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. (NKJV)
The Lord is near. He is available even when your life is being turned upside down. I like that this verse says that he is “very present.” God is teaching me that He is more near to us than we even realize. He is right here, right now, always. Because He is very present, we do not need to fear. God doesn’t give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Let the God of all comfort be your refuge and strength today. Turn to Him to break free from fear.
