The Pastor's Pen


- God's Love Through Adversity-

--Psalm 119:71 " It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes."
    The psalmist David went through times when he knew for certain that the Lord was his only source of help and salvation. The Lord permits you and I to experience trials in our lives many times so the He can reveal His power and His love through our trials. A widely known man of faith, George Müller,  once said, " Difficulties, limitations, and hindrances are the very things God uses that causes us to grow spiritually." The Lord never allows anything to come against His children that t cannot bear.

    There's an old hymn named," How Firm A Foundation". Why not ask yourself how firm your foundation really is today. Is your foundation founded on the Rock Of Ages, or is it founded on sinking sand? Not having a solid spiritual foundation is the same as leaving the front door open of your home for the enemy to plunder! Keep your foundation solid; you'll never regret it later! 


God Bless,
