God is My Refuge Daily

Allen Daniels

Brother Allen began his message by reading the words of Hymn #45 in PBH (“Meditations”) and commenting on the message and giving his personal experience with the song.

Text: Psalms 62 and and 63


God has been my refuge daily,
God has been my hiding place,
He will ever lead me onward,
He will take me home at last.

He knows all my joys and sorrows,
He knows all my trials and cares,
He knows all my sins and errors,
Yet for me He daily cares.

He has taught my heart to love Him,
While He found me deep in sin,
Yet He love me long before then,
E’en before the world began.

All my days I want to serve Him,
He has been so good to me,
Ev’ry day shall be to serve Him,
Long as breath remains in me.

Temptations/Tribulations/ Trials/Testings

Randy McCarthy

Brother Randy opened services speaking again from Mark Chapter 4 concerning the four parables spoken by Jesus in verses 1-34; he pointed out that the last three parables add to and expand upon the first one (The Parable of the Sower).

“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”

Allen Daniels

Brother Allen tied his message to Brother Randy’s by making reference to Mark 4:18-19 (the seeds which were sown among thorns) and continued speaking about the temptations/tribulations/trials/testings which we encounter in this life as we strive to enter into the Kingdom of God.
