The Good Shepherd
One of the greatest of all the psalms gives us hope when venturing out of the sheep pen that a God of great love will accompany us in life\'s darkest valleys.
Do You Feel Forsaken?
Often Christians their most difficult moments when they choose to trust God in difficult times and then He seems not to answer. David, and Jesus experienced this and we can learn from their reactions.
God is for you!
What fulfills your life? In this study we look at some reasons that God should be the one who brings you satisfaction, joy, answers, and rescue.
God as Your Warrior
No matter how deep of a hole you find yourself in, if you have a relationship with God He will hear, He will find, and He will rescue you, though the victory may not be what you expect, it is accomplishing God\'s will
Is This All There Is?
In our world of entertainment, glitz, and glamor, we are led to believe that if we follow the pattern of this age we can get satisfaction. But in the end it is only temporary. David tells us that the satisfaction that comes from a relationship with God has no expiration date.
The thing we have the least patience with is waiting. When we are facing a difficulty we want instant results. When God doesn\'t operate on our table we get frustrated. David got frustrated too but how he handles it can help us have patience too.
When Evil Boasts
Sometimes it feels like people who boast there is no God and they will not be accountable for what they do are everywhere. But Psalms 10, 11, & 12 show us the true character of evil and the true heart of God who hears, observes, and rescues those who take refuge in Him.
What To Do When Evil Threatens
Does God really hear our prayers and cries for help when other people abuse us? What should our reaction be in those situations? Learn some helpful hints from these psalms as David faces similar problems.
What to do when you are surrounded
Are there times in your life when you feel penned in on every side and there is no where to turn for relief? Do you ever cry yourself to sleep only to wake up early? If so, then these psalms are for your comfort and hope.
God Our Rescuer - God our King
Psalms 2 & 3 show us that God is in charge no matter how the human default condition of rebellion tries to get in the way. They also show us that when faced with difficulty there are four things we do naturally that make our troubles worse, and four ways to go through difficulties God\'s way.
Digging for Water
Everyone wants wisdom, but Psalm 1 gives more than just good advice, but vital information that can affect your entire life and beyond. It describes two paths in the life of your mind. Choices matter, which one are you making on a daily basis?
The Book of Psalms is the most unique book of the Bible. It was written over the longest period of time, has the most chapters, the most words, and the most quotations in the New Testament. But the Psalms is unique for another reason. It digs down into the emotions of the song writer. This openness also allows Yahweh to speak in ways that are personal and profound. In this introduction we get to the this most unique of books as a whole.
Jesus the Sneaky Savior
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most important even in human history. Coming down from that global perspective, what does the resurrection mean to me? That\'s the question we\'ll talk about as we conclude our study in Mark\'s gospel.
What Happened on the Cross?
What exactly happened on the cross of Jesus Christ? What did it mean then and what does it mean to me now? Is is just a mascot, a symbol, or something much much more?
Jesus Died in Weakness
Weakness is not something valued by our culture or this age. But the death of Jesus shows us the strength we can all find in the weakest of moments.
The Darkest Day
The death of Jesus Christ is at the same time the deepest darkest day in human history and the beginning of the most promising era in human history. Though the physical agony great, the spiritual agony was even greater for our Lord.
Many times when we look at the portion of Mark 14 involving the arrest and trial of Jesus we focus on Judas - the betrayer. But Mark shows us that many more than Judas betrayed Jesus that night, and it shows us how short we fall and how great our Savior really is.
Intimacy & Agony
How do you handle impending doom? You know, those times when something bad is happening and it\'s about to get much worse? Jesus faced the ultimate in impending doom in the Garden of Gethsemane. How He handled it is a model for us in times of difficulty.
Ultimate Worship - Ultimate Betrayal
It is at the darkest part of the night that a light shines the brightest. As we come to Mark 13 we see hope at the end of a terrible time in earth\'s history, when the lights will dim for the coming King. Then we see the path to that event beginning as the Lord is served with the ultimate act of worship and the ultimate act of betrayal.
Looking to the End
There is a lot of excitement generated in the Christian community around the return of Jesus. Jesus\' men were excited too, but what Jesus tells them is not a timeline or series of events, but how they should act while waiting. It\'s good advise for us too who await Jesus\' return eagerly.
