We are saved by grace, not by our words or works
Scriptures Clarification Scripture
We have the presence, protection and power of God with us.
( Elohim Hebrew name for God) Genesis 2:4
Elohim is a name for God my
pastor uses quiet often.
Chapter 46 wouldn’t work w/anyone else!
Some things God is …
All Power God
God is Able
God is there in times of danger
God is our Safety net
With God ALL things wasn’t cheap. It came at a price. The price of His Son’s blood. The blood that was shed for our sins.
It is sad, but men still today run to false refuges.
God also pardons us, protects us and preserves us.
There is shelter in Christ. A Fort is not good unless it is built right. Build it on Jesus.
Isaiah 40:31 was mention. That is my favorite Bible verse.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
When we take refuge in God, He gives us supply & strength.
He is always with us.
He is abundantly available, our help in trouble, it is continuous. In the present state.
God is now here. Atheist will say God is no where, but God is everywhere!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, ( Ephesians 3:20)
I have a note here about 5,000 shoulder to shoulder which equals about 3 miles wide. (I honestly don’t recall why this was written down). I wrote these notes about a year ago.
God keeps his promise!
Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. ( Hebrews 2:18)
God aids in comfort. He can heal all the pain.
There is no person God cannot save.
We can pray anytime, anywhere. He knows before we pray. We don’t need our prayers launched to space to be heard. Just open up and speak, God can hear. He knows it actually before we pray or speak it.
Do not fear, God will work through you, turn to Him and you will get all the strength.
These are my notes from the morning sermon on March 18, 2012 at Piedmont Baptist Church by Pastor Bob Neal.
