Click here to read Psalm 46

1.  God's Presence in the midst of our Pain
Very Present - 1
holy Habitation 4
God is in the midst 5
The Lord is with us - 7, 11

2.  God's Protection in the midst of our Pain.
Refuge, 1
Help, 1
We will not fear, 2

3.  God's Peace in the midst of our Pain.
Glad 4
Our fortress - 7, 11
Be Still- 10

4.  God's Power in the midst of our Pain.
He utters his voice. 6
Brought desolations - he is in control 8
He makes wars cease 9

5.  God's Purpose in the midst of our Pain.
He is always at work, in action throughout this psalm
I will be exalted - 10

All of this is true, even when it feels, and therefore we think, he is absent...

"Though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea..."

  • Storm
  • Lazarus
  • Jesus

When we find ourselves in trouble, let's consider...  God's Presence, Protection, Peace, Power, Purpose
