“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” - Psalm 46:1
Psychologist Abraham Maslow introduced the idea of a hierarchy of needs necessary for human growth: physical safety, belonging, esteem, and self-actualization. The need for safety stands out in today’s world. The news can be depressing as it broadcasts tragedy, fear, and uncertainty. Yet we have other news that is broadcast from Heaven in Psalm 46: Our Lord is a safe and secure place to take refuge! He carries us when we are too weak to walk and is ever mindful that we are made of dust. Reach out to the Lord today. He wants to help!
