 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 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.
