Psalm 46, ‘Our Refuge and Strength’

I read this Psalm this morning–Psalm 46, “God is our refute and strength”–and I want to share it with you.

God’s providence is woven into the fiber of the physical universe, sustaining it moment by moment. But He is also the Lord of Hosts, mighty in battle: and when He intervenes in history–watch out!

Hymn, ‘Like a River Glorious’

If I were to write of all the evil done and spoken in this evil age, I would distress myself and you. But let God be our refuge and our strength–in the words of this old hymn, “Like a river glorious.”

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved. God shall help her, and that right early.         Psalm 46:4-5
