Psalm 46:1 God Is A Very Present Help

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

A refuge is a shelter, a place that protects from danger or trouble, a place of safety. A place that covers and provide, a place that offers rest and security.

Perhaps on today, you are experiencing  a situation that seem impossible to handle at this time. It may be a family issue, a marriage issue, a wayward child, a financial challenge or even a bad report from the doctor. Whatever you are experiencing today that appears to be hopeless and has left you feeling in despair, God is saying to you “I AM YOUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH, YOUR VERY PRESENT HELP IN TROUBLE. “

Psalms 91:1 declares on this morning that -he that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. The secret place provides protection from the enemy and the word of God builds our faith, which becomes a shield that protects all the attacks of the enemy. Knowing who we are and to whom we belong will greatly help us in our time of trouble. 

In your times of trouble seek out the Lord. In times of joy, forget Him not. He is ever present help. Keep your line of communication open between God and you…Psalm 97:11 tell us that,”Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.These are the promises you should hang on to when the going gets rough, These are the words that strengthen us, they carry us through the rough times. God tells us that He is crowning us with loving kindness, and tender mercies. His word tells us He will never leave us nor forsake us…What have we to fear? God loves us and He will  keep us safe.

Whatever you encounter on today in way of good or bad, remember that God is your refuge and your strength. He is a very present help in trouble.
