God is Our Refuge and Strength

2019 November 21

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 NKJV

Sometimes things have to get pretty bad in our lives, before we realize the full extent of that verse, that God is our refuge and strength.

It is amazing how God provided for animals to survive in such severe conditions that humans never could. To me, it's proof of God's love for all of His creation. In Genesis, after each day of creation, He saw that it was good - or very good! He loves the animals as much or more than we do.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Peggy. I hope you are doing okay. Losing a loved one leaves a hole in our heart that time eventually heals, but we are forever changed by the loss. When my mom passed away in 2006, God kept bringing the verses of Psalm 23 to me. There was a song out at the time that quoted from that Psalm. It seemed every time I got in the car to go anywhere, that song was playing - a reminder that God was going through the valley with me. We can know verses, even have them memorized, but it's when we encounter something very difficult that the full meaning of the verses hit us.

    My husband unexpectedly died this summer. This verse is very meaningful right now.
