“God is our refuge and energy, a really current assist in bother. Due to this fact, we won’t concern, despite the fact that the earth be eliminated, and although the mountains be carried into the midst of the ocean.” Psalm 46:1,2 (NKJV)
Dwelling close to some of the majestic mountains of the Cascade vary, I’m consistently reminded of the would possibly and presence of our Creator God. Rounding a nook as I drove to work sooner or later, I used to be met by one other breathtaking view of Mount Hood. Because it towered immediately in entrance of me, its magnificence and steadfast presence introduced these verses to thoughts: “We won’t concern. . .although the mountains be carried into the midst of the ocean.”
My creativeness started to run wild. What if one thing as positive and steadfast as Mount Hood did uproot and was instantly hurled into the Pacific Ocean? A mountain dropped within the sea would trigger an alarm better than its splash. Worry can be essentially the most pure end result.
If that had been to occur, what would we do? Scripture says, “We won’t concern.” If we won’t concern, even when essentially the most terrifying “pure catastrophe” had been to happen, will we concern in monetary uncertainty, political upheaval, an unknown future, or a scary prognosis?
“We won’t concern” isn’t a mantra to be recited constantly till we persuade ourselves to do what we are saying. It’s the response of religion within the character of our steadfast God – a God extra steadfast than the very best mountains and extra current than our overwhelming troubles. We won’t concern, as a result of “God is our refuge and energy, a really current assist in bother.”
Prayer: Father, Thank You for being our refuge and energy. Thank You for Your abiding presence. Grant us the religion to belief You with our uncertainties. Grant us the religion that swallows concern, for Your Identify’s sake. Amen.
