Pastor’s Sermon was titled: He's Still God!
He noted that the God we serve is still God.
He is Our Protector. He was with Daniel and the other Jews even when they were exiled to Babylon. He is still with us today no matter what we may go through. "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Lord." Psalm 91:1. When things get bad run to God. He covers us in times of distress. He is our refuge and fortress. Psalm 91:2. He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. Psalm 91:3. He is our ever present help in trouble...Psalm 46:1-3.
He is Our Provider. Most cities were built near rivers for a water source. But Jerusalem had no river. There was a spring above the city and King Hezekiah's built a huge water tunnel to supply water in the event of any siege. God provides a river of living water for His people. Psalm 46:4; John 4:14; John 7:38-39 and Jeremiah 17:13. Our source of provision is not through our own smarts, but from Him – especially if you recognize that any smarts you may have were a gift from Him in the first place.
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19.
God is The Proven One.
He proved himself to the Israelites time and time again as He brought the people out of Egypt to the Promised Land. Exodus 33; Deuteronomy 8:2; 2 Chronicles 20:6; Psalm 25: 5-8 and Psalm 46:8-9, 10-11. "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13. We should be ready to do what He says when He directs and then trust Him as He is in control and holds the world in His hands.
Once again I started with one song but ended up with another.

Psalm 25:5-6 NIV
