Welcome to the recording from today’s service, in which we heard a lovely testimony from Rosalee and then the Word from Psalm 46, the victory of God and His relationship with His people on an individual basis. Before that audio is a worship song from Matt Redman, his interpretation of the classic hymn, Here is Love Vast as the Ocean.
Here is today’s message on Psalm 46:
God is our refuge and strength, a[a] very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the [b]midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the [c]tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be [d]moved;
God shall help her, just [e]at the break of dawn.
6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, who has made desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
