Sermon Summary

There is rest for our wondering hearts in the mighty refuge of our sovereign Lord. His faithfulness and compassion are the foundation of our glorious hope.

 

DISCUSS TOGETHER

  • Why is it significant that the psalmist starts with theology ("God is") and not with his circumstances? How is this instructive for us in our current situation?
  • How might fear manifest itself in your life this week? What would it look like to be confident in the power and presence of God?
  • In heeding the call of verse 8, what historical works of God (in scripture and in your own life) instill confidence in his power and goodness?
  • How does the return of Christ change our view of earthly crisis? What are some practical ways we can "be still" and know that he is God this week?

PRAY TOGETHER

  • Spend time praising God, acknowledging his power, glory, goodness, faithfulness, sovereignty, compassion.
  • Thank God for being always WITH us.
  • Ask God to strengthen faith and keep us from being ruled by fear.
  • Pray for an increased eagerness for Christ's return.
  • Pray for others to see God as he is, and to trust him
  • Pray that we would be used by God to exalt his name in all the earth.
  • Pray for our church to be united in the fear of God.
