Scripture Reference: Psalms 19
God Is Not HidingDr. Warren W. Wiersbe | March 7, 1976
Selected highlights from this sermon
We can never say that God did not give us enough evidence to believe in Him because if we want to find it, the evidence is all around us. Psalm 19 declares the glories of God in three different areas. Each declaration provides deeper evidence that God is real. After seeing the greatness of God in creation and the grace of God in Scripture, we can experience the life of God in our hearts.
