Psalm 46

A song of trust and hope in God’s certain victories.

1–3 Confession of trust in God
4–7 Description of God’s city
8–11 God’s victories over pagan nations

  • This psalm was the basis for Martin Luther’s hymn, “A Mighty Fortress is Our God.”
  • Verses 1–3 are great truths to meditate on. As you do so, consider the situations in your life and make application.
  • Verses 8–10 aren’t talking about merely “peace on earth”—how did and will God make “wars to cease…”?
