Our God is With Us


For several years, one of my favorite passages to use for preaching has been Psalm 71. I have preached sermons from this passage in English and in Spanish, and every time I am reminded that God is always with me. Here are some of the verses that bring up that remembrance:


Verse 3: “Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go….” (NIV)

Verse 8: “…from birth I have relied on You….” (NIV) (even in my mother’s womb – God was there and with me)

Verse 17: “Since my youth, God, You have taught me….”

Verse 18: “Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God.”

Verse 22: “I will praise You... for Your faithfulness, my God…”


God loves us and He is intimately involved in our lives from beginning to end. Remember, He is the Alpha and the Omega.
