A Very Present Help
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” – Psalm 46:1
Hi dear friends! Thank you so much for your support in reading and following my blog. I appreciate you!
It’s good to know that there is someone you can count on when trouble comes. The Bible tells us that God is a very present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1). We don’t have to wait for Him to show up, to drive to our location, or to figure out where we are like we do with people. The Lord is present with us, and not only is He present – He’s very present. That’s a beautiful promise.
And because He is very present, “we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea” (Psalm 46:2). Though everything around us may seem to be falling apart, we can stand on the promises of God because we know that He is with us.
So no matter what you’re going through, the Lord does not want you to be afraid or to worry. He takes care of the sparrows and He’ll take care of you, too. It’s the Father’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom (Luke 12:32). We needn’t be worried about the trouble or the hardships that we face. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
Do you have a sound mind in the midst of your troubles? Do you recognize God as your strength and refuge? I hope so. He’s our place of safety and from Him we draw our strength. And it’s because He is very present with us.
May God bless you and keep you. May He cause His face to shine upon you.
