Psalm 146:2 ... While I live I will praise the LORD: ... I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Psalm 104:33 ... (The psalmist's purpose to praise him.) I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
Psalm 146:3 ... Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, ... in whom there is no (salvation) hope.
Isaiah 2:22 ... Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
Psalm 146:4 ... His breath goeth forth, he returned to his earth; in that very day ...
Psalm 104:20 ... (An exhortation to bless the Lord for his mighty power, & wonderful providence.) Thou makest darkness, & it is night: wherein (all the beasts thereof do trample on the forest.) all beasts of the forest do creep forth.

Jeremiah 12:5 ... If you have run . If you get weary running with men. How can you compete with Horses?
This sermon was preached by my late sister-in-law's pastor, on June 20, 1982.
If thou has run with the footmen, & they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horeses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?... Jeremiah 12:5
I never heard him preach this sermon, but this Title & Scripture just amazed me. So what the Lord told him, I missed out on.
I had plenty time to get back with him and ask him to share - explain this to me, but he passed away about a year or may two/three ago. He was a 'big' figure for the 'African-American' community. He was featured in several forms of media.

El-Roi . The Strong One Who Sees . Exodus 16:12,13.. God is not sleep....HE is at the same place HE was when Jesus was on the cross.
I reviewed this book in 2005 while being a Writer & Host of a Baptist Site.
Finding peace in all kinds of weather.
Finding the Storm Cellar of God's Power.
This California - bred - and - raised woman couldn't believe it. She looked out at the Illinois landscape from her hotel room and couldn't comprehend the power of the storm that was lighting up the night sky. The TV blasted the warning that a tornado was possible and urged everyone to stay tuned for further coverage.
A tornado never did appear that evening, but speaker and writer Pamela Sonnenmopser told her of the time she lived through the devastation of one.
As she made her way through the winding road leading home, the clouds began to gather green and ominous. Suddenly the shrill shrieks of the emergency broadcast system came on the radio.
The announcer on the radio stated in monotones that a tornado with one-hundred-mile-an-hour winds was heading to Rushville, Missouri, at at rate of thirty-five miles per hour.
In their home, she made a few phone calls to warn several people.
Remembering more tornado tips, she ran to the center of their house and surrounded her body with blankets from her bed. There was nothing she could do except pray as the roaring sound of the nearby tornado was accented by sounds of breaking glass and tearing metal.
God had protected her from the storm.
Pamela concluded her story by saying,
We don't have to live in worry. We just need to walk in faith and trust that God is in control when we can't see what HE is doing.
The next time you feel like a tornado of worries is heading your way, trust God. HE is our storm cellar of protection and care. We can trust HIM.
