Psalm 46 ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%2046%20&version=NKJV )
According to Psalm 46, there are external and internal provisions from the Lord in times of disaster, for God is both our refuge and strength .

The external provision of His grace is seen in the word refuge . A person being chased might run toward a fortress and race across the mote as the drawbridge is being raised. He’ll find himself enclosed within the walls of safety. As Martin Luther said, “A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing!”
The internal provision is the strength God gives. According to Psalm 46:1, the same God who is our refuge on the outside is our strength on the inside. I wonder if you’ve discovered the “strength” verses of the Bible. There’s no room to list them here, but sometime when you feel worried or weary look up the references to strength in the Bible. The Book of Isaiah says God renews our strength (Isaiah 40:31), and Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
Both within and around you, God is your refuge and strength.
If He is our refuge and strength … then we shall never fear under any circumstances, not even though the earth be removed.
