Faith’s Checkbook

Immediately Present
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
A help that is not present when we need it is of small value. The anchor left at home is of no use to the seaman in the hour of storm; the money he used to have is of no worth to the debtor
when a writ is out against him. Very few earthly helps could be called “very present”: they are usually
far in the seeking, far in the using, and farther still when once used. But as for the Lord our God, He is
present when we seek Him, present when we need Him, and present when we have already enjoyed
His aid.
He is more than “present,” He is very present. More present than the nearest friend can be, for He is
in us in our trouble; more present than we are to ourselves, for sometimes we lack the presence of mind.
He is always present, effectually, sympathetically present, and altogether present. He is present

now if this is a gloomy season. Let us rest ourselves upon Him. He is our refuge, let us hide in Him;
He is our strength, let us array ourselves with Him; He is our help, let us lean upon Him; He is our
very present help, let us repose in Him now. We need not have a moment’s care or an instant’s fear.
“The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.”
