God our Refuge

mountains

Psalm 46:1
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

The one true God is our refuge; our shelter from whatever storm we experience. He is our place of safety from any danger. He is mightier than all other forces that come against us. He is always available, no matter what trouble or distress we face.
When David wrote the Psalms, he intended them to be sung. Maybe he knew we remember things better if there is music attached to the words.

Modern-day advertisers know this. Think of all the TV ads connected to a song. Example: “Plop, plop, fizz, fizz. Oh what a relief it is.” Alka-Seltzer, right? I’m sure you can think of more.

You might want to try this method of memorization. It might come in handy when you need a quick scripture to do battle with the enemy of your soul.

Lord Jesus, thank You for your powerful word
You provided for us.
May we hide it in our hearts
that we may have it ever ready
when a need arises.
