Life With God
Overwhelmed by God
Psalm 39 • July 4, 2020 • Josh Moffit
The Psalms were written for a year like 2020 because they give expression to our many different emotions – our highs and our lows – our confusion and our confidence – our anger and our love – our deepest sadness and highest joys. The Psalms legitimize our emotions. The Psalms remind us that our emotions are a gift from God and rightly understood they lead us to the Creator and Redeemer of our emotions so that they can then be used to glorify Him in all of their great variety. Listen to hear how Jesus gives us hope even when we are feeling overwhelmed.
Longing for Home
Psalm 122 • May 30, 2020 • Tim Cain
No matter how happily settled you and I maybe each of us knows that deep down inside something tells us there has to be more. C.S. Lewis called this longing our inconsolable secret. In this sermon, we will consider what it is that we are ultimately longing for and how it is that we might one day experience the satisfaction we are seeking.
Psalm 32 • May 23, 2020 • Tim Cain
All of us have a deep longing not only to be loved but to be enjoyed and appreciated by the people we esteem the most. Growing up we quickly learn that if we want to get the love we seek we need to be good. But what happens when we realize that we are not good enough to get the amount of love we need to be happy? In Psalm 32 David answers this important question for us.
Learning to Trust
Psalm 28 • May 16, 2020 • Tim Cain
Most of us find ourselves fluctuating between feeling like things are under control and being happy and being overwhelmed because we realize how little control we actually have. Back and forth we go between feeling confident in our plans and feeling anxious about things we can’t control. But In Psalm 28 David comes to show us a 3rd way. He begins by reminding us all how little we really do control but instead of being overwhelmed with anxiety David says, “My heart trusts in God and I am helped.” In this message, we will consider what it would look like for us to relinquish control into the hands of our God and rest in his ability to care for us.
The King Who Prays
Psalm 20 • May 9, 2020 • Tim Cain
What is Jesus doing right now? We talk often about how Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the grave, but what is he doing right now? In Psalm 20 we will take a closer look at what Jesus is doing up in heaven today and the impact that ought to have on our own lives.
The Gospel and our Insecurities
Psalm 16 • May 2, 2020 • Tim Cain
Many of us have trusted God to protect the things in life that we loved the most only to realize that he doesn’t always do it. Why? Why doesn’t God always protect the things we love the most? And what are we supposed to do with all the insecurities that come from realizing that God doesn't always protect the things we care about? This message comes to help us understand how we can still trust God and live securely even when he doesn’t always protect the things we really love.
