Selected highlights from this sermon

The theme of Psalm 46 is the sufficiency of God. At the time the psalm was written, the Assyrian army had invaded Israel, but God sent His angel to destroy the army and protect Jerusalem. No matter the battle or storm we face, our God is in control and He is sufficient for our every need in every situation.

Transcripts for Dr. Wiersbe's sermons are forthcoming. Below is an outline of his message.

The theme of Psalm 46 is the sufficiency of God for every situation.

Three ways God is sufficient for everything we may face:

  • God is our refuge, so we do not need to fear (Psalm 46:2-3).
    • Your refuge is the thing you turn to when life is difficult.
    • God should be our only refuge.
    • God will never change or move.
  • God is our strength, so we do not have to faint (Psalm 46:4-7).
    • God doesn’t protect us to pamper us. He protects us to prepare
    • When we go to God to hide, He gives us the strength to face the battle or storm.
    • God shelters us so that He can help and strengthen us.
    • When you face trials, do you draw on the hidden resources of God?
  • God is our present help, so we do not need to fret (Psalm 46:8-11).
    • We cause more problems when we try to do things our own way rather than trusting God.
    • God’s present help means that He is always accessible.
    • God is going to be exalted on this Earth, and our lives are part of that.
    • God saved us to be part of His glory, so He will not leave us alone.

A mighty fortress is our God.
