March 17 Inspiration

Dear Friends:

Psalm 46 never fails to inspire me; especially that opening promise:
 God is our refuge and strength,
          an ever-present help in trouble.

From viral pandemics to painful personal news, Psalm 46 reminds us that the Lord is always with us.
It reminds us that:

God is our refuge

The word, “refuge” means “providing safe shelter.”
God is our safe place when we need protection; we can run to Him.

God is our strength

We don’t have to find the power to do this on our own; God is our strength and shield in these troubled times.
We can lean on Him!

God is an ever-present help in trouble

“Ever-present” is not just a theological term, it is our reality. God has promised to be with us in and through all times, especially in fearful times like these.

“Our “safe place” is not where we live, it is in whom we live.” (Tom White)
