This Psalm is a powerful reminder that no matter what goes on in the world, God is our refuge and strength. Our children can rest assured that they are in God’s hands and they need not fear.
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. (vs. 1-2)
As we continue to share the Psalms with our children, we will leave lasting impression on their hearts. And one day, hopefully when they need it most, they will be reminded of these beautiful truths to lead and guide them.
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. (Psalm 46:10-11)
