Sermon Illustrations

One of images which remains with me is the sight of the Nile valley seen from 35,000 feet up when returning from the Middle East. There was a green fertile strip on both sides of the river and then nothing but sand - and that’s where David felt he was. When I was preparing this message television was showing The Open (golf championship) at St Andrew’s, Scotland. Some contestants had the misfortune of playing the ball into the rough or a bunker. That’s where David felt he was - and, perhaps, us too. And yet God is there.
