GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH

March 17

God’s people find safety and courage when they trust in Him. He is a shelter from danger and a source of strength for them. Consequently, they need not fear even though they face many tragedies. Martin Luther felt inspired to write the hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” because of this psalm. The figure of the mountains sliding into the sea pictures a terrible disaster, as do those of the storm-tossed sea and the earthquake. “Utter Confusion, Unutterable Peace,” is what one author titled his explanation of this psalm.

Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
