Be Still Sunday 14th April 19

Given the political chaos in which we find ourselves, I cannot think of a better way of serving you than sharing the glorious words of Psalm 46. The Psalmist writes:

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.

So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.

Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!

A river brings joy to the city of our God, the sacred home of the Most High. God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed. From the very break of day, God will protect it.

The nations are in chaos, and their kingdoms crumble!God’s voice thunders, and the earth melts! The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.

Come, see the glorious works of the Lord: See how he brings destruction upon the world. He causes wars to end throughout the earth. He breaks the bow and snaps the spear; he burns the shields with fire.

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honoured by every nation. I will be honoured throughout the world.” The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress. 

With this in mind. Whatever happens, whether within your personal life or in the present stand-off between Westminster and Brussels, I encourage you to ‘Be still’ in order that you would know the presence, peace, encouragement and comfort of your God.

Yours and His, Gareth
