Even Though The Earth Should Give Way, 4 of 5

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah. Psalm 46:1-3 ESV, a declaration of the sons of Korah.

Your natural refuge may not be morally wrong. Asa turned only to his physicians (2 Chronicles 16:12). Turning to parents, friends, self-help books. etc. is not, as is adultery, morally wrong. But it is idolatry. God’s plan is that He be our only shelter. His refuge is a secret and safe place reserved for His children. Those who live in the shelter of the Most High are protected (Psalm 91:1-4 NLT).

Psalm 46 tells us the benefits of taking refuge in God:
1. Strength from God (Verse 1);
2. Help from God (Verse 1);
3. Peace from God (Verse 2).

The sons of Korah also gave us Psalm 46:10: “Be still and know that I am God.” Their call is to wake up, pay attention, be in awe of God; in the midst of any storm you are safe inside the shelter of God. As relevant and true today as it was in 1000 BC.
