ILMS 18 – YA: With


We often formulate our ideas of God based on our ideas of people.

Psalm 46:7
The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress. 

  • This is a refrain of Psalm 46
  • Refrain: something repeated


Question: Why might this be a useful chorus to repeat to ourselves or one another in our own lives?

What kinds of things happen in the Psalm and in our lives that draw us to remember and need God? What kinds of things cause us to forget God or set God aside?


God with us = Never alone, even at our loneliest, God in the middle of everything


Spiritual truth- We have a “With Us” God


Biblical Proof:

Zephaniah 3:17

What does God enjoy watching you do in life?


Joshua 1:9

Where is God going with you today?


Psalm 23:4

What kinds of shadows is God walking through with us?



Consider how God is with each person in these passages and what that means for us:

Judges 6:12

Matthew 28:20

Isaiah 7:14


Proverbs 18:10 - running to God to be with Him

The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
    the righteous man runs into it and is safe.



Drawing Near = running to our fortress and strong tower
