Sunday Reflection: Refuge and Strength

When life and people hurt you, be assured that the “Most High” is bigger than anything you are facing. He who dwells in the souls of his children, will cover your enemy with "mighty waters" using only a breath (Ex. 15:10). Nothing goes unnoticed by our Father. 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.

God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.

Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth.

He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 

Psalm 46 (NIV) emphasis mine

Blessings,
Teresa

  1. Life sure does want to take a crap on us at times. Always good to have a bright spot.

  2. The Father has always been there for me: when my father deserted me on mean streets, when my step-father tried to kill me, when my home burned down around my head, when all those I loved died, when hurricanes forced me and the rest of Lake Charles from our homes twice, when cancer rose its frightening head -- His Word and His Presence never left me. Have a healing Sunday, Roland
