Psalm 46, There Is A River

Updated: Feb 24, 2022

God's life, which flows to us in the form of a river, is not a little, trickling stream, but rather a strong, rushing torrent of life. Psalm 46, There Is A River lyrics and chords.

God's life, which flows to us in the form of a river, is not a little, trickling stream, but rather a strong, rushing torrent of life. As described in the book of Revelation, the river flows directly from God's throne, directly from God's presence (Rev. 22:1-2; also Ezek. 47:1-12). In the book of Revelation, the river of life signifies God's life-giving presence. God never abandons us; he is always present with us. The rest of Psalm 46:4-5 says something quite similar to this. God, the Most High, honors his home place (his people) by declaring it sacred. God is with his people at all times. God has promised that the city (God's people) would never be rocked, disturbed, or thrown off because God "will assist her with his face." God's personal presence will assist her in her endeavors.

What Is Psalms 46 Talking About?

This passage indicates the presence of a stream that benefits Jerusalem, the city of God. Spiritually, Scripture often talks of this as the dwelling place of the Most High God (Psalm 9:11; 132:13; Joel 3:17; Zechariah 8:3). (Psalm 9:11; 132:13; Joel 3:17; Zechariah 8:3). Streams and rivers are classic emblems of abundance: a source which continually pours. The imagery here recalls that of the river which Ezekiel 47 portrays, bursting forth from the temple in the millennium when Christ dominates the planet. Revelation 22:1–2 portrays a "river of the water of life" flowing in the New Jerusalem.

Some believe this psalm was authored to praise God's deliverance of Israel from the Assyrians in the days of King Hezekiah. If so, the allusion to water may have a twofold meaning. Hezekiah had built an underground canal that connected the Spring of Gihon in Kidron with the Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem (2 Kings 20:20; 2 Chronicles 32:30). (2 Kings 20:20; 2 Chronicles 32:30). The water may roar and foam, much as the Assyrians might rattle their swords and spears. Even yet, the water supply in Jerusalem remained tranquil and safe, just as God was solidly established in Jerusalem, His sacred mountain.

God's life, which flows through us like a river, is not a little, trickling stream but a swift, rushing torrent. The river flows from God's throne, from God's presence, according to the book of Revelation (Rev. 22:1-2; also Ezek. 47:1-12). In Revelation, the river of life symbolizes God's life-giving presence. God never abandons us; He is always present with us. The remainder of Psalm 46:4-5 has a similar sentiment. God, the Highest, consecrates his abode (his people). God is present among his people. Because God "will assist her with his face," the city (God's people) will never be rocked, disturbed, or thrown off. God will assist her personally.
