MESSAGE TITLE: THE PLACE OF HELP
By Pst. (Dr.) Mrs. Divine Ojuh
God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1
‘THE PLACE OF HELP’ talks about where the help God has provided can locate you in your time of need, and your right positioning to accessing the help from God at all times.
THE PLACE OF HELP IS:
The place of righteous living.
The stand of faith in God’s word.
The place of prayers.
The place of fasting.
The place of praise and worship.
The place of giving
The position of kingdom service.
