Psalm 46

March 14, 2013

Not much to state tonight other than that I am extremely grateful for the group of girls that just left my house, after we gathered together to discuss a book we've started a study on (A Praying Life by Paul Miller).  

The Lord knows exactly what we need, when we need it and He sends in his army and troops after us.  He certainly did that for me tonight and I did not even know that I would be needing it beforehand!   

I pray that I will always have the undeserving honor of being a part of his army, to rush in and help those in need; only by His help and grace can I do that.  

The Psalm {46} listed below has been an extreme comfort to me lately.  I find so much peace in it; a reminder that there is no need to worry.  God's got this.  I hope you'll find peace in it, too.

 

 

 

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

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

8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

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