Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/20/11

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
   a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name trust in you,
   for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.”
  (Psalm 9:9-10)

Whatever comes against us, the Lord is greater. We hear of earthquakes and floods and desolation; we hear of wars and rumors of war, clash of nations, spreading across the globe like fire in grass. Our hearts might grow heavy within us, for yesterday left destruction and tomorrow is uncertain, yet in times of trouble we have one whom we can trust, for the Lord is with us, the Rock of Ages is there for us, and He never leaves us or forsakes us. We can trust in Him and call upon His name, for His name is the name above all names, and in His name we can trust. Seek Him and call upon His name, for He is faithful and true. He will not forsake those who belong to Him.

May the Lord be your refuge and your strength as you seek His face this day and every day.
