Trust is something we really can’t live without. We have to trust our fellow motorists to not cross the centerline and hit us. We have to trust the doctor to know the right method to treat what’s wrong with us. Do you trust God? We’ll be looking today at Psalms nineteen.

Psalm nineteen contains some brilliant truths about our Lord, and in fact you may recognize the popular words contained in the final verse of Psalm nineteen - “Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart, be accepted in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer”.Today’s message also contains some very frank thoughts from pastor Al concerning homosexuality.

One of the most difficult aspects of God’s reality to grasp is the fact that He is indeed a real being....our Heavenly Father. Many people prefer to think of God as simply a “cosmic presence” or an “aura”, but He is the one who created you and me in His image! Today on The Dwelling Place, Pastor Al leads us in a study of Psalm eighteen, as we discover the presence of God in every aspect of our lives.

Today, we will once again be in Psalm eighteen. These fifty verses cover a number of topics, from praise and worship, sowing and reaping, and may others. If you’re looking for a bit of encouragement as we begin the new year, Psalm eighteen is a great place to find it!

In Psalm eighteen, the Psalmist recounts God’s great faithfulness. It’s something we come to expect from God but often our circumstances speak otherwise. When you get in a tight spot, do you always remember that God is with you? We need constant reminders, don't we?

In Psalm seventeen, David expressed a great desire to not transgress with the tongue. There are many references in God's word to the power of the tongue to do good and to do evil. James liked it to a fire!

Some in the church today struggle in loving one another.  Psalm sixteen has the remedy, and it’s where we’ll be today on The Dwelling Place  So what’s the remedy for loveless saints? Can there be such a thing? The Psalmist would say those who delight in God would delight in His people too.

Let’s head over to Psalm fourteen today, where we observe our inability along with God’s great ability and ultimate triumph. The faith that saves is also a faith that produces a changed life. There is a vast array of ideas on what the life of a believer ought to look like.

Today we’ll return to our series of studies through the Old Testament book of Psalms. In Psalm ten, we read the words of David as he implores God to bring justice to his enemies. 
February 4, 2020
These wonderful words offer a summary of the reason to trust in the Lord in the face of a crumbling society. We have the benefit of gaining from David’s lifetime of learning. He faced severe difficulties in his early years - running for his life and hiding in caves.  Yet in all this - David found that the Lord was faithful.

About Al Pittman

Al was born in Panama City, Florida in 1955. His father was a career soldier, so the family traveled extensively. In 1973, when Al was seventeen years old, the family returned from a tour in Germany and settled in Colorado Springs. Soon after, Al realized God’s call on  his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band  called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975. 

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. 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. Al and Norma are the proud parents of three children, Renee, Nathan and Reggie, as well as proud grandparents.
