Today is Thursday, July 21st, 2022; Karen's Korner #4709

Today's 'korner' is from Psalm 46 in the Living Bible translation. It was printed in the 1970s. The application portion was printed in the mid 1980s. It appears that not much has changed in our world in that time.

"God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up, and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble!"

~ Psalm 46: 1 - 3 LAB

Bible Commentary:  "The fear of mountains or cities suddenly crumbling into the sea by a nuclear blast haunts many people today. But the psalmist says that even if the world ends, 'We need not fear!' Even in the face of utter destruction, he expressed a quiet confidence in God's ability to save him. It seems impossible to face the end of the world without fear, but the Bible is clear---God is our refuge even in the face of total destruction. He is not merely a temporary retreat; he is our eternal refuge and can provide strength even in the face of global destruction."
