God is Present

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

I once had a MRI scan and I did not know before then that I was terrified of small spaces. The noise and racket from that machine caused me so much fear and panic.

The morning before the scan I set my alarm for 6a.m. but I was awake at 5a.m. Unable to go back to sleep I decided to have a quiet time of reflection and meditation. Jehovah is your name is the song that came into my spirit during that quiet time. I also meditated on the scriptures about God being with us and fighting our battles. 

During the noise, racket and fear of the scan, the words Jehovah is your name rang over and over in my head. God is with me, God is with me and he promises to never leave nor forsake me. Deuteronomy 31:6

This is a promise that amidst the noise of our lives and the many voices from the enemy to instil fear that God is present. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Psalm 46:2

When we become still and listen we will hear him speak. He is present in the storm and in the midst of trouble and despair. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm‬ ‭46:1‬
