Psalm 46:7 ~ (NIV) The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

How comforting is this verse of Scripture, how awesome the power which flows from it. It tastes so sweet like honey from the comb, so refreshing like a cool drink on a hot Summers day. Notice if you will the strength of this verse as it is emphasized by its dynamic introduction with the name of the LORD Almighty ‘ADONAI EL SHADDAI’ going before whatever is written, and then it leads into you into a place of security and peace knowing ADONAI EL SHADDAI is with you. Furthermore, this verse leads you onto the next stage, one which you can identify with by example, for just as the LORD was with Jacob who had a roller-coaster life style of mixed emotions during the highs and lows of his life, yet the LORD delivered him from all his troubles and prospered him. Just as the LORD lifted Jacob up, so He will rise you up. The LORD Almighty is with you He is your fortress, He is the One who will rescue you from all your troubles and prosper you.

Oh to rest in the awesome power of such a verse of Scripture which is repeated verbatim in verse 10. It is as if the LORD is reassuring you that He is with you today, that He is your all Sufficient One, He is everything you will ever need today and forevermore. All this from a Psalm which starts off with these words in verse one, “God is refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” God is your deliverer, your healer, your provider, protector, your advocate and your friend.

There is song written by Brian Doerksen with these wonderful words:

Faithful One so unchanging, Ageless One You’re my Rock of peace,

Lord of all I depend on You, I call out to You again and again,

I call out to You again and again.

You are my Rock in times of trouble, You lift me up when I fall down,

All through the storm Your love is thee anchor, My hope is in You alone.

My friend, let our text for today dwell within your heart, meditate upon it and be blessed knowing a fresh today God is speak directing to you, into every area of you life through Psalm 46:7 (NIV) The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

God bless you my friend, Matthew
