God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
God is not merely in the room with you, He is fully attentive to you. He’s never distracted, preoccupied, or disinterested.
Regardless of the quaking or roaring around you, He is so very present that He knows your quietest sigh. You don’t have to look anywhere else for help because He is VERY present at this VERY moment.
The rest of this psalm reiterates this promise:
- God is in the midst
- God will help
- The Lord of hosts is with us
- God is our stronghold
God Himself speaks the words of the natural conclusion we should draw when we realize that He is VERY present at this VERY moment—
“Be still, and know that I am God!”
