In this Psalm there is an intense picture, “Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling” (Psalm 46: 2-3).
“The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts” (6).
He is our shelter. He is our protector. The whole earth may be trembling, falling apart around us, but he is our stability.
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
