Very Near

Did you know that Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of need”? Maybe you’ve read that verse to say “an ever-present help” but the Hebrew translation is indeed “very.”

It means exceedingly present, more and more present, super-duper present! It means, most accurately, especially present.

God is especially present with you in times of need. After this verse, we read this powerful line: “Therefore we will not fear.”

Don’t you love it? We don’t have to fear anything because God is especially present when we need Him. He is very, very near.
