A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

In Sermons
Scripture: Psalm 46
Topics: Anxiety, Culture & Politics, Faith & Hope,
Contributor: Joel Webbon

Whether our source of hardship be from without or within, the Lord is a “refuge” to all those who seek shelter in him. God is not merely our hope of future deliverance from every kind of “trouble,” but he is also our source of “present help.” He presently helps his people by equipping and empowering them to bear any kind …

Contributor: Joel Webbon

In Psalm 43, David pleads with God to deliver him from the hands of those mistreating him, but not before first submitting himself to be examined by God. John Calvin once said, “It is vain for us to expect that God will avenge the injuries and wrongs which are done to us, unless our own integrity be so manifest as …

Contributor: Joel Webbon

David’s enemies constantly reminded him of his failures and God’s apparent absence. However, David combats this constant assault by reminding himself of his past moments in the presence of God. David’s fondest memories of the presence of God are when he was surrounded by the people of God. David remembers the “throng” of worshipers and the “multitude keeping festival.” David …

Contributor: Joel Webbon

Whether on the run from King Saul or his son Absalom, David has been effectively cut off the land of Israel, and most significantly, the Tabernacle. Therefore, the psalmist is deprived of the praise of God, the people of God, and the presence of God. He is consumed by a desperate, and even violent, thirst for the pleasure and privilege …

Many Christians, and even pastors, go to great lengths to conceal and minimize their sin. But a refusal to confess our sins produces only misery and heartache. It causes us to fall under the fatherly displeasure of God. Therefore, Christians should run to God quickly and fully.

On the surface, Psalm 24 describes David and his men as they approached the gates of Jerusalem with the ark of the covenant. And yet, in a much deeper sense, this is a prophetic description of the majestic scene of heaven directly after the ascension of Jesus. For the first time in history, a man actually approached the gates of …

Contributor: Joel Webbon

Psalm 23 is an account of everything God has already done for David in the past, as well as everything David is confident God will do for him in the future. But the chief end of all God’s past provisions and future promises is found in the final phrase of verse 3: “…He leads me in the paths of righteousness …
