Today’s Scripture Selection: Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength, and ever present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear….”

We all need help now and then.

Sometimes, we need more than a little.

So where does it come from – or to put it in good old King James language, “From whence does it come?”

It comes from God.  At least, the best help comes to us that way.

It is the help that is our

  • Refuge
  • Strength
  • Ever present source of guidance and grace.

The shelves are filled with “self-help” books.  Some are pretty good; many are terrible.

The airwaves – radio, TV, internet – are filled with “experts” of one kind or another.  Some are pretty good; many are terrible.

But God responds to us consistently, with great caring, with even greater patience and understanding, ever present.

The Psalmist had it right.  In the face of help such as this,

“…we will not fear.”

Prayer: Merciful God, thank you for your help that is not only ever present, but just the help I need, when I need it the most.  AMEN.
