Right Words at the Right Time

Since the start of the year, the Lord has been bringing me to an entirely new level of “faith stretching” (a term I’ve been learning to deeply love and appreciate, by the way). It’s so painful, yet the joy of knowing Him more is utterly incomparable.

By God’s grace, I’m in a process of learning to yield to His will, not mine (though I’ve still got a long way to go).  And tonight, as I press on in the midst of struggles, this psalm spoke to me in a way I’ve never experienced before.

I am left floored by how perfect God’s timing is. Like a very dear friend, He surely has a “knack” of saying the right words at the right time. I’m just thankful for how He ministered to me this evening.

So whether you’re experiencing victory or you are in a posture of pain, may Psalm 46 bring profound encouragement to your heart. 🙂


God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,

though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy habitation of the Most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;

God will help her when morning dawns.

The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has brought desolations on the earth.

He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire.

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
