Our Mighty Fortress

I read these words this morning and they encouraged me. It’s not the first time they have and forgive me if I’ve shared portions of this passage before, but perhaps these words will encourage you as well today. Have a great day friends.

Psalm 46

1God is our mighty fortress, 
 always ready to help in times of trouble. 
2And so, we won’t be afraid! 
 Let the earth tremble 
 and the mountains tumble into the deepest sea. 
3Let the ocean roar and foam, 
 and its raging waves shake the mountains. 

4A river and its streams bring joy to the city, 
 which is the sacred home of God Most High. 
5God is in that city, and it won’t be shaken. 
 He will help it at dawn. 

6Nations rage! Kingdoms fall! 
 But at the voice of God the earth itself melts. 
7The LORD All-Powerful is with us. 
 The God of Jacob is our fortress. 

8Come! See the fearsome things 
 the LORD has done on earth. 
9God brings wars to an end all over the world. 
 He breaks the arrows, shatters the spears, 
 and burns the shields. 
10Our God says, “Calm down, and learn that I am God! 
 All nations on earth will honor me.” 

11The LORD All-Powerful is with us. 
 The God of Jacob is our fortress.
