What Does Psalm 46:1 Mean?

{To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.} God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1(KJV)

Verse of the Day

Our God is a strong shelter and a rock of refuge in Whom we can hide during the storms and difficulties of life. He is our tower of strength, our firm fortress, and our secure stronghold to Whom we can run for protection and safety in an increasingly Christ-rejecting, God-denying, anti-Semitic, and anti-Christian world.

But no matter how the nations rage and war against the Lord and His children, we have His unfailing assurance that the Lord of hosts is with us and will never leave us nor forsake us. The God of Jacob is our rock of refuge, our safe stronghold, and our ever present help in time of trouble.

As His children we are called to "fear not," for Christ has won the final victory, and we are assured that His triumph is credited to us as well.

The shelter that He affords is not to indulge or pamper us but to reassure us, strengthen us, and enable us to stand fast in the evil day. And as Paul tells us in Ephesians: "And having done all to stand," as the spiritual battle between our righteous God and Satan's wicked forces continues to rage throughout the godless nations of the world.

Let us be still and KNOW that God is our refuge, our strength, and our ever-present help in time of need.

Never let us forget that the Lord of Hosts IS still with us the God of Jacob IS still our refuge.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, how I praise You for Your Word and the truths within its pages. Thank You that You are my ever-present Rock of refuge and my never-failing strength and stronghold. Equip me, I pray, to stand fast in the evil day and to trust in Your Word, though the earth be moved and though the mountains be thrown into the midst of the sea. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
