God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable],
A very present and well-proved help in trouble.
This verse means a lot to me. God used this verse in my life in a powerful way.
When I first started living my life for the Lord, I often took a step backward into my old way of life. After that step I would reflect and wonder why I kept going back and forth. I was so frustrated by it!
Then when I read this verse, I realized that God is an ever-present help to me. So when I am tempted to take that step back in that very moment I can cry out to God for help. He will be there and He will help me. This realization helped me stay on the course God has for my life.
I am so thankful for how God uses His Word to help us.
Share a time that God's word came alive to you and helped you through a trial.
