Does it ever feel like things are falling apart all around
you? The writer of today's psalm, Psalm 46, sure did! He speaks of
mountains being moved, waters roaring, nations raging,
kingdoms tottering. Yet, even in the midst of these
life-shaking events, he's confident that one thing remains
unmoved-the Lord. "God is our refuge and strength, a very
present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). The same God is your refuge,
too. In Christ Jesus, you are saved, not only from the troubles of
this world, but also from sin, death, and that old evil foe, the
devil. Martin Luther put it this way in the famous words of his
hymn based on this same psalm:
A mighty fortress is our God, A trusty shield and
He helps us free from ev'ry need That hath us now o'er
The old evil foe Now means deadly woe;
Deep guile and great might Are his dread arms in
On earth is not his equal. -LSB 656:1
