When Times Are Tough

Times are tough right now.  There is no doubt about it.  However, there is no better time than now to stand and declare to a hurting world: OUR GOD IS A REGUE AND STRENGTH, ALWAYS READY TO HELP IN TIMES OF TROUBLE!

Whether we find ourselves in good times or bad, God's Word broadcasts the character of God.  One of God's main attributes is hero.  His desire is to save us, even from ourselves!  Below is a passage from Psalm 46:1-11.  For me, this passage has been solid ground during the earthquakes of life and a declaration of God's presence and power during both good times and bad.

Psalm 46
God Protects His People
1 God is our protection and our strength. He always helps in times of trouble.

So we will not be afraid even if the earth shakes,
or the mountains fall into the sea,

even if the oceans roar and foam,
or the mountains shake at the raging sea.

There is a river that brings joy to the city of God,
the holy place where God Most High lives.

God is in that city, and so it will not be shaken.
God will help her at dawn.

Nations tremble and kingdoms shake.
God shouts and the earth crumbles.

The Lord All-Powerful is with us;
the God of Jacob is our defender.

Come and see what the Lord has done,
the amazing things he has done on the earth.

He stops wars everywhere on the earth.
He breaks all bows and spears
and burns up the chariots with fire. 10 God says, “Be still and know that I am God.I will be praised in all the nations; I will be praised throughout the earth.” 11 The Lord All-Powerful is with us;the God of Jacob is our defender.
