As I started to gather my thoughts on what my post would be this week, I felt nudge to listen to a podcast, which then directed me to Psalm 46. And then as I read Psalm 46, and as I started to format the idea of a writing around Psalm 46, I heard, “Let My words be your words.” I’m not sure why, but I’m following the Spirit’s prompting…and my hope is this is for you.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall
God will help her at break of day. Nations are in an uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us, the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Come and see what the Lord had done, the desolation he has brought on earth
He makes the wars cease to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire.
He says, “Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Are you knowing Him in the stillness, friend? His miracles are around you in each and every moment, and more than anything, He wants you to take hold of all that He has for you now, in this very moment.
What is He whispering to you to right now?
