– World Day for Safety and Health at Work


Read Psalms 46:1-11
[1](To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.[2]Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;[3]Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.[4]There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.[5]God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.[6]The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.[7]The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.[8]Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.[9]He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.[10]Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.[11]The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

MEMORISE: He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire (Psalms 46:9)

The Psalmist understood what it meant to enjoy divine security, hence Psalms 46, projecting God’s protection and peace. Peace is not the absence of threats, but the calmness, despite the intensity of the trials. It is to have the peace of God and confidence that it is well, no matter the situation.
The kind of security and protection God provides His children is the kind that cannot be breached. No matter the tightness of any man-made security, there is always the possibility of someone trying to break in. We have seen situations where leaders of nations were assassinated amidst sophisticated security. How did Ehud kill the supposedly secure Eglon? (Jdg. 3:16ff) Even the most secured prison in the world can experience prison break. Only God’s security cannot be penetrated.
When Lucifer tried to tamper with God’s internal security in heaven, his rebellion was nipped in the bud. Right away, he was arrested and hauled down on earth (Isa. 14:12ff; Ezek. 28:1ff; Rev. 12:7ff). Psalms 46:9 unequivocally expresses God’s control over threatening situations: He has the power/authority to terminate such situations, and clearly does, as He puts to shame all weapons the enemies trust in (cf. Isa. 54:17). Only those who dwell ‘in the secret place of the Most High’ can enjoy such impeccable security ‘under the shadow of the Almighty’ (Psa. 91:1). You want to be fortified like Elisha was (2 Kgs. 6:8-23)? Run to Jesus, now. If you are not saved, you are not safe!

1. Lord, I entrust You with my life; fight my battles for me, and let me enjoy true peace in You
2. Lord, render every Sennacherib threatening the spread of Your gospel in this nation useless and impotent, in Jesus’ name.
3. Pray God to grant the immediate release of those in the net and nests of terrorists, kidnappers, ritual killers, etc., like He did Peter.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 1 Samuel 14 – 15 & Romans 3
