Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


A Present Help
by Charles R. Swindoll

The LORD of hosts is with us; 
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
Psalm 46:7

We deny it. We fake it. We mask it. We try to ignore it. But the truth stubbornly persists—we are weak creatures! 

Being sinful, we fail. Being prone to sickness, we hurt. Being mortal, we ultimately die. Pressure wears on us. Anxiety gives us ulcers. People intimidate us. Criticism offends us. Disease scares us. Death haunts us. . . .

How can we continue to grow in this bag of bones, covered with weaknesses too numerous to mention? 

We need a big dose of Psalm 46: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." 

What hope for those struggling through the grind of personal weaknesses!
