Catechesis Notes for the Week — Psalm 46: A Prayer of Reliance upon Our Mighty Fortress—Martin Luther based his hymn, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” upon Psalm 46. Luther understood rightly that the psalms are always about Christ, who He is, and what He does for us. So when we speak about God being our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, we are confessing this because Jesus has died for our sins and conquered Satan and death for us.  We will not fear precisely because if Christ is on our side, and He is, there is NO enemy that can possibly harm or destroy us.  This is the confidence upon which Psalm 46 is based.  The image of the River of Life and the calm serenity of the city of God reminds us of the hope that we have as Christians in eternal life with Christ in which no enemy will ever touch us.  Psalm 46 calls us to the quiet confidence of faith in Christ our Savior: “Be still, and know that I am God…the Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.” CP190818
