Psalm 46

ps46.jpgGreetings!  This Psalm has some famous verses in it that you may want to commit to memory if you haven’t already. 

Psalm 46

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.

1 God is our refuge and strength,

an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam

and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah

I love those verses.  When I focus on all God is and all He has done, I realize there is nothing to fear.  But the worries of the world consistently chip away at that, so I need to remind myself of this often.  God will give us strength and He has given us refuge – a place to stay and even hide if we need to. 

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy place where the Most High dwells.

5 God is within her, she will not fall;

God will help her at break of day.

6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;

he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The Lord Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

8 Come and see the works of the Lord,

the desolations he has brought on the earth.

9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;

he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,

he burns the shields with fire.

10 “Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

The Holy Bible : New International Version. 1996, c1984. Grand Rapids: Zondervan.

Yes, be still and know that He is God!  I need to do more of that – just being still and reflecting on him and his goodness.  When you are done reading this, please be still for a time and think about God and his message.  He is with believers and can mold and strengthen us to his image.
