“The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress” (Psalm 46:7, ESV). As with Psalm 42:5, we have in Psalm 46:7 a passage that stands out as the theme of the psalm due to its exact repetition at the end (v.11). This couplet expresses, with potent parallelism, the security that God’s people find in Him. The presence and stability of God leads up to this verse (vv.4-6), and the absolute sovereignty of God carries the psalm to its conclusion (vv.8-10). An invincible warrior, an unbreakable stronghold, God is the strength of His people.
The Lord is the Almighty; in Him we have nothing to fear. Notice, in this verse, the emphasis on God’s presence and protection. If you make the Lord your trust, you can stand against whatever this life may bring. No power can rival the Lord of hosts; no danger can harm those He shelters.
