God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalms 46:1 )

One of the reasons you see so many basic doctrinal messages on this website is because it shows us who Jesus Christ is in truth. As we study the word of God our faith will be strengthened because we know Him for who He truly is, and not merely as a name on a piece of paper. If I know that the Lord is the creator of all things then that brings great comfort to my heart. The Lord is in total control of everything, although it may not seem that way at times. Sometimes I find myself saying inwardly “Lord can’t you see what is happening here?” but then I catch myself and realize how foolish it is to think that way. The Lord is fully aware of the most intimate details of our lives and we must not forget that He is on our side. God is the one who will give us the strength to carry on in this “…present evil world …” (Galatians 1:4) and He wants to be the refuge for our souls in the time of trouble also.

In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. (Psalms 62:7-8)

The one lesson that the Lord is teaching every single one of us, is to trust in HIM at ALL times. It is a good thing to open up our hearts before Him, whether it be in private or as we go about our daily duties. God is a good listener and He desires that we open up our hearts before Him in truth.
