Psalm 18 is a wonderful summary of praise and thanksgiving for God’s protection over the course of David’s life. The Psalm is repeated nearly identical in 2 Samuel 22. Psalm 18 recounts God’s protection and the reason for God’s protection with beautiful imagery – calling God his strength, rock, and fortress.
This morning I'd like to begin with verse I think all of us can appreciate. 24 The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Doesn't that sound wonderful! God as the creator shines…

By Pastor Glenn Pease There are few stories more exciting than escape stories. One of my favorite kinds of movie when I was a kid was prison escape movies. They are so full of suspense, and the obstacles to overcome are enormous. There is a great need to be clever, and best of all, they are not fiction,…

Nahum 2-3 continues the declaration of God's vengeance against Nineveh because of his unconditional love to Israel. In that sense, Nahum is a love letter to God's people. As we consider the historical and prophetic parallels found in Nahum - we learn that God has magnificent love, wisdom, power, and justice. The story of Nineveh should encourage us that our God is the only one who can meet our needs. All other love, wisdom, power, and justice pale in comparison to the magnificence of God displayed in Nahum 2-3.
Trusting God brings great benefits! A Song of degrees. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, From whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, Which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel Shall neither…
INTRODUCTION: One of the darkest places to live, is a place where people worship false gods. Living in a society where there is no god is just as dark, but false worship has it’s own unique tragedy and emptiness. Western culture has lived apart from ancient paganism so long, that we don’t realize what…
Intro What kind of person are you… really? Would you consider yourself to be wise or foolish? what is your reason behind this assertion? Prayer asdf Message 1 Then the Ziphites came to Saul at Gibeah, saying, “Is not David hiding himself on the hill of Hachilah, which is on the east of Jeshimon?” 2 So…

Our psalm for this week is a favorite for many people. I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord , the…
The Book of Genesis
For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him. for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who…

Who is in control of your life? The turn and twists of life will eventually remind you that we have very little wisdom or power over our lives. We cannot avoid the hardships we hate nor sustain the blessings we love. This passage presents a powerful alternative to directing our own lives. It presents us to a God who powerfully and personally directs the lives of his people. The word play, irony, and foreshadowing of this passage reminds us that God powerfully directs the lives of his believes.
INTRODUCTION: You are what you believe. That is a statement from pop psychology, but there is some merit to it. I would suggest that our response to suffering, is often directly proportional to what we believe about God. Not what we know about God, because I am talking about more then just knowing some…
Trouble in the Text: Jesus judges Israel’s leaders for being unfaithful & unfruitful. Another parable condemning the conduct of the Chief Priests and Pharisees in Jesus’ time. The landowner (God) plants the vineyard (kingdom of God; Isa. 5:2 ), has a wall built around it, had a winepress built, and has…
The Gospel in Romans
I’m So Glad We Have Help! I’m of the age now that I have to admit, more and more, that I need help in more areas than I’d like to admit. That’s specially true in my spiritual life. I tend to plug along on my own power, relying on the talents and gifts God has given me, forgetting that those are just…

We Fret , He Rests Part of our humanity is the idea that somehow we can altar our realities. In for the first time we see mankind attempt to solve a problem they could not possibly solve. Sin leads to self-reliance for spiritual needs which is further sin. Jesus wasn’t worried about the storm because…
Our Lesson this week takes a slight detour from praying to God's Providence. Encouraging and reminding us that we are a part of the team, that we do not have to fear, and that we can take refuge in our Father, our Guest speaker Min. Jonathan Bellamy speaks on, "Cover Me! I'm goin In!" Tune In & enjoy!!
Last week we read from John chapter 6, where Jesus fed the five-thousand. The crowd was so pleased with the bread Jesus gave that they showed up the next day looking for more. But they were disappointed. Instead Jesus said, “Do not labor for the bread that perishes. Labor instead for the bread that endures…
What we know for sure about guardian angels is that these divine agents assigned to the humblest have the most direct access to God as their person is the greatest in the kingdom. This should affect our own cultivation of humility, our own care in not despising the humble and our own prayer for those who do despise the humble.
