God is our Refuge

Reading this morning from Psalm 46, and these verses just popped out at me.
1God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
God is our refuge and strength regardless of the fearsomeness of life that goes on around us.

God is our very present help in trouble. He is present when there is trouble. He is a help when there is trouble. Not only is he a present help, he is a very present help. It is like saying that he is "just so there" when we need him.

That is God!
