True Security Comes From The Living God

True Security Comes From The Living God

Psalm 48

Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised
    in the city of our God!
His holy mountain, beautiful in elevation,
    is the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north,
    the city of the great King.
 Within her citadels God
    has made himself known as a fortress.

 For behold, the kings assembled;
    they came on together.
 As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;
    they were in panic; they took to flight.
 Trembling took hold of them there,
    anguish as of a woman in labor.
 By the east wind you shattered
    the ships of Tarshish.
 As we have heard, so have we seen
    in the city of the LORD of hosts,
in the city of our God,
    which God will establish forever. Selah

 We have thought on your steadfast love, O God,
    in the midst of your temple.
10  As your name, O God,
    so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11      Let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
    because of your judgments!

12  Walk about Zion, go around her,
    number her towers,
13  consider well her ramparts,
    go through her citadels,
that you may tell the next generation
14      that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
    He will guide us forever. 

Today’s Truth

Human nature has not progressed like the popular philosophy of our time tries to convince us it has. But the good news is God's plan for freedom and security has not changed either. Do you put your trust in an ever-changing culture or a God who will guide forever?

Discussion Questions
  1. How does the culture relate to your beliefs in Jesus? 
  2. If you were to write a song about the world we live in, would your song be positive or negative? Why?
  3. When you look back on your life, can you see Jesus guiding and protecting you from issues in this fallen world?
