A Help in Times of Trouble


 S (Scripture): Psalm 46:1 God is our strong refuge;
he is truly our helper in times of trouble.
46:2 For this reason we do not fear when the earth shakes,
and the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea,
46:3 when its waves crash and foam,
and the mountains shake before the surging sea.
…46:7 The Lord who commands armies is on our side!
The God of Jacob is our protector!

O (Observation): What a great image for us today.  God is our stronghold, our refuge, our protector…a Mighty Fortress. 

Surely, these were comforting words to God’s people in all times and places. 

A (Application): As a Lutheran, I can’t help but think of the wonderful hymn, “A Mighty Fortress is our God.”  This hymn was written by Martin Luther, and is based on Psalm 46. 

This text seems to have been a source of comfort and praise in the midst of uncertainty or chaos.

If today feels like uncertainty or chaos, or if you just need some time to relax today, click on this link and let this wonderful song comfort you this day. Just a heads up, it’s probably been played like you’ve never heard it before.

P (Prayer): Lord, you know our weakness.  Be our strength against the crashing waves that best against us.  Amen.
