The Psalms Of Ascension
Ascending Together in Unity
#16 - Psalm 133-134 • November 25, 2018 • John Anderson
God describes how "good" and how "pleasant" it is for His people to dwell together in unity. We were designed to do life together, to love each other and serve alongside each other as believers. This unity will always bring the blessing of Almighty God!
Depending While Ascending
#10 - Psalm 127 • October 21, 2018 • John Anderson
This Psalm of Ascension is attributed to Solomon. If anyone could tell us what a life of self-dependence is like, he certainly could. He finally learned that we need God for everything in life. The second half of this Psalm may describe the most difficult part of life that requires God's help and intervention - raising our children!
#9 - Psalm 126 • October 14, 2018 • John Anderson
This Psalm is a song of revival, of renewal, of Israel making a comeback after 70 long years in Babylonian captivity. We also become captive to our sin, to cold hearts for the Lord, and to spiritual apathy. Let's learn the process for making a spiritual comeback!
Count Your Blessings
#7 - Psalm 124 • October 7, 2018 • John Anderson
In this Psalm of Ascension, the writer is thinking back to the horrible circumstances that could have ruined the nation of Israel, but is reminded that God came through in a miraculous way! We can still trust Him with not only our souls, but with every situation in life.
Ascend in Faith
#6 - Psalm 123 • September 30, 2018 • John Anderson
When we have a high view of God we'll have the correct view of man. With eyes of faith we must look past the turmoil within us and the trouble all around us to the God who controls all things according to His plan for mankind. Where man rules, God overrules!
Ascending From Evil Surroundings
#3 - Psalm 120 • September 23, 2018 • John Anderson
From the first of the Ascension Psalms, the hymn writer lets us know that we can still worship in evil surroundings. The very things that made him cry out to God in prayer still attack our lives today. God still answers - sometimes slowly, sometimes swiftly, but always sovereignly.
Ascending Obediently (Pt 2)
#2 - 2 Samuel 6 • September 16, 2018 • John Anderson
In part two of this message, we continue to look at David's worship as it relates to his returning the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. We learn from his example that God's work must be done in God's way if it is to have God's blessing. Once David proceeded scripturally, he could then praise shamelessly!
