Even though the earth is in peril and the nations of this world tremble with the pandemic and uncertainties, our declaration should be, "I will NOT fear because my God loves me and He is my refuge & strength. He has proven to be a present help when I'm in trouble so all shall be well."
God's Word gives us the approach that we should adopt when facing any battle or distress. We live in a day of trouble and global crisis but God's Word gives hope and encouragement which keeps us from panic and fear.
David has a personal relationship with God, which is the basic foundation for hope.
OUR CONFIDENCE IN THE PERSON OF THE LORD PROVIDES HOPE.
As Light, God delivers His people from Darkness.
As Salvation God delivers His people from Damnation.
As Strength God delivers His people from Defeat
OUR COMMITMENT TO THE LORD PROVIDES HOPE
David wants to spend his entire life in the very presence of the Lord. This must be our desire as well.
We need that same passion to abide and live in the presence of Almighty God.
There is no place greater to be than in the presence of God.
OUR COMFORT IN THE LORD PROVIDES HOPE
God has a sheltered in place for us.
The Lord will hide us His pavilion.
THERE IS A SECRET PLACE IN GOD, THAT GIVES US HOPE IN THE MIDST OF CRISIS!
