Psalm 131 may seem like a strange one to study on Palm Sunday since that day is normally associated with shouts of praise. But it seems that we need to learn less noise and more humility in our worship. David lays out the kind of posture we should have as we approach God in worship. This Psalm, and the principles it teaches us, will lead us to observe communion together as we kick off Holy Week.
How could God possibly be good if my life is such a mess while those who don't believe
in God seem to have it so good? If you've ever asked something like this, you're not alone. As a matter of fact, that very question is hashed out in great detail in the book of Psalms. Here we look at how to grapple with doubt, envy and despair from one of the most honest Psalms in the Bible, Psalm 73.
“I Raise My Hallelujah” - Week 2 - Here we dive into Psalm 19 as we discover the two ways God has revealed Himself to us: creation and His Word. Why is it significant that God made Himself known to us, and how should we respond to that? God's revealing Himself to us and all of creation shouts of His glory. And He has further revealed His attributes, character, heart, and will through His Word. This truth should bring about a certain response that we will look at together.
“I Raise My Hallelujah” - Here we dive into Psalm 16, the first of four psalms over the next four weeks. It describes how Jesus is our greatest delight and highest pleasure. Every other path will result in misery and destruction. Peter and Paul quote this psalm in Acts, a reminder that the Old Testament constantly points us to Jesus even before He came on the scene. Let’s find out what it means to find all our joy and pleasure in God.
