Dear Friends,

Psalm 34 is a Psalm of David written at a time of danger to his life. He even faked insanity, because of his fear of a Philistine King. Remember this same David had earlier in life, slain Goliath, the Philistine giant. But life can get complex and complicated, with faith tested in new trials. The Lord refines our faith, which is more precious than gold (1 Peter 1:7). 

David makes s statement of faith in Psalm 34:7, which is also a precious promise from God. "The Angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them". The Angel of the Lord  can refer to the pre-incarnate Jesus or to angels created by the Lord who minister mostly unseen in this fallen world. The verb “encamps” (around God's people), can also be translated, to lay siege. The sense is of permanence, protection and continual watching. As one writer puts it, the Lord is that for His people till we swap this battlefield for our eternal home of rest. What a comfort to know that we are surrounded by our Lord and His army. May our eyes of faith be opened. What a comfort especially in times of trouble. So let us continually commit ourselves into this care. 

This Saturday/Sabbath, we meet again at the Lowestoft Church building for Adult, Children and Teen Sabbath Schools, starting at 10am. That is followed by our Worship Service at 11.15am. Social distancing will be in place and face covering are to be worn unless exempt. The Worship Service will also be on Zoom and Facebook. Mike Clarry will be sharing a message. We also look forward to Helen and Janna Wilkinson singing the hymns for us. There will be a children's story and some supervised activities for children that require support during the service.
 
Be Blessed,

Pastor Mark
