ILMS 21 – YA: Brought

The best way to make sense of God’s work in destruction is to remember what He is done and Who He is.


Psalm 46:8-9

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.




End to war

  • The grey area of destruction
  • God does destroy and allow destruction, Ecc 3, God created for our benefit but He will work in destruction to reveal Himself, without Good Friday there is no Easter
  • Hebrew for desolations = waste or horror
  • (Shawmah) to (shawbath)



Come behold the works of the Lord

  • what is there to behold that the Lord does?
  • He place of rememberance in getting through life’s hard stuff
  • Brainstorm-

God creates

God provides

God disciplines

God watches over

God changes - hearts and history

God saves


God brings in rest and restoration
