Our conversation moved on to the words in that verse which has been so precious to us across many years - the words refuge, strength and help and how the verse would sound if we emphasised the full meaning of those words. This is what we came up with:-
God is our refuge, hideaway, place of safety, safe haven, shelter, protection, security, retreat, hiding place, place of safe keeping, place of peace, our place where we are free from danger and our strength, stability, power, our source, our constant robust God, solid ground, our might, our energy; an ever-present help, aid, assistance, the leg up we need, our rescuer, our Saviour, our solution, comfort, support, advisor, encouragement and guidance in trouble.
Be encouraged today that your God is an ever-present totally constant, consistent, always there kind of a God - He is there in emergencies but He is also there for the every day!!!! Hallelujah!
