Psalm 46 ESV

       God is our refuge and strength,
       a very present (well proved) help
       in trouble.
       2 Therefore we will not fear
       though the earth gives way, 
        though the mountains be
        moved into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at
its swelling. Selah
(Sounds like what happened in the flood.)
4 There is a river whose streams
make glad the city of God,  the
holy habitation of the Most High.

5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;  God will help her when morning dawns.

(A place of total safety!)

6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come, behold the works of
the Lord, how he has brought desolations on the earth.

(God is in control. Sin will be destroyed.  But know this, we who believe and trust in God dwell in the city of God)


9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire.

10 “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 of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

Matthew 10:28  (ESV)

28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Mankind may threaten out physical bodies, but God alone is in charge of our whole man.
