1. God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
  2. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed,
    And though the mountains be carried into the [b]midst of the sea;
  3. Though its waters roar and be troubled,
    Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

                                                                                   Psalm 46:1-3

What can offer us more hope and encouragement than God’s Word?

The verses above from Psalm 46 are especially meaningful with all that is going on in our country and our world right now.

Have you noticed there is always something to cause fear? From Y2K and the 9/11 terrorist attacks, to diseases like anthrax, Ebola, SARS and now COVID-19.

We need to take our eyes off whatever is causing fear and focus on the Lord. He is our refuge and strength no matter what our “trouble” might be.

Adrian Rogers liked to say:

“There are three kinds of people in this world: those who are afraid, those who don’t know enough to be afraid and those who know their Bible.”

Let’s be those who know their Bible. And let’s do all we can to help others know Christ and the Word of God.

Join us this Sunday as we look at the next message in the series, ‘The Grip of Grace, from the book of Galatians.  This weeks message is titled, ‘Freedom!’.

In Christ alone,

Pastor Bill
