Pastor’s introduction was a very gripping story about four different soldiers from three different wars whose physical lives were spared by their pocket New Testament in their pocket over their heart. Two of them found that the last burn mark was located at Psalm 91:7.
These are definitely dark days. We need some bright spots. We need to be able to come to church and get some light.
1 Kings 8:10 – 12 – The cloud / thick darkness – God was insulating himself from man that is sinful.
2 Chronicles 5:11 – When the people are one and all the cylinders are hitting, wow what a service that can be!
Don’t dwell in the darkness too long. The darkness can trick you!
Luke 4:5 (Matt 4 – Companion vs) – Jesus tempted without sin – We can be tempted without sin.
The devil was trying to run interference with Jesus just like he tries to do with us.
The devil quotes the word of God. He knows exactly where Christians should be going for help, but he is twisting it. Memorize Psalm 91. Know where to go for help in time of need.
1) A PLACE
Get alone with God.
Have a strong devotional life.
Psalm 17:7-9, Acts 10
2) THE PESTILENCE
A plague, contagious infectious disease, corruption, moral disease.
4) A PROMISE
Psalm 91:14 – Deliverance in the day of darkness – Do you know God’s name?
Psalm 91:14-16 – God’s PS to us.
God wants us to have a personal relationship with him.
