Psalm 46: Be still

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

10 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 of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah  Psalm 46

The Lord is our refuge and our strength.  In a world filled with darkness and chaos we must turn our attention and our focus on Jesus Christ.  The Lord will provide every need we have and He will go before us and prepare the way.  No matter the trials and tribulation we face in this life the Lord will carry us through every single one.  He uses all things to refine and transform our hearts and our lives.  But the key is drawing near to the Lord in all circumstances.  It is natural for us as people to desire to isolate ourselves when we feel overwhelmed.  But it is in the moments when we feel our weakest and we feel overwhelmed that we need to draw as close as possible to the Lord.  His strength is perfected in our weakness.  We are overcomers because of who He is.
