God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.
In light of the recent tragedy in Haiti when walls of a nation come tumbling down, what can believers in the Lord Jesus Christ trust God for:
1. God offers us HELP!
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2This I declare of the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him.
2. God offers us HOPE!
The LORD is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The LORD protects me from danger— so why should I tremble? When evil people come to destroy me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will know no fear. Even if they attack me, I remain confident.
3. God tells us to HEED!
"Be still, and know that I am God!
