Do you know the Truth? part 2

June 10, 2020

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?

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.

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.

If you’re a parent - particularly if your children are young - you know all about the importance of patience. You can’t expect a two year old to take care of all of their daily needs so you patiently take care of them until they become self-sufficient. In much the same way, God has been patient with man. Despite our sin, He still takes care! That’s our topic today on The Dwelling Place

 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 in Psalm seventy-eight today. 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.

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. That’s the theme of Al’s study today in Psalm seventy-seven.

Our relationship with God is much like an instruction sheet - there are certain steps we must take to not only establish that relationship, but also to maintain it. And that takes disipline. Our scripture text is Psalm seventy-seven.

As we continue dealing with COVID-19 and all of its ramifications, we see powerful men in some very high places making decisions that greatly affect us. No matter how much power a man might have, it cannot match the power God possesses. That’s Asaph’s message in Psalm seventy six.

Al Pittman is taking us through the Psalms, and today we are going to finish our look at Psalm seventy-five, and begin a look at Psalm seventy-six. These Psalms of Asaph are Psalms of praise to God for delivering His people from trouble, and holding their enemies accountable.

With all the uncertainty of the times we live in, has there ever been a more important time than now for people to come to Jesus Christ? One thing is for certain as we make our way through life, we will face times of testing, and the unsaved around us will be watching to see how we react. That refining fire isn’t always fun is it?

In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
