For a believer, safety doesn't come in the absence of suffering but safety comes when we find rest in the midst of suffering. Jesus said, "In this world you will have troubles but take heart, I have overcome the world." A shelter doesn't reduce the intensity of the storm outside, it doesn't still the thunder, stop the lightning or keep the rain from pelting on our windows- but it gives us a place of peace and rest even when the storm continues. Let's abide in God's shelter.
Psalm 91 NIV He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
Even though we cannot meet as a group we are using technology to connect for Prayer, Book Study, Men's Group, AWANA, Youth, and Worship. Last week, we supplied lunch and care packets to several people. I personally am witnessing a renewed enthusiasm in FBC to be the church Christ envisioned.
