Sermon Outline, March 24, 2019, “Trust God’s Protection”
Trust God’s Protection
~ Psalm 91:1-4 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
God protects from Jealousy!
Jealous people attempt to destroy!
~ James 3:15-16 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.
God protects through Contentment!
~ Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
God protects from Critics!
Critics attempt to destroy!
~ James 3:14-16 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.
God protects through the Truth!
~ John 8:32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.
God protects from Hate!
Hateful people attempt to destroy!
~ I Peter 5:8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
~ John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
God protects our Soul!
~ Psalm 121:7 The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
~ II Timothy 4:18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
~ Romans 8:37-39 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
