Read Psalm 46:2, 3
Verse 2 – 3: Since God is our refuge and he is our strength, his presence remains with us in the tough times. We have no need to be afraid. Our confidence should be in God and God alone. If our confidence is in Him, then when we are faced with attacks from our enemies, accusers, or natural disasters we shall find our refuge and strength in God's presence.
Summary of Verses 2 – 3
Franklin Delano Roosevelt said in his inaugural speech, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Yet as Christians we can respond by saying we have no one and nothing to fear period. I John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love, perfect love casts out all fear.” Jesus Christ is our perfect love and in him there is no fear. Through his death, resurrection and ascension he has set us free from fear. We are no longer to have a paralyzing fear of anything that man; beast, nature or spiritual being can do to us.
