Reflections

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me.
For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
I will cry out to God most high, To God who performs all things for me.
He shall send from heaven and save me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up.

Psalm 57: 1-3

 

The Lord is good,A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.

Nahum 1: 7

 

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not;
They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘Therefore I hope in Him.’

Lamentations 3: 22-24

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.

Psalm 34: 7-9

 

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell.
Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident.
One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life;
To behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.
For in the time of trouble, He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.

Psalm 27: 1-5

Psalm 46 vs 1-11

For the director of music.
Of the Sons of Korah.
According to alamoth.
A song.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’
The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
