Psalms 46:6 – The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
Rebecca and I are blessed with the opportunity to visit Israel soon. With the news surrounding the unstable nations in the Middle East, many people have asked if we are reconsidering the decision to go. Each time I have responded with a confident “no.” But, I have a confession to make. When I focus on the news I have concerns.
I love Psalms 46. I often pray the first few verses in times of trouble. “God is our refuge and strength…” Today, verse 6 jumped off the page. It doesn’t matter how unstable the nations around us are. “The nations rage, the kingdoms totter.” God is still in control. His power and protection are unparalleled. “He utters his voice, the earth melts.”
What verses do you cling to in times of trouble?
Psalm 27, “The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?….”
Sam, Joseph and Tim and Dad and I went to this Psalm on 9-11. I believe we tried to memorize it, but in any case, it was a deep, heart blessing.
