Is there something going on in your life that’s causing panic attacks, causing you to freak out, or intimidating you a little bit? Check out Psalm 46! Let the truth of this promise wash over you afresh and encourage your heart today.
“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.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.” (Psalm 46:1-11 NKJV)
Try it for yourself
In the stillness, the Lord is present to demonstrate His great love and power in and through our lives. Has the busyness of life allowed the anxieties of the world to creep in? Try taking 5 minutes to be still and let the Lord minister His shalom over you in the midst of the trials and tribulations.
Be still and know, He’s God.
