- Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
When trouble hits, trust in God. He will protect you and keep you safe. God is a good Father, He protects His children. He hides us and holds us really tight. There is nothing like the hug of our Father. God is always there.
He is a very present help. Even when it seems that if God is not there, trust me He is. A very present help means on going, continually there help. There is never a time when we are not in His hands. Trust in God and run to Him.
Later the Psalmist will tell us to be still and know that He is God. Knowing who God is and trusting Him allows us to sit quietly before Him. Having His peace will us calm and be able to be still before Him. Knowing who God is, brings this peace upon us. Do not worry about this world. The worst this world can do to you is kill you, but if you are saved by Jesus, all that means is you will go to be with Him. Jesus said to not fear those who can end our lives, but to fear God who can both end our lives here and condemn us to hell. Be still and take refuge in God!
Father, I thank You so much that You love me and protect me. I thank You for Your peace, which passes all understanding. I thank You for always being there for me. Help me to not fear this world, but to fear You. In Jesus name, Amen.
