Ps.46:5 – God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
This is an amazing prophetic word about the church and a New Testament believer. David said that the Lord was in the midst of the city of God. The city of God speaks to us about God’s people. Today God is in our midst. He is with us and He is in us. David is describing the Lord’s help in times of trouble. He helps us intimately in us and through us. He is actually with us in our troubles; our answer is in our midst. Paul said it like this in Romans 8:35 – “Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or trouble, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?” Nothing can get between us and the Lord, He goes with us into every battle that we fight. Here is how Spurgeon describes this passage.
“God is in the midst of her. His help is therefore sure and near. Is she besieged, then he is himself besieged within her, and we may be certain that he will break forth upon his adversaries. How near is the Lord to the distresses of his saints, since he sojourns in their midst! Let us take heed that we do not grieve him; let us have such respect to him as Moses had when he felt the sand of Horeb’s desert to be holy, and put off his shoes from off his feet when the Lord spake from the burning bush. She shall not be moved. How can she be moved unless her enemies move her Lord also? His presence renders all hope of capturing and demolishing the city utterly ridiculous. The Lord is in the vessel, and she cannot, therefore, be wrecked.”
It seems like we are always facing bigger and bigger challenges in life. The good news is that whether it is Covid, financial distress, family challenges, or hurricanes; the Lord is in our midst. Paul spoke about the power of God inside of us and our total victory in Rom. 8:38,39 – “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So are you convinced? Christ in your midst guarantees your ultimate victory.
