God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. Psalm 46:1-2

This is drawing our attention to the Covenant keeping God. Even when our reality seems to be shattering around us, we can stand on His promises and come out on top, without the smell of smoke on us, etc. If we won't turn loose of the Word and become offended, touchy, fretful, resentful, or self-centered and self-absorbed, then He'll start restoring it faster than the circumstances of this world or the devil can try to steal it from us.  It just depends on how deep your foundation is upon the Word of God, and if your roots have become skillful enough in advance at drawing upon the nuturing waters from the throne of God as to whether or not you'll have to walk it out by faith for very long, or whether you'll see sudden and immediate manifestations of the salvation of the Lord.

The language of Psalm 46 easily belongs to the Hosea 2:18 Covenant since several passages verify that the cessation of violence in the earth is a promise made, (almost uniquely,) to the animals. However, because Isaiah 54:9-10 says this Covenant of Peace He's sworn is an amending of the Constitution He swore to Noah, his 3 sons, their wives, the animals, and all of their descendants, then we may freely expect that the trembling at His goodness and prosperity mentioned in Jeremiah 33:9 is explained, partially, by this and by Ezekiel 38:19-20 to include mankind in this shaking at His goodness and prosperity during the war of the latter years between a fallen world and the exceeding riches of His grace.

Verse 4 of Psalm 46 says: There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. Verse 5 is talking about God, the Holy Spirit.

His idea of being our refuge, strength, and very present help in a time of trouble, whether we're Animals or Mankind, is an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon absolutely all flesh!

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2

 

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
