Psalm 46:1…”God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” This psalm encourages hope and trust in God. Hope in his power and providence, and his gracious presence with his church in the worst of times. We can apply it to spiritual enemies, and the encouragement we have that, through Christ, we will be conquerors over them. He is a present Help, and a Help always found when we seek Him. We cannot desire a better Help, nor will we ever find one in idols or persons.
