I AM YOUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH, an ever-present Help in trouble.
Therefore, you don't need to be afraid of anything—not even cataclysmic circumstances.
The media are increasingly devoted to fear-inducing subject matter: terrorism, serial killers, environmental catastrophes.
If you focus on such dangers and forget that I am your Refuge in all circumstances, you will become increasingly fearful.
Every day I manifest My grace in countless places and situations, but the media take no notice.
I shower not only blessings but also outright miracles on your planet.
As you grow closer to Me, I open your eyes to see more and more of My Presence all around you.
Things that most people hardly notice, like shifting shades of sunlight, fill you with heart-bursting Joy.
You have eyes that see and ears that hear, so proclaim My abiding Presence in the world.
- from " Jesus Calling " by Sarah Young
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." —PSALM 46: 1–3
"Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD."
—PSALM 89: 15
