Psalm 46:1 God Is Our Refuge And Strength, A Very Present Help In Trouble. 2 Therefore Will Not We Fear, Though The Earth Be Removed, And Though The Mountains Be Carried Into The Midst Of The Sea; 3 Though The Waters Thereof Roar And Be Troubled, Though The Mountains Shake With The Swelling Thereof.
In our pain we may think we never have a refuge because the pain can seem to never stop. For some of us, the pain really does never stop. However, over the span of our little time here on earth, we can have refuge in Christ Jesus. Even now, here on earth, we have Christ who we can count on to be with us. Naturally, we want Him to take away our pain. We want Jesus to take away our tribulations. Of course, we know Jesus does not always take away our pain and tribulations here on earth. We do not always know why Jesus does not answer our pleas and petitions when we think we need them answered. No matter what Jesus does or does not do for us in our earthly life, we know He loves us and He has prepared a place for us in heaven where pain no longer exists. Because we know Christ is our ultimate strength and refuge, we have no reason to fear.
