Praise God Because He is a Refuge
Because God provides abundant help in tight places with full authority (Ps. 45), you don't have to fear. This changeable world is full of problems, but through the Holy Spirit dwelling in your heart, you have a place of refuge and strength (Ps. 46:1-5).
Even as the world falls apart and war moves across the earth, God remains your stronghold. God is so powerful that He conquers armies and makes war cease (Ps. 46:6-9).
In response to God's mighty works, relax and exalt in Him knowing He has full control (Ps. 46:10-11).
Praise God Because He is King
Since God is King over the earth and subdues people under your feet, you can be full of joy instead of fear. Because God reigns over the nations and sits on His holy throne, sing praise and lift up your mighty King (Ps. 47:1-9).
Praise God Because He is Beautiful
The city of Zion where God dwells is beautiful in elevation. People respond differently when they see or hear the great King. Some are joyful if they see Him as a stronghold. Others panic or experience anguish when their pet projects or activities are destroyed by Him (Ps. 48:1-7).
God's attributes--eternal, lovingkindness, righteousness and holiness--are beautiful and must be communicated to the next generation so He can guide them through their lives (Ps. 48:8-14).
Are you fearful because you feel that you have lost control? If so, realize that Christ is King, not you! Submit yourself to Him and praise God for His beautiful attributes. Let Christ guide you through life instead of relying on your human understanding.
