A Note from the Pastor


A Note from the Pastor


We live in confusing, troubling times. Read these verses. Let their truth wash over your spirit.

Psa 16:1 A prayer of David. Protect me, O God, for I have taken shelter in you.

Psa 61:4 I will be a permanent guest in your home; I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. (Selah)

Psa 91:4 He will shelter you with his wings; you will find safety under his wings. His faithfulness is like a shield or a protective wall.

2Sa 22:3 My God is my rocky summit where I take shelter, my shield, the horn that saves me, my stronghold, my refuge, my savior. You save me from violence!

Pro 29:25 The fear of people becomes a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord will be set on high.

Psa 18:2 The Lord is my high ridge, my stronghold, my deliverer. My God is my rocky summit where I take shelter, my shield, the horn that saves me, and my refuge.

Pro 30:5 Every word of God is purified; he is like a shield for those who take refuge in him.

Psa 91:2 I say this about the Lord, my shelter and my stronghold, my God in whom I trust –

Psa 62:8 Trust in him at all times, you people! Pour out your hearts before him! God is our shelter! (Selah)

Psa 61:3 Indeed, you are my shelter, a strong tower that protects me from the enemy.

Nah 1:7 The Lord is good – indeed, he is a fortress in time of distress, and he protects those who seek refuge in him.

Psa 37:39 But the Lord delivers the godly; he protects them in times of trouble.

Part of the troubling times involves what’s happening in Virginia. Please read the paragraph and respond as you are led. This is from the Family Foundation.

Between now and Feb. 3, we are facing a crucial time for Virginian families: The Virginia Department of Education has proposed a policy that essentially mandates the promotion of gender confusion to every single K-12 public school student. There is a short window of time for parents and concerned Virginians to make their voice heard on the draft of this sweeping policy. (To review 10 ways this policy endangers parental rights and student safety and privacy, click here). Please pray that The Family Foundation’s efforts to educate Virginians on this transgender model policy motivate thousands of people to speak up boldly against it being mandated in their children’s schools. Pray that the Department of Education will be receptive to the concerns of parents and reject policy that hurts children and disrespects parents. Please pray that parents will use this opportunity to educate their children through scripture, helping them to avoid the confusion and deception of the world and instead celebrate their God-given gender and sexuality.

Intercessors for America has an excellent article on individual repentance from Gloria Robles if you are interested.
