Day 46, Psalm 46

God is Our Mighty Fortress

This psalm was written after a great victory in the years of Jehoshaphat.  It’s a song boasting of God’s mighty power and faithfulness.  When my oldest son was young, he used to say, “It’s not bragging if it’s true”. I thought of his words after I read this psalm.  How fortunate are we that God’s mighty works have been recorded for us to read? It helps us imagine what is possible today with God’s mighty intervention.

I especially like verse 10, in the Contemporary English Version.

Our God says, “Calm down, and learn that I am God!  All nations on earth will honor me.”

When we are confident that God’s will – will prevail, we can look to the future with a victory mindset.  We know He will win, even though we cannot see the finish line from here.  We push forward in faith.  These words in verse 10 can comfort us when we feel unsure and panicked.  We need to seek the Lord and learn that He is God. 

See you tomorrow for Psalm 47
