Day 2 | Strong and Patient God

This is a declaration of trust based on Psalm 46. Here, the psalmist confesses his utter dependence on God no matter what the situation. This psalm is simultaneously an invitation to be still before God because of his faithfulness and strength.

Strong and patient God 
Our refuge when the tempests howl Our shelter when the winds roar 
You are our ever-present help 
Therefore, we will not fear 
Though the earth gives way 
Though the mountains be moved into the sea We will not be afraid 
Though empires rise and fall 
Though temporal comforts fade and wane We will not be afraid 
Though accusation and shame seek to drown us Though regret and blame breathe out lies We will not be afraid 
We will not fear 
Because you are our strong fortress 
Because your voice stills the raging seas Because you dwell in our midst 
The Lord of hosts is with us 
The God of Jacob is his name 
Come, behold the works of the Lord Come, witness his wisdom  
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear He calms the anxious and lifts up the fallen He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth He says to all his children: 
Be still and know that I am God 
I will be exalted among the nations 
I will be exalted in the earth 
I will never leave you or forsake you 
I am your protection 
You strong and patient God
