Psalm 46

46       Wisdom / Royal (heavenly King) / (Korah)

            God’s Is My Refuge and Strength!

            1 God is our refuge and strength,

            A very present help in trouble.

·         In seeking comfort and protection go to God himself. All his attributes, all his titles, all his promises show that he is wise and loving. The practice of the saints in all ages has been not to rest in any means or creature; but in God only.

·         One great end of affliction is to cause us to return unto the Most High. The greater our distress, the more we need him.

·         “Our faith is really and truly tested only when we are brought into very severe conflicts, and when even hell itself seems opened to swallow us up.”
