Our Backbone & Brawn (Psalm 46)

The Lord keeps giving me Psalm 46 through a variety of means, so I knew it was time to dig deeper into it and let Him minister to my heart. Whoa.


Psalm 46

God is our refuge. Our place to hide, our escape. He is our hideaway. God is our strength. He is our backbone and brawn, the courage we lack. Our stability and security. His solace never ceases. His sanctuary is sustained and unyielding. His comfort is continuous and enduring. He is our source of nourishment, remedy, and guidance when we are bent to our breaking point, overwhelmed by adversity.

Therefore, we will not fear. We won't be intimidated in watching the world fall to pieces, or frightened by the pandemonium around us. Through tsunamis and earthquakes, we will not be afraid.

Selah


Because, in the midst of this mess, there is a continuous, rushing flow of living water; it satisfies and sustains the holy dwelling of the Most High God. He is within her, she will not collapse. God will be her aid from the very first moment of the day.

Wars and famines, genocides and disasters. Governments disintegrating. But the Lord could utter one single word and the whole world would liquefy and evaporate.

The Lord of angels, the King of kings, is on our side. Our Heavenly Father, who loves us through our worshiping Him and wrestling with Him, is our protector.

Selah

Come, take a look at His story - history. Look at all the ways He has shown the world His power. No matter how massive the military or advanced the weapons and technology, they are no match for God. He can level the earth without breaking a sweat.

"Stop. Relax. Put your efforts on hold. Let yourself go weak. Just know who I Am - the Infinite. The Indestructible. The Almighty. I will be number one in all cultures; I will be glorified by my creation."

The Lord of angels, the King of kings, is on our side. Our Heavenly Father, who loves us through our worshiping Him and wrestling with Him, is our protector.

Selah
