The Lord of Hosts Is With Us

God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
    though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;
    he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge.

-Psalm 46:1-3, 6-7, NRSV

Fear seems to be a constant companion after discovering infidelity. The “What ifs” easily can drive one insane with fear over what might happen or what might have already happened. This all goes back to a loss of safety following the soul rape–i.e. adultery.

As I walked through my healing up to the divorce and following, I found a popular song of much help. It reminded me of the truth expressed in the Psalm above: Our God is the “Lord of Hosts.”

Jesus is always with us (Matthew 28:20), and He commands these angel armies (I Peter 3:21-22). He is mighty and is our friend (John 15:14). So, you can dwell on those truths when Satan buffets you with lies and tries to steal your peace with fear.

Here’s the song:
