God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (KJV)
Being safe, and safety is a concern for many citizens of the United States and the rest of the world. Many are dependent upon their government, security companies, body guards, and such. These things have a great tendency to fail.
The place for “Refuge” is not in trusting government of any nation, or the United Nations. The Psalmist tells us, and it is so very true; “God is our refuge” He is our place of safety.
“Refuge” is a shelter. Maybe even a hiding place where we can go just to be alone with God. God is also the source of our boldness, our might, our strength.
Some feel that God; if He exists is way off somewhere else, and nowhere near this earth; or at least nowhere near themselves. The Psalmist has another thought, and the one I hold. He is a very present help in trouble. He is even Help when there is no trouble.
You can trust the Lord in times of trouble; in times of fear and assault from others. You can depend on Him to aid you and give you strength through the worst trial of your life. In Him through Jesus the Christ, Son of the Living God there is life.
