Psalm 46

Posted on March 26, 2020 by ELCA Youth Gathering

 

As we continue to adjust into the scary new reality of the unknown, we hope that you take the scripture below to heart. God is will us through this mess. God is with the sick, the poor, the anxious, the doctors, the public health officials, the grocery store workers, the elderly, and each and everyone one of you.

 

God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
    though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble with its tumult. 

 

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;
    God will help it when the morning dawns.
The nations are in an uproar, the kindoms totter;
    God’s voice utters, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge. 

 

Come, behold the works of the Lord;
    see what desolations God has brought on the earth.
God makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
    God breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;
    God burns the shields with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
    I am exalted among the nations,
    I am exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge.

-Psalm 46: 1-11
