Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/22/16

This week’s scripture is from 1 Samuel:

“…there is no Rock like our God.”    (1 Sam. 2:2b)

Montana de Oro Feb 2008 054We often struggle when the storms of life break over us. When hardship or illness or mishaps drive us down it can be hard to stand against the onslaught of troubles and rise above them. We often become battered or even broken by the pounding and fury of the storm, and may despair or lose hope. Yet none of these things are greater than our God, for He is our Rock and our salvation. Let us run to the Rock and find refuge from our troubles and shelter from the storm, for the storms that would batter us and the waves that would drown us break against the Rock, and the winds of adversity cannot move Him. Let us then hide ourselves in the cleft of the Rock where we will be safe and find peace as the storm passes by.

May the Lord bless you to hide yourself in Him and in His love.
