God is our Refuge and Strength


While heading to work this morning, I walked upon a man standing in front of the newsstand where I board the train. When I approached where he stood, I noticed he had a bible in one hand and what I thought was him peering into the stand was not what it was. He was praying. Yes it sounds odd to see a man praying at a newsstand; but take a minute and look out into the world. We all need prayer. And if you do not believe; start with Psalm 46.

God loves you. Just ask him.

God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!
A river brings joy to the city of our God,
the sacred home of the Most High.
God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed.
From the very break of day, God will protect it.
The nations are in chaos,
and their kingdoms crumble!
God’s voice thunders,
and the earth melts!
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;
the God of Israel is our fortress.

Psalm 46: 1-7
