Wednesday night teaching series from Pastor Tim
When life takes an unexpected turn where do you go to find help? When the woes of family, marriage, children, friends, enemies, finances and life in general pound at your hearts door where do you go? Is there a place where you and I can run to in troubled times? Is there a storm shelter that will hold and protect us?
Nahum 1:7 says that “The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.” Psalm 18:2 tells us that “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
What is a “stronghold”? It is a fortified place or a fortress. It’s a place of survival or refuge.
God is our stronghold! He is that place of shelter and rest. He is our city of refuge and survival. He is our protector! He is our God!
God is our strength and He is our stronghold!
As Christians we are assured that living the Christ-like life will bring about troubling times. There is no exemption status for hurting and suffering in this life. God has provided for each of us as His children a rock that we can run to! When we run to our Protector as we face the storms of life, He will not only help us to endure but He will cause us to flourish!
On Wednesday evenings from now until Thanksgiving, Pastor Tim will be sharing a series of teachings built around this theme – The Lord – Our Strength | Our Stronghold…
