Psalm 46:7

“The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.” (NASB)


“The LORD of hosts (tsaba' or tseba'ah: war, armies, battle, service, appointed time, warfare, soldiers, of whole creation) is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold (misgab: defense, refuge, high tower, high fort, secure height, retreat). Selah.”


The LORD of the armies, appointed times and all creation is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower and defense.


Where do you run when tumultuous times come your way? It had better be where you are already residing – the solace and security of the LORD. It is time to establish our dwelling in His mighty hand. I know where I physically dwell because I return to this house each and every day. I eat here. I sleep here. I reside here and it is my earthly solace. It is likewise in the spiritual. I choose to reside in the LORD. He is my security and my high tower. Moment by moment I willingly choose to go to Him and dwell in His presence. Today, assess where you dwell. Be assured that your refuge is in the mighty hands of the LORD.
