 Our Refuge and Strength

(Psalm 46)

+ + +

.

Lord we can come to You
And find shelter from the storms of life
For You are always present to help
To protect us from trouble and strife

.

 

Though the earth vanish from sight
And the mountains are carried away
Yet will we not be afraid
For You are our hope and stay

.

 

If the waters begin to roar
And there is trouble all about
There is One who will help us
When we are filled with doubt

.

 

God walks in our midst
To comfort and to guide
Our enemies will be defeated
If in Him we will abide

.

 

Come now and behold
What for us the Lord has done
How He destroyed the heathen nations
Before the going down of the sun

.

 

He made the wars to cease
In the land that to us He did give

The facts of any situation include the hopelessness of the difficulty we face, but they also include the reality of God’s power to work in our impossible situation. Someone said,

.

 

*** LOOK AROUND—-AND BE DISTRESSED,

*** LOOK WITHIN—-AND BE DEPRESSED,

*** LOOK TO JESUS—-AND BE AT REST.

.

 

In fact, that’s the only way we can be at rest when we face an impossible situation: Look to Jesus. Focus on Him instead of on the circumstances. Fill our mind with God’s Word. Concentrate our attention on His promises.

.

Yes, faith means that we face reality—-and then make a conscious choice to believe and trust God. The battle is NOT

A Scripture A Day…

 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

my God, my strength, in whom I will trust;

my buckler, and the horn of my salvation,

and my high tower.

– (Psalm 18:2)

..

 

The story is told of a young preacher named Augustus Toplady who was taking a walk through the English countryside when a sudden storm swept across the landscape.  Toplady spotted a wide rock formation with an opening; a cleft where he sought shelter until the storm passed.  As he sat out the deluge, he contemplated the connection between his shelter and God’s help in life’s storms.

..

He had no paper to write on but found a playing card on the floor of the cave-like structure and began to write the words of the hymn “Rock of Ages”.  Written on that stormy day in 1775, this hymn has been a source of strength for Christians ever since.

..

Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood,

From Thy wounded side which flowed,

Be of sin the double cure,

Save from wrath and make me pure.

..

Think of your struggles.

Do you need a place to hide?

Do you need Someone to shelter you from life’s assaults?

Do you need the assurance that you’ve been forgiven?

..

As Toplady experienced, we can find shelter and assurance in God.

Don’t stand out in life’s storms alone.

“DON’T  QUIT”

.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

 

When the road you’re trudging

 

seems all up hill,

 

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

.

(~)~(~)~(~)

.

Life is odd with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

 

 

(~)~(~)~(~)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Success is failure turned inside out,

 

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.

It may be near when it seems so far.

So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.

 

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a
Genie’s lamp.

..
She picked it up, rubbed it & a Genie appeared. The amazed woman
asked if she was entitled to three wishes.

..

The Genie said “No. Due to inflation, constant downsizing, low
wages in third world countries & fierce global competition, I can
only grant you one wish. So what’ll it be?”

..

The woman didn’t hesitate. She said “I want peace in the Middle
East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with
each other.”

..

The Genie looked at the map & exclaimed “Gadzooks, lady! These
countries have been at war for thousands of years. I’m good, but
not THAT good! I don’t think it can be done. Make another wish.”

..
The woman thought for a minute and said, “Well, I’ve never been
