One of the most amazing things about God is that he always has us covered, He is our ever-present help. In whatever situation or time, you can be sure God is watching and looking out for you and me.

Today, I will be talking to you about one of the many attributes of God.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. – Psalms 46:1-3 (NIV)

Wow! What a word. What an assurance.

Let’s pick up the words one after the other and analyze them.

God is our refuge!

The dictionary defines the word refuge as a place or state of safety from danger or trouble.

We all know how troubled the world is at this time. News of wars fill our television screen and social media waves. There is no guaranteed place of safety as the bible rightly says the heart of man is desperately wicked.

But here, God is assuring us that despite all the bad news we keep hearing daily, despite the failed system of government, despite the inadequacies of man, he is our refuge.

Are you in trouble? Do you think or feel what you have done is so enormous, that you cannot come out of it? Then run to God and he will deliver you.

God’s desire for us his children is to live life to the fullest, and all of these are represented in the bible as proof of his promises and commitment toward us.

Are you a child of God? If yes, then believe in his word and be rest assured that “God’s got you!”

To be continued.

Dear Father, help me to always trust in your word. Amen.

Action point:
Dedicate time to meditate on God’s word

God is my refuge and strength, my ever-present help in trouble.
