God is our refuge and strength

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” – Psalm 46:1

Many people today are terrified of mountains or towns collapsing into the sea as a result of an earthquake or a nuclear detonation or due to their present terrible situations in life.

But Psalms 45:1 says that we need not to be afraid even if the world were to end. Despite the impending doom, Christians must have faith in God’s capacity to save us.

Even in the face of absolute catastrophe, it seems difficult to imagine the end of the world without getting terrified, yet the Bible makes it clear that God is our refuge. He is more than a temporary refuge; He is our eternal safe haven, capable of providing strength in every situation.

This Psalm 46:1 emphasizes hope and trust in God’s power and providence, as well as His gracious presence with His people even under the most difficult of circumstances. We can apply it to spiritual adversaries and the assurance that, through Christ, we will be victorious over them.

He is a Help, a current Help, a Help found, one whom we have found to be so; a Help at hand, one who is always around; we cannot ask for anything more, and we will never find anything like Him in any creature.

Let those who put their reliance on a floating foundation be worried by the disturbing of the waves; but let those who are brought to the Rock and find firm footing there not be alarmed.

Even in difficult times, the church is full of joy. The river alludes to the graces and consolations of the Holy Spirit, which flow through every part of the church, and through God’s sacred ordinances, gladdening the heart of every believer.

It is promised that the church shall not be moved. If God be in our hearts, by his word dwelling richly in us, we shall be established, we shall be helped; let us trust and not be afraid.
