Praise Uplifts Our Hearts???  A Word from THE WORD!!!  #27

I simply want to share a bit of encouragement from God’s Word with you this morning, and I pray that it will lift your heart and mind on this mid-summer morning.  God knows my heart and HE knows yours, so whatever your need or mine, may we do the best thing that we can do when we’re down—look up and Praise The Lord!!!

God is our refuge

and strength,

a very present help

in trouble.

2 Therefore will not we fear,

though the earth

be removed,

and though the mountains

be carried into the midst of the sea;

3 Though the waters thereof

roar and be troubled,

though the mountains

shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4 There is a river,

the streams whereof

shall make glad the city of God,

the holy place of the tabernacles

of the most High.

5 God is in the midst of her;

she shall not be moved:

God shall help her,

and that right early.

6 The heathen 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,

what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9 He maketh wars to cease

unto the end of the earth;

he breaketh the bow,

and cutteth the spear in sunder;

he burneth the chariot

in the fire.

10 Be still,

and know

that I am God:

I will be exalted

among the heathen,

I will be exalted

in the earth.

11 The LORD of hosts

is with us;

the God of Jacob

is our refuge. Selah.”  Psalm 46:1-11

Let’s remember—let’s be still—let’s rejoice in our God!  HE IS in control!  Don’t give up, but rather run to The One who is able to deliver us in the storm, from it, through it, or whatever it takes to grow us In HIM!

The name of the LORD

is a strong tower:

the righteous runneth into it,

and is safe.”  Proverbs 18:10

For of him,

and through him,

and to him,

are all things:

to whom be glory for ever. Amen.”  Romans 11:36
