TOPIC: HELP IN TROUBLE
TEXT: PS: 46
Golden Verse: “God is our refuge and strength an ever- present helps in trouble” Ps 46: 1
The Psalmist reminds us this morning that God is very present when we need Him Most. God is an infinite Spirit that fills all places excluding no place. Unlike God, Satan needs to travel to get somewhere. But God is everywhere without division, multiplication, addition or subtraction. God never needs to move to get to a place. Every place is immediately in God’s presence. There is no place that God does not exist. God is very present in heaven and on earth, yet He is not bound by either. To say that God is Omnipresent, we mean that God in the totality of His essence fills the universe and beyond in all its parts.
This is a quality that belongs solely to God. No place is without God. There are many powers and principalities that are present today; but none of them are very present. God is more present than anyone or anything. Everything else is present outside of you but God is present inside of your being. God is present at every hospital, nursing home, prison cells and intensive care unit world over. The essence of God is present at the same moment in all. If God is everywhere present, it also means that in all places, we are present to Him. It is comforting to know that all of our troubles are immediately in God’s presence.
The closer anything gets to the SUN, the quicker it breaks up. The closer our trouble gets to the SON the quicker He breaks them up. In His omnipotence He has power to do it but in His Omnipresence He’s always where-ever He needs to be to do whatever needs to be done." God is present in the worst moments of life. Man can ignore God but no one can avoid Him. Everywhere we go, we will run into Him. Both the church and the cemetery are immediately in His presence. Why do you not make Him your Lord today?
Prayer: Father, thank you for being my ever present help in trouble.
