Psalms Mix: Songs for Every Season
April 18 - May 31, 2020
Week Six: Psalm 145
May 31, 2020 • May 31, 2020 • Adam Mashni
The beauty of the Psalms is they call us back to worship the one true God. David and the other authors knew this. By writing the Psalms, they were leaving bread crumbs for us to follow so we could discover the true source of life. As we see clearly in Psalm 145, there is only one who is worthy of our praise and worship.
Week Five: Psalm 107
May 24, 2020 • May 24, 2020 • Joe Seestadt
Have you ever received something that, over time, turns out to be way better than you initially expected? How great is that?! What if, when it comes to God, there’s more to His love than we realize? In Psalm 107, King David implores us to be thankful for this love. Starting today, may we begin thanking God for being even better than we knew Him to be.
Week Four: Psalm 62
May 17, 2020 • May 17, 2020 • Bob Shirock
The Hebrew word “only” (AK!) starts six different lines of this psalm and that’s why it really is “the only psalm.” It’s a song of confident trust in ONLY the Lord and it really forces us to ask the question: In whom, or what, do we trust for our security in life?
Week Three: Psalm 32
May 2, 2020 • May 2, 2020 • Rick Barry
The Psalms teach us how to be honest with God. No matter what we’re going through, God wants us to talk to Him openly and honestly, even emotionally. The most critical time to sing a song to God is when we have failed Him, when we have sinned; when we’ve fallen flat on our face and made a mess of things. This week we’re talking about Confession Songs.
Week Two: Psalm 57
April 25, 2020 • April 25, 2020 • Bob Shirock
Fight songs call out to the team and tell them that we believe in them. Against all odds, we cheer them on to push back the rival and lead us on to victory. It might surprise you to know that the Bible has its set of fight songs, too. About 16 of them are found in the book of Psalms, written mostly by the great King David during times when he was in a fight. Someone or something was trying to take him down, so he sings a fight song!
Week One: Psalm 13
April 18, 2020 • April 18, 2020 • Bob Shirock
God knew that in this fallen world we would need to know how to sing the blues. The Lament Psalms teach us how to process our way through the deep valleys of life. Psalm 13 is the classic lament Psalm. While only 6 verses, it contains all three key elements of healthy lament.
