Psa. 46:-1-3 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.
God is an “ever present” help. He is nearer to us than the trouble is, and the trial may not be about us at all. In the gristmill of God’s sovereignty he has chosen us to feel the clip of devil’s hooves for a time.
What if the whole ugly crisis is part of God’s intricate plan to bring a soul to Christ?
Out of sight, in a dimension unaccounted for, is God preparing circumstances in which we play a small part–in saving a soul from eternal darkness?
After all is said and done, isn’t it worth the pain?
