Psalms 46:11 (King James Version)

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

A. The LORD of Hosts is with us

"The Lord of hosts is with us;"

Hosts or "tsaba tsebaah" in Hebrew meaning: a mass of persons organized for war, a campaign: hardship or worship, company, soldiers, waiting upon, warfare.

The LORD of HOSTS is often used in battle or war where the LORD will fight for His people for the battle is the LORD's and we don't have to fight but just stand still in His Presence.

1 Samuel 17:47 (Amplified Bible)

And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.

Exodus 14:13 (Amplified Bible)

Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again.

Job 37:14 (Amplified Bible)

Hear this, O Job; stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.

The LORD OF HOSTS simply means the GOD of WAR is with us always ready to fight the battles in life and always bringing us into victory.

1 Corinthians 15:57 (Amplified Bible)

But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our battles in life here on earth is always a choice, it's either hardship or worship, I'll go for worship. In times of hardship, I won't be affected because I will worship.

For example, souls are made for worship of the LORD and bringing them to the LORD is worship itself.

2 Timothy 4:5 (Amplified Bible)

As for you, be calm and cool and steady, accept and suffer unflinchingly every hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fully perform all the duties of your ministry.

Romans 12:1 (Amplified Bible)

I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.

The LORD SHEBAOTH is with me always, He will fight the battles in life, it's His battle, all I do is stand still and watch Him win left and right, and I get to go with Him in the parade of victories, winning souls left and right for His Glory.

B. The GOD of Jacob is our refuge

"the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!"

While GOD, the LORD SHEBAOTH is winning battles and wars left and right for our victories, He also is protecting us Himself by being a refuge or fortress around us.

Jeremiah 15:20-21 (Amplified Bible)

And I will make you to this people a fortified, bronze wall; they will fight against you, but they will not prevail over you, for I am with you to save and deliver you, says the Lord.

And I will deliver you out of the hands of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the palms of the terrible and ruthless tyrants.

Isaiah 54:17 (Amplified Bible)

But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.
