‚ÄúHe that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.‚ÄĚ (Psalm 91:1‚Äď2). What a bright beginning to a simple psalm that exudes cheerful trust. These two verses present four metaphors that refer to God‚Äôs presence, two of which draw from a picture of a bird and her little ones and two drawn from military life. Is God your refuge in time of trouble? Do you live in His presence? The psalmist uses four names of God that emphasize His power and sovereignty. Do you trust in God‚Äôs power?
Spurgeon wrote of these verses, ‚ÄúThe blessings here promised are not for all believers, but for those who live in close fellowship with God. Every child of God looks towards the inner sanctuary and the mercy-seat, yet all do not dwell in the most holy place; they run to it at times and enjoy occasional approaches, but they do not habitually reside in the mysterious presence.‚ÄĚ
In recent days our broadcasters have provided feedback to us that encourages us. Check out some of their recent sermons and pray for our broadcasters who prepare messages that urge us to live in close fellowship with the Lord.

But first, some other encouragements!
It was once again our distinct privilege to host the Foundations Conference assembling some of our generation's finest speakers in one of the world's greatest cities to focus our attention for two full days around a most important subject. All messages have been uploaded in both audio and video formats for your enjoyment!
As a concluding tribute to the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Dr. Steven Lawson delivered the final conference address on The Preachers of the Reformation. At the end of the message, he was presented with a special surprise gift in appreciation for his ministry and for his participation in the conference.
"500 Years of the Reformation" features the four great Reformers that he just finished preaching upon (Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, Knox) set against the backdrop of a cityscape depicting architecture spanning from the 16th century to the 21st century. The frame itself was handcrafted by missionary Marcus Reyes in Orizaba, Mexico using Black Walnut from the surrounding mountainous regions. The rough lumber is harvested by the indigenous descendants of the Aztec among whom he ministers the Gospel.

Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
|Pastor Scott Justice, Gloryland Baptist Church|
www.sermonaudio.com/gloryland"We really appreciate the service you all provide. We have people who listen to us all over the world, including missionaries in some secluded places. Some of these are missionaries we support and others are missionaries we have never met. Our former pastor spoke at a missions conference recently and he received a good deal of feedback from those who listen to us on SermonAudio. Occasionally we receive emails from people who listen to our messages and they are very encouraged by this means of accessing God‚Äôs Word. We are so thankful for the opportunity to spread God‚Äôs Word in this way. We are excited to hear about that we can now upload an unlimited number of sermons each month. We will be using that in the near future."
|Pastor Phil Cavin, Glencullen Baptist Church|
www.sermonaudio.com/glencullen"We count it a blessing to be partnering with you at SermonAudio. We thank the Lord that in recent months we have seen a significant increase in the downloads of our sermons. We can‚Äôt explain it but rejoice in this. We often have visitors who are just passing through our area or who are looking for a church in the community. They often share that they have been listening to us on SermonAudio. We pray for you as a church. You folks are easy to work with and we are thankful for your service to us."
|Victor Allende, New Hyde Park Baptist Church|
www.sermonaudio.com/nhpbc"Our local church currently has partnered with SermonAudio to post sermons from our Sunday‚Äôs (Morning/Evening) services. Our congregation has benefited tremendously in the use of this website. It provides the opportunity for our members to download and listen Sunday‚Äôs sermons throughout the week. Furthermore, I personally have used this site for many years to listen sermons from various topics and verse by verse preaching. It has been helpful in the complement of studying God‚Äôs Word. One of the many neat features about SermonAudio that is helpful, it is the Local Church Finder. It locates faithful and solid Gospel center churches around one‚Äôs local area and across the United States. Glad for this website, its vision, its mission, and the kind support the staff provides to so many like-minded believers and churches across the United States and overseas. We truly appreciate the partnership our church has with SermonAudio."
|Pastor Cliff Peppers, Gold Country Baptist Church|
www.sermonaudio.com/gcbc"Our people use SermonAudio all the time and have ben greatly blessed by this means of hearing God‚Äôs Word. We are so blessed as pastors by it as well. We are aware that being on SermonAudio gives us a worldwide outreach that we would not have otherwise. We host quite a few conferences at our church and we can just point the attendees to your site if if they want to re-listen to messages again. We really enjoy it and are grateful for what you do for us!"
|Bob Picard, God‚Äôs Grace Bible Church|
www.sermonaudio.com/ggbc"I like everything about SermonAudio. I have tried many other products for blogs and for audio uploading, but SermonAudio surpasses them all. I have saved a great deal of time by using SermonAudio instead of other sites. I love the format. I just told another nearby church about SermonAudio and said if you can afford the monthly charge then by all means use this site! I personally use the ROKU app as I am at home. I think the site is well-rounded. We use several of the features such as the Facebook and Twitter integration. SermonAudio offers a ‚Äėone-stop shopping‚Äô with lots of features any church can access."
