In Psalm 51, David shows God his heart of confession, then his authentic longing for a cleansed heart. Now we learn about David's Heart of Conviction! As believers, we need to follow David's example by continuing to mature in Christ, by transforming others by telling them about His grace, by worshiping through prayer and song wholeheartedly, by maintaining our brokenness and especially, by building His kingdom.
Who alone can take a wretched, broken heart of sin and transform it into a heart of righteousness? Only our almightly, merciful God! In Psalm 51, verses 7 to 13, David, when faced with the foulness of his sins, begs God to cleanse his heart and prepare it for amazing renewal and revival. Oh Lord, let us, too, put our pride aside and beg for a clean heart!
When He shed His perfect blood for us at the cross, the Lamb, our Saviour Jesus Christ paid for our sins once and for all. But that does not mean we do not grieve the Holy Spirit when we sin. In Psalm 51, David cries out to God after he realizes the evil of his transgressions of adultery and murder, and through his sorrow and pain, we see how merciful our Lord is when He is faced with a heart of true confession.
Integrity has been defined as "who you are when nobody is watching". Employees tell us that above all, integrity is the single most important characteristic in a leader. The world appreciates integrity, but it is deeply valued by God. The Lord gave us Jesus, the perfect picture of integrity. It is the foundation that allows us to trust in God without wavering. Today, Pastor Robbie examines Psalm 26 and living a life of integrity.
Psalm 16 reveals the key to the life of true contentment. Through David's complete dependence on and his intimate relationship with God, he has discovered confidence and peace. This results from a heart that is totally surrendered to the Lord and a life devoted to pursuing Him first above all things. Jesus tells us in Mattew 5:6 'Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied". Seek first Christ and his righteousness and find the satisfied life!
Today wraps up our mini series, and today we are addressing how the believer in Christ is supposed to respond to the tumultuous world we live in. We know this world is unstable, but God is Immovable! Therefore, if you are rooted in Christ you have no need to be afraid. If you are genuinely saved, Jesus will not "unsave" you. What he starts, he finishes. He promises us that all who the Father gives to him, he will not cast out. He will not lose even one.
This mini series focuses on Psalm 112, a relatively little known psalm. Today’s message reminds us of the constant and unfathomable blessings that God pours down on us through His steadiness and perfection. This passage brings us truth about who we are in the Lord. For the righteous will never be moved! You will be remembered forever by the living God. When you are chosen, you are secure.At the end of the day, when you belong to the Lord, you are His!
How amazing is the beauty and the power of Wisdom as illustrated in God's Word! Today, we conclude our Worth of Wisdom series with Wisdom for Life, examining Proverbs 9 as God implores us to make our final decision: will we live in folly, which inevitably leads to death, or in wisdom, the only path to true life and the only sure way to Heaven? The choice is ours...
When this world is in the midst of confusion, chaos and anxiety, the Psalms deliver clarity, conviction and the peace of God. Psalm 1 in particular, provides us with God's blueprint to the life of incredible blessing. Do you find that the challenges of everyday life have become a distraction from the Lord? Find the roadmap to the blessed life, beginning here in Psalm 1!
Today, we turn once again to God's Word, specifically His counsel in Proverbs, as He calls us to check wisdom in our hearts... and in our homes. Proverbs 24:3-4 says that if they are built on the foundation of wisdom, our homes will offer security, stability and safety. Much more than bricks and mortar, a Godly home consists of wise husbands and excellent wives raising God-fearing children filled with joy. Does wisdom perfume your home?
