenly Father make yourself known to us today. Calm our spirits, give us peace that passes understanding. We place ourselves in your hands as we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
