Psalm 40 – God is Our Help and Deliverer

We constantly speak in hope language:   “I hope my company does well.” “I hope he isn’t mad at me.” “I hope God really does answer prayer.” “I sure hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow.” “I hope this sickness isn’t something serious.”   If you are a human being, you hope. You attach your security, your […]

Pastoral Prayer – July 29, 2018

Almighty God, we come before you humbly, echoing the words of David, “Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours.  Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head […]

Psalm 39 – The Brevity of Life

I know it’s a cliche, but it’s also true: life is short.   Often far too short. One of my in-laws just lost her mother to Parkinson’s; the mom was only in her 50s. A pastor I know from back in Michigan just saw his teenage son pass away. We’ve already had several deaths at […]

Psalm 38 – The Discipline of God for Our Good

ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE FEATURES of David is his candor. At his best he is transparently honest. That means, among other things, that when there is an array of things going wrong in his life he does not collapse them into a single problem.   Nothing could be clearer from Psalm 38. Commentators sometimes […]

Pastoral Prayer – July 15, 2018

James 1:5 says, “…if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” In prayer we express our dependency upon God, therefore on this morning, let us together ask God to be generous in giving us wisdom as a church for the days ahead. […]

Psalm 37 – The Cure for Envy

There are so many opportunities for envy, but Psalm 37:4 is an amazing promise, because envy usually arises from not having the desire of your heart. You will see somebody that has something that you wish you had, and you’ll see that this desire is missing in this life. So the best way to fight […]
