Having worked out with the SnakePit pax before, YHC knew these guys were animals. In trying to mix things up a bit for the SnakePitters, YHC got a few funny looks though and lots of Wedgie chatter when I called out the names of some of the exercises. However, the pax didn’t disappoint and even pushed YHC to almost spilling merlot in the COT. I think Wedgie really wanted to do more Ascending Testicles.

Let me give you three very practical thoughts regarding this matter of God’s strength through stress, as found in Psalm 46.
First, His strength is immediately available. Our trials are not superficial or irrelevant. They are vehicles of grace that God uses to bring us growth. Superficial problems call for superficial solutions. But real life isn’t like that; its headaches and stresses go deeper, right down to the bone. They touch the nerve areas of our security. But God says He is a present help in trouble. He is immediately available. Do you realize that wherever you travel, whatever the time of day, you can call and He will answer? He’s a very present and immediate help.
The second thing I observe about God’s power in this psalm is that it is overpowering! It’s a tent that can stretch over any stress—in fact it’s tailor-made for stress. Furthermore, His power is not dependent on our help. You’re weak, remember? Have you felt that weakness lately? Maybe it’s time to say, “Lord, I love You. Through Your strength I will not be moved. I will stop running, stop striving. I will not fear. I will hold on to You. I will count on You to build that tent around me and protect me from the blast.
God says, “Cease striving, and know that I am God.”
For the choir director: A song of the descendants of Korah, to be sung by soprano voices.*
1 God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
2 So we will not fear when earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
3 Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!
4 A river brings joy to the city of our God,
the sacred home of the Most High.
5 God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed.
From the very break of day, God will protect it.
6 The nations are in chaos,
and their kingdoms crumble!
God’s voice thunders,
and the earth melts!
7 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;
the God of Israel* is our fortress.
8 Come, see the glorious works of the Lord:
See how he brings destruction upon the world.
9 He causes wars to end throughout the earth.
He breaks the bow and snaps the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”
11 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;
the God of Israel is our fortress.
