Advent Journey Day Two

Advent Journey Day Two:

Read Psalm 46, below, and notice the phrase that strikes a new chord of awareness within you.                                                                                             

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth giveaway and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah

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 the break of day.
Nations are in upraor, kingdoms fall;
He lifts His voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

Come and see the works of the Lord,
the desolation 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.

“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

The Lord Almight is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

A11397

One thought on “Advent Journey Day Two

  1. I have always loved the “Be still and know I am God” portion of this Psalm, but today I am seeing for the first time “Come and See” b/c it is the title of my concert on December 20th. I had no idea when I came up with that title that it was in my favorite scripture text. Interesting how the Spirit leads us…
