For the past couple of days, I have been basing the daily devotion on Psalm 46. In this Psalm, we see that God is our refuge and our strength. Today we see in verse one, “God is an ever-present help in trouble.”
Take a moment and think about those words. Let them sink in. Let them give you peace and comfort, for we are indeed living in a ‘time of trouble’ around the world. Times of trouble come to everyone, personally, but also corporately, like now. Read through the Psalms, and see the writers pour out fears, struggles, anguish before the LORD. Yet also take note of how the writers come back to remind themselves that God is still in control; everything is still in his hands, for he is our strength. Rest in that knowledge.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, we give you thanks and praise during these difficult times knowing that in you we have the strength to overcome life’s obstacles. Thank you for being our God, a God that we can trust. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
