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.
