God Is Our Refuge and Strength

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

Verse 1 of the Psalm declares some things about God, they are comforting, reassuring reminders. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. It is a great reminder for today and every day.

God is our refuge – a place of safety and shelter and is also our strength, the one who gives us strength when we are weak. As well as those emergency times, this verse reminds us that God is also a very present help in trouble.

Our refuge is in God alone, and He is more than sufficient! He is not a secondary refuge that we should look to when all other means have failed to the contrary, He is our first, primary and ONLY refuge.

We have a strong hiding place that we can run to, a shelter from every storm in our lives. God is our help. He is with us throughout every struggle and knows our pain. No matter what we face we can be confident. Why? God is our very present help. Present help indicates His nearness even in the midst of trouble. He is with us.

When we take refuge in God, He gives us strength and is always with us. Not to mention, He is abundantly available, he is our help in trouble.

He is so many wonderful things for us. He is our Father, our Saviour, our Comforter, our Good Shepherd, our Healer, our Friend, our Hope, he is forever our sure Refuge and Strength.

Thank you for choosing to visit my blog and read this post. May God bless you with His comforting peace and presence in the month ahead.

I am Fay Ann, and it is pretty simple. I am a firm believer in God and a Christian blogger who loves writing. My mission is to encourage others to continue living for Christ and remain faithful, focus and fervent. I know God loves me and he also loves you because you are His child; and his nature is to love His children. I am here to declare God’s praises to those who don’t know him so they can find his marvellous light and leave their world of darkness. It is also my desire to become a channel of inspiration and hope to other people especially women who are struggling. I also have the passion to inspire young people to live their life with a purpose for the Lord. I have learned that what milk is to a baby’s body, the word of God is to the soul. It is the food that fuels healthy spiritual growth and just like your mother used to tell you, if you want to grow you need to eat. I feel strongly that these daily reminders of God’s word and presence in our lives is key to maintaining a Godly perspective as we begin each day; and pray that you will be inspired and blessed by the daily devotionals and are passing them along to family and friends. My favourite activities include reading, writing and spending time with great friends and family. I love to share the best thing in my life, the gospel. Let’s be stronger together. You can subscribe below to receive free grace-filled devotionals for your encouragement. God Bless you richly. Shalom.
