God is our refuge and strength
"God is our refuge and strength— a very present help in times of trouble! " Psalm 46:1
What an accumulation of encouragement is afforded in these precious words! God is our refuge in times of trouble; and not our refuge only, but our strength . He is our help also—a present help, yes, "a very present help in times of trouble."
Let these truths be received and heartily believed—and then we shall not faint in the day of adversity. Taking God at His Word, we shall . . .
flee to Him as our Refuge,
trust in Him as our Strength,
look to Him as our Help, and
realize that whatever earthly friend is absent—our God is very near, "a very present help in times of trouble."
Afflicted Christian, yield not to unbelief—watch and pray against it. Listen to no suggestions of the evil one—he would insinuate that God has forsaken you, that He is afar off, that He is indifferent to your sorrow. Believe him not—he is "the father of lies!"
Take God at His Word, trust Him, cast yourself upon Him, pour out your heart to Him—and He will surely sustain you, and you will prove His faithfulness and love!
