PostSubject: Our Ever-Present Help   Sat Aug 26, 2017 9:27 pm

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear… The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” Psalm 46:1-2, 11

Our hearts yearn for a life without trouble, but God does not guarantee that. What He does promise is that He will be our refuge and strength while we experience trouble. When we learn to count on Him, we will not be gripped by terror even in times of disaster.

Services we depend on—cell phones, electricity, water, fire and police protection—may all fail. One resource remains untouched by catastrophe: God. Nothing can cut us off from Him as long as we have invited Him into our hearts and lives through the finished work of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

The psalm writer describes the worst: natural disasters on land and sea, international crises of war, and political upheavals. Sometimes it sounds alarmingly like today. But even when our tragedies reach beyond human intervention, our Savior is there. It’s not that He comes running when you call on Him—He is already there even as the disaster strikes! And He’s been there all along, not just as an onlooker or even as a compassionate rescue worker. He is your personal, secure refuge and strength. I know God stands by me and my wife right now...amidst my wife's battle for her life against leukemia. The God who stood by Jacob (deceitful and wayward as he often was) will stand by you, too.

Insight: No troubles in your life right now? Praise God for that but also know that when the next trial does come, He is your refuge.

Reader's Prayer: Father God, Help me to know deep in my heart, as long as I am saved by the blood of Jesus, that You are with me...all times of trouble and in times of peace. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
