Disobedience Destroys part 2

October 4, 2022

Today on The Dwelling Place, we’ll begin a study in Psalm eighty, as we consider the question of why we don’t always get an immediate answer when we pray. Has that ever bothered you?

References: Psalms 80

Our study through the Psalms takes us to Psalms seventy-nine and eighty today. Asaph wrote these Psalms as a lament for his nation's disobedience, and also to God’s loving kindness despite His people’s disobedience. It’s a history lesson, and at the same time, a lesson on God’s patience.

The aposlte Paul was uncomproi ising in his message - that grace is what saves us, and there is no work we can perform to obtain salvation. That message comes shinging throiugh in Acts chapter fifteen.

As we spend time with the Lord in his Word - we are directed to passages that may have special meaning for us at the moment. Guidance for the day, comfort to get through a trial - or a glimpse into the future that we are promised. Psalm seventy-nine speaks extensively about all the benefits of knowing God and knowing and following His precepts.

Are you a history buff? There are a lot of them around. Apparently Asaph was a history buff as well, because in Psalm seventy-eight, he gives us a review of the history of Israel. He does this to point out just how patient and loving God is toward man, despite our history of disobedience.

What defines an authentic Christian? Well, tools are important, knowing how to use them is important, and our promise of eternal life is a kind of diploma. When you find yourself in times of trouble, do you remember to seek the Lord’s guidance? Is it the first thing you think to do? That’s a real mark of an authentic Christian. Our scripture text for today’s program is Psalm seventy-eight.

Pastor Al begins a study today in Psalm seventy-eight. It’s a Psalm of Asaph that expresses frustration with God’s people, as they continually show an inability to trust God, despite the evidence before them. Obviously, this is a message that is very relevant today. We see it all around us - the obvious evidence of God’s presence, and the obvious rejection of that evidence.

Consistency and reliability are qualities we look for in our leaders. It isn’t always easy to find - especially in Washington D.C., because the people who tell us they’re trustworthy often are lying when they tell us! Well, one thing we can rely on to always tell the truth is the bible, and we can always rely on God to be there when we need Him.

Today we continue Pastor Al's series in the book of Acts. We're entering a nerw shapter today, as we look at chapter fifteen. This chapter details the Spirit of Grace.

If you enjoy building things, you know that following a set of instructions in the correct order is essential to success. If you perform “step A” before “step B”, you are likely to mess things up. The bible is our instruction manual for a happy and blessed life. Are you following the instructions carefully?

Today we’ll seek to cover another Psalm of Asaph, Psalm seventy six. Battles and wars are on everyone’s minds these day, what with our continuing efforts to eradicate terrorism. I’m sure you’ve seen the footage of our incredible weaponry at work. If you lined up every weapon we’ve ever used in every war, they wouldn’t come close to matching the power of God.
