Then the king commanded Hilkiah. . .saying, “Go, inquire of the LORD for me . . .for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out on us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do according to all that is written in this book.”   (2 Chronicles 34:21)

The priest Hilkiah found the lost Book of the Law amidst the rubbish in the temple. Ironically, the Hebrew priests were so busy at the temple in their empty rituals that they lost the Word of God. You can indeed lose the Word of God in the house of God. Churchianity can keep you so busy doing church things that you have no time for the Word. Never, ever let anything replace the Word of God in your life, even good activities at church.

Live your life under God’s protection

When King David was running for his life, living in caves, he never lost his faith that he was protected.

Why? Because he knew God had his back – and He’s got yours, too.

So when times of trouble come into your life, remember that “Where is God?” might be the question that’s on your lips, but the answer is always: right where He’s always been. Working for the good of those who love Him, even when you can’t see it or feel it.

Pastor West’s new series, Living Under God’s Protection, shows you how you can live under God’s mighty shield, secure and safe through all of life’s storms and challenges.

And we’d love to send you a copy today as our thanks for your gift to share the message of God’s all-powerful, protective love with others who really need it in their lives.

So give now to help share God’s love – and be encouraged!
