God is Our Refuge 神是我們的避難所

Ps. 46:1, 10

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

10 Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations.

The Valentine’s Day of 2021 was a memorable day for us. It kicked off the week with piles of snows and followed with freezing, snowing, out of power, etc. It was a tough week. Like many of you, our family also lost power, Internet and heat during the storm. We got about 30 minutes of power every 8 hours.

We can’t do much about it when the natural disaster comes. Yes, we can turn on the faucets to let it run, but that doesn’t guarantee no frozen pipes. We have heating units, but only if you have electricity. You have over a month’s worth of food stored, but only if your fridge still operates and your stove still works. There is no guarantee of safety during the storm. In Psalm 46:1, David told us God is our refuge and strength. And then in verse 10, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

Many members told me they prayed more during that week than any week in the past ten years. Some mentioned that they got closer to God. A brother confessed to me that he thought he was self-sufficient in the past and didn’t really need God. He relied on his degree, job, money, power, or anything - you name it. But no, none of those things can help him during the storm.

This storm didn’t destroy our faith. If it did, it would just show that our faith was very weak in the beginning anyway. The storm actually revealed our spiritual condition.

Dear brothers and sisters, no matter you are weak or strong, let’s all get closer to the Lord. He is our refuge and strength. We don’t know what is going to happen, but we know that God will rescue us from the evil one.



10你們要休息,要知道我是 神!我必在外邦中被尊崇,在遍地上也被尊崇。


當自然災害來襲時,我們完全無能為力。是的,我們可以打開水龍頭滴水,但不一定保證水管不結冰。我們有暖氣設備,但只在有電力的情況下才能運轉。我們儲存了一個多月的食物,但前提是冰箱仍在運轉與電爐仍能運作。暴風雪期間無法保證安全。在詩篇46:1 大衛告訴我們:「上帝是我們的避難所和力量。」然後在第10節中說:「要休息,要知道我是神。」
