God is our refuge and strength

God is our refuge and strength

By Rev. Dr. Tissa Weerasingha

Dearly Beloved Friends,
 
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

“God is in the midst of her (the Church, the city of God), she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn – Psalm 46 (The Bible)”

Wherever we may gather together, let us pray for our beloved Sri Lanka and for the dear suffering ones who are facing unbearable loss of their loved ones and friends at this time. The Christian community in our land is facing stress, anxiety, fear and hurt. But, blessed be Our Risen Lord, Who in the face of tribulation and hardship has given us the assurance of His presence. Sometimes, we may not FEEL His Presence, but the FACT is, He is with us, as the Lord Jesus said, to the “end of the age”.
