Psalm 46 says, “To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. 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. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.” (Psalm 46).
Good morning. With all the lies in the world, isn’t it great to have TRUTH you can stand on? The Word of God is true, and will never change. If you could change the truth, it would no longer be truth, but lies. Evolution is taught in schools as the truth. Does that make it true? In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, and everything else. No, a little dust-ball suddenly appeared and started spinning around the universe. Faster and faster the dust-ball spun, collecting more dust on it’s travels. The spinning dust-ball compacted itself tighter and tighter. Then BANG! It exploded and the planets were formed. Which is true? I heard somebody say this week, “What is truth for one person, may not be truth for another.”
Is that true? It may be a politically correct statement, but it is not the truth. Truth will always be true no matter what. Anything that is not truth is a lie. Malachi 3:6 tells us, “…I am the LORD, I change not…”
Because God doesn’t change, His Words will not change. They are true Words which will endure for all time. That’s what I like about Psalm 46. God is in control, and we have His truth that we can stand on.
God is our Refuge. I doesn’t matter if evil men try to push their Socialism, and take away our freedom, there is freedom in God. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed (John 8:6). Run to God. God is our refuge.
God is our Strength. Can we survive the lose of a job? …$8.00 a gallon for gas? …the rising cost of living? Yes we can! Because I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Phillippians 4:13). God is our strength.
God is our Help. What will happen when the powers-that-be come after you for speaking the truth, and not being politically correct? “And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.” (Psalm 37:40). God is our help.
We can stand firmly on His truth, and He will keep us from falling.
Peace. (Psalm 37:37)
