Help Is on the Way

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
                  —Psalm 46:1

When the San Jose gold and copper mine in Chile collapsed on August 5, 2010, thirty-three miners were trapped 2,300 feet underground, seemingly doomed to slow death.

But on October 13, sixty-nine days after the collapse, the miners received word that the rescue team had discovered where they were, and that help was on the way.

To Christians in Pergamum, the Lord said, “I know where you live—in your city—where Satan lives.” Are you perplexed about events that cause you to feel like you’re living in that city?

God knows where you are and what you’re facing. Hang tough. Help is on the way. “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).

God is your shelter in the storm.
