The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. —Psalm 46:7
At the end of Psalm 46, we find a refrain— one that’s repeated twice. It’s a response to the wonderful promises of God as our refuge and strength that we’ve been given earlier in the psalm. Therefore those who have cried out to the Lord for help, who have experienced His deliverance by faith, triumphantly and joyfully sing out, “The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
There may be a gazillion hosts against you. Your world or the whole world may be in a state of upheaval, but we don’t have to fear them because the sovereign Lord of hosts is on our side. And as Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
God is with us; He is with you. He has promised to never leave you or forsake you (Deut. 31:6). You may flee to Him and find in Him a refuge, a strong and mighty fortress for your soul—now and for all eternity.
