Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth. … God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM” …
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns. The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has brought desolations on the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire. “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah … Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Hosea 6:3, Exodus 3:14, Psalm 46, Psalm 72:25-26
Sovereign Lord, You are “I AM”. Thank You for telling us who You are. Community Bible Study comes before you today praising You for Your perfection in self-sufficiency, self-existence, and presence. You are eternally constant and able to accomplish Your will in all things. What a glorious gift it is to know You, Lord. Please hear our prayers on behalf of our CBS family who face persecution and are enduring hardship. Please hear our prayers on behalf of the lost. Would you move in hearts and awaken faith through Your Spirit and Your Word? Would you use Community Bible Study to hold out the Word of Truth to those in desperate need? There is nothing on earth that we desire besides you. You alone are the strength of our hearts. You alone are our fortress; we are not forsaken. We love You and in the Name of Your Son, Jesus, Amen.
CBS has ministries in a number of countries that are hostile to Christians. For the safety of our leaders and participants we may not indicate where ministry is happening and instead refer to the ministry in an “undisclosed country.”
