God Is Our Refuge and Strength

Do you believe God will not leave you or forsake you? You do well, for He has given His Son Jesus so that you may live. He will not allow sin to choke the very hope that is in you. His deliverance is as sure as the sun rises and the sun sets.

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

(Psalms 46:1-3)

Our enemies may cause us to stumble. That ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, may raise walls against us. Fear not and take heart, for God Himself will provide you a way of escape. All will one day bow their knees to the Eternal. Not a one shall escape His judgment.

Our God made the heavens and the earth. He made all that is. Has the sun so vanished from the sky? Has the ocean dried up from shore to shore? Be it far from us! Then how difficult would it be for God to send an angel of light to pull us from the mire? No other God can do that.

Godโ€™s plan will not fail. We will not fall short of the purpose for which He has created us. He will purge our lives of the sin that seeks to ensnare us. He will defeat our enemies. They will drop to their knees. God is our refuge and strength.

  2. He seems so far away. He’s turned away from me in disgust. I fasted but couldn’t manage a single word of prayer. What I’ve become, I don’t think he will save.
