God Will Help

"When facing a crisis, read Psalm 46.” 


The book of Psalms is in the middle of the Bible which is appropriate because the Psalms talk about everything that happens in the middle of life. Find Psalm 46 in your Bible or online and read it.  http://www.esvbible.org/Psalm%2046/

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1, KJV)

That's a wonderful first verse! Who does He help? Those who make Him their refuge. Those who look to Him for safety. God will help us! You, me, us. He helps in different ways at different times but will always keep us from ever being separated from Him.

Because He helps us, we don’t need to be afraid. Even earthquakes and floods can’t shake us. But when I’m in the middle of a life-quake I sometimes feel shaky. That’s when I need to be reminded to be still and know that He is God and that He is above everything. Did you ever try complaining and being still before God at the same time? Did you ever try worrying and being still before God at the same time? Turning off complaining and worrying leaves a stillness so we can remember that God is in charge. And He will help us. I need to be reminded that no matter how I feel, the fact is that God is my helper and He can’t be shaken.

God will help.

Which crisis was Laura thinking about when she wrote, “When facing a crisis, read Psalm 46?” Maybe it was the prairie fire in Little House on the Prairie, chapter 22. Ma and Pa did what they could, and then the fire went around them. When you read it, think about some of the ways God was their help.

Laura’s Bible called God, the “Lord of Hosts” twice in Psalm 46. That means He is the God of armies of servants. Lots of them. Can you imagine angel armies? Here’s a song about the God of angel armies being by our sides. It’s sung by Chris Tomlin: http://youtu.be/qOkImV2cJDg  When you hear it, be encouraged, God will help.
