A Very Real Refuge!

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble! Psalm 46:1 NRSV

Reading that God is our refuge and strength is one thing. Believing it is another.

That’s why I like music. Music communicates the message of truth, and then it gives me a way of making that truth personal. It takes what I know, and writes it on my heart . That helps to turn what I know into what I believe!

There are few hymns that communicate the message that God is our refuge and strength like Martin Luther’s A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. The power of the text and the majestic melody can lift the spirit and inspire confidence even in the most trying times.

MP900427608[1]Today I encourage you to view this musical rendition of A Mighty Fortress by the Christian artist Steve Green. As he sings, I believe you will sense the power that these words hold for all who turn to  God for refuge and strength. To view the video, just click here.
