Encouragement for Today: 'Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.'



Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. ~Psalm 90, vs.1 (KJV)

Don't underestimate the power of God working through small rural churhes; I remember as a new believer thinking we should be building mega churches to glorify the Lord. But that view has changed down through the years as the good Lord placed me in several small congregations. I'm presently in a small Baptist church near my home in the Missouri Ozarks. We might have had a dozen or so worshippers this past Lord's Day and while we were but a few in attendence, the pastor preached a powerful sermon on Psalm 95. It's a message I will always treasure in my heart.

Be encouraged to know God is at work even in unassuming small places.

Psalm 95 (KJV)

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.

5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.

7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.

10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:

11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
