Overcoming fear and anxiety is often a process, trusting in God’s presence and protection.
How are we to respond when we are depressed? Everyone will get depressed at some point in their lives, but how do we follow God in those times. Chip Ingram helps us navigate through these tough times.
Psalm 8. You have heard me mention on occasion something being cause for worship. I will see something God has done and pause to give Him the honor, praise and glory that’s due His name. Do you think about it, are you on the lookout for it? What in your life is cause for worship? Well, everything is, of course. But just saying that leaves it too general and nebulous. What specifically is cause for worship? Do you see it just in big things or do you see it in the little things, the countless little evidences of God’s love and kindness and presence with you? Psalm 8 is David noticing what is cause for worship in great big things and in small insignificant things. This is his celebrating the glory and grace of God. It’s David overwhelmed at who God is and what He has done. Do you hear his awe and the joy? It begins and ends with God, “how majestic is your name in all the earth.” And in between he attributes everything to God, the strong and the weak, the spectacular and the insignificant, the many and the few, infants and enemies, angels and men, beasts and birds, above the heavens and beneath the sea. It’s all from God and it’s all cause for worship. In 174 words he says what will take me almost 3,000 words just to start to unpack and draw out. And as I do we will see connections to the sanctity of human life on this Sunday set apart to acknowledge that.
We all want to get the most out of life, to make sure we don't waste it. This song (psalm) wants to make sure we have the right perspective to make the right decisions. It's a perspective that everyone should have an opportunity to consider!
Tick, tock, tick, tock. Time is the great equalizer, isn’t it? Nobody can add more to their life. You can make more money, make more friends, but you can’t make more time. So managing time becomes incredibly important. A look at Psalm 90 helps us debunk some myths about time so we obtain a wise approach to how we spend our time.
Here we find David writing out of a time of affliction, yet nevertheless giving thanks to God. In fact, he calls upon all the saints to join him in thanksgiving, giving us reasons to do so. Then he invites us to taste and see that the Lord is good. When we do so, we will properly fear the Lord who hears and delivers us from all distresses because he first delivered his righteous One from death. We shall end with one final call to taste and see the grace of God and to thank him for that grace.
