God: Our Refuge and Strength
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging."1 "For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings."2
The online video, "The Cougar vs. Bear," a film by Jean-Jacques Annaud, is a powerful and moving illustration of how God knows when his children are in need and is an ever-present help in time of trouble ... and of how God takes care of his children when we daily commit and trust our life to him.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank you that you always hear the cry of your children, and are always an 'ever-present help in trouble.' Again today I commit and trust my life and way to you. Please help me never to stray from you and thereby distance myself from your help and protection when needed. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
