Theme: Casting All Our Burden On The Lord

Text: ” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.” – Psalm 46:1-3.

Comment: The world is filled with fears because of the dangers that lurk around us. As true worshippers of God we should cry to God for help when we are faced with threats. Sennacherib, King of Assyria threatened to attack the people of God, boasting that the God of Israel would not be able to deliver Jerusalem just as the god of other nations he conquered could not deliver their people from his attacks. (2 Kings 18:28-37) This brought so much fear on the people of God as they were terrified, judging by the antecedent of the King of Assyria in conquering all whom he fought against. Hence, King Hezekiah solicited for prayers to God from Isaiah the Prophet. (2 Kings 19:1-5) Hezekiah himself took the letter to the temple, spread it before the LORD and prayed to God for help. (2 Kings 19:10-19). In the end, God sent an angel to the camp of the Assyrian soldiers by night and a total of 185,000 soldiers were dead by sunrise. The King of Assyria himself ran to his house and while worshipping his god, he was killed by his two sons. – 2 Kings 19:32-37.

The Holy Bible assures us that the eyes of God run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in the behalf of those whose hearts are perfect towards Him. 2 Chronicles 16:9.
