Tuesday, 24th March 2020: God is with us

Son of God Psalm 46 Trust Refuge Worrying God

Reading : Some verses from Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth should change,
Though the mountains shake…..

Be still, and know that I am God!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.

(from New Revised Standard Version)


God has not promised us an easy life, or peace, or prosperity, but He does say that He is with us – He is with us in the good times and the bad, when life is easy, or when the corona virus attacks our world. Like a parent He does not always protect us, after all we make our own mistakes, but He understands our fears and worries.

As a parent He saw His son crucified - paying the debt for our sin, and He holds out his hands in love welcoming us to Him.


Father God,
still our fears,
calm our nerves,
and help us to remember
the fragile and vulnerable in our society,
as we cope with whatever happens
in the weeks and months ahead.
