The Bible uses strong words to describe God’s attitude toward evil – The Lord hates, the Lord abhors, the Lord detests, the Lord destroys. They are not words we are accustomed to hearing today, but some people give themselves over so fully to evil that they become the objects of God’s wrath. Let’s learn more about this today.
When you find yourself in tight spots, temptation to do the wrong thing will be greater. Today I will share with you what you must do when you find yourself in difficult situations.
Could you use a good night’s sleep? I bet some of you listening today have trouble sleeping because of worry or fear. What’s the solution? – meditate on the truth of God. Stop meditating on the lies.
Don’t let the lies of the world, the lies of others, the lies of the evil one and sometimes the lies we tell ourselves, drive a wedge between you and God.
Jesus has come to claim all the nations for God. Jesus has come to quiet the rebellion of the earth, to subdue the nations of the world and to reinstate the reign of God. Today we are going to discover how he does this and how you and I get to be part of it.
What makes God laugh? Did you know that God laughs? Three times in Psalms it says this. Today, we are going to learn one surprising reason why he laughs and learn how this can bring great comfort to our soul.
You would not heed the counsel of a wicked person, would you? Of course not, but wait until you hear the story of what happened in a Christian school in our country!
The first word of the first chapter in the book of Psalms is “happy.” The last word in Psalm 1 is perish. It is as if the writer is saying, “I am holding out two paths for you. One brings happiness, one will cause you to perish. Which path will you choose?”
Is there someone you need to be reconciled with? A family member? A friend? Have you offended this person and you need to humble yourself and ask forgiveness? Or, perhaps the other person has offended you and you are harboring bitterness in your heart? God wants to work in this situation right now.
People were alienated from God and the people of God. They were cut off from the Messiah, from the covenants of promise, and from hope. But friends … that is not the end of the story for the very next words begin with that great word of divine intervention – But – this is the way the world was, but God intervened.
God doesn’t want us to come to him with head down but with head up, not dragging our feet but stepping forward with firmness, not groveling in the dirt, but bowing in adoration.
Do you want to grow and have your life be mighty for the Lord? If so, you must first dig down to go up. You must let the Lord dig deep into your heart, clear out the rubble of the old life, the old ways, the old sins and let him lay solid foundation stones of His love for you in your heart.
We have three solid underpinnings for the Christian life – and the third one is – doing it all in community. We cannot live this life alone.
