The first words of today’s psalm announce its overall theme: God is our refuge, – our fortress and shelter. God is also our strength, our helper, – the one who deals with the perils surrounding us. And because God is our refuge and help, we have nothing to fear, even if nature throws its worst tantrums at us.
True faith is always tested by the storms and earthquakes in one’s life. Where can I find safety and security, you may ask? Psalm 46 gives us the answer:
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way. . ..”
Today ask yourself the question, in what ways has God been your refuge and strength? There is a certain and trustworthy basis for our faith—the God who made us and everything in our world. In all circumstances, no matter how terrible or frightening, our unchanging God is our refuge and strength.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. — Psalm 46:1
Yahweh, thank you for being my refuge and strength. Father, please help me to remember this when my world shakes and my heart trembles with fear. Today, oh God shelter me, in your strong, safe arms. In Christ’s name, Amen.
