God Our Fortress and Refuge

Psalm 46 is the well-known basis for Martin Luther’s great hymn, A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.  The psalm does celebrate God our fortress.  The psalm also makes clear that God is near to us, with us, our refuge. Both ideas – fortress and refuge – go together to paint a beautiful picture of how God takes care of His people.  As a fortress, He keeps us safe from our enemies, Himself being a wall of defense to keep them away and keep us safe.  As a refuge with us, He provides for our needs, and feeds us, so that the enemy’s siege tactics cannot starve us out.

Another week of technical problems, this time laptop instead of mic battery, so not even an outline available.  We hope the summary above is helpful.
