Maximizing everyday moments to glorify God

Never Forget

Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,

an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam

and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy place where the Most High dwells.

5 God is within her, she will not fall;

God will help her at break of day.

6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;

he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The LORD Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come and see what the LORD has done,

the desolations he has brought on the earth.

9 He makes wars cease

to the ends of the earth.

He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;

he burns the shields[d] with fire.

10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The LORD Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.

As we reflect on the events of 9/11, let us never forget that God is above all the chaos, confusion and pain of this world. Yes, evil exists and bad things happen in our world. But, God has overcome and is with us in the middle of everything. He is our refuge and strength when we don’t know where to turn. He waits for us to invite Him into our circumstances.


In our church service today, we spent time reflecting and remembering. But we also spent time recognizing that out of sadness and trouble, God prevails and God brings new life. He can restore from the ashes of ruin. He can fill the hole in our hearts that nothing else we try to fill it with will.


Life will go on. What will you do to continue to honor their memories? What will you let God do in your heart?
