Scriptures: Psalm 121, 115:3, 18:30, Jeremiah 32:17, Proverbs 3:25-26
One thing that is common to every person and every institution on earth is that we have problems. The home faces problems. The church has problems. Our government has problems. Our nation has deep problems. We think if we have a great economy it will solve all of our problems, but it won't. If we can put a conservative President and a conservative Congress in office we will solve all of our problems, but it won't. Too often the reason why people never solve their problems is because they look to the wrong place for solutions.
If you are feeling helpless and need help or you are feeling hopeless and need hope, in this psalm three pillars upon which we can build the foundation of our life that will stand against any storm.
"God always stands in our lives at our most vulnerable point. The Lord always puts His strength at our greatest point of weakness. He takes up a position so He can defend us no matter where an attack may come from. You may not see it, but God is a shield to us every time we walk outside of our door." --Dr. Merritt
