An Ever-Present Help in Trouble

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.
Dear Father, I praise the Lord Jesus Christ, our Ever-Present Help in Trouble. I exalt Him that He has always had all power, all knowledge, all wisdom, all love, all mercy, all faithfulness and all compassion. In my mind’s eye, I see Him speaking the heavens and the earth into existence; I see Him holding the world in His hands now and forevermore; I see Him enduring the testing of Satan in the wilderness, commanding wind and waves to be calm, and calling Lazarus from the tomb; I see Him revealing the ancient mysteries about the Godhead and sacrificing His life on the cross; I see Him coming out of the grave, ascending to sit at Your right hand and judge the earth; and, I see Him returning to earth to establish His eternal kingdom. Hallelujah! All things are possible for Him! Even though “the earth may one day give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,” because of all Jesus is, I am confident that He knows what I need before I ask for help, and that He will continually be present as my refuge and strength, regardless of the circumstances. I pray You will help me and many, many other believers give ourselves totally to our Ever-Present Help in Trouble, trust Him more and more, and cast all our fears on Him. I place all these things before You in the name of our Savior. Amen.
