Psalm 33

March 10, 2020

In Psalm thirty-three, we’re reminded of the importance of worship. The Psalmist not only gives reasons for praise – but also ways to do so. Praising God should be a reflexive action of every Christian - we shouldn’t even have to think about it!

Today we wrap up pastor Al’s look at Psalm thirty-one. This Psalm is written by David as a plea to God to protect him from those who sought to kill him. I suppose there are people who think they can handle any situation on their own, That’s called “moxie” by a lot of people, but it’s foolishness to think we can escape the efforts of our enemies without the power of almighty God!

Persecution is a struggle for us all!  No one likes to be hated or thought poorly of, that’s for sure. But the world hated Jesus and as His followers it will hate us too.  How do we handle this? The persecution of God’s people is an ages-old problem. Psalm thirty-one is a case in point. God helps his people – not just when persecuted – but through all kinds of struggles.

We’ll meet you in Psalm thirty today. In this Psalm, David writes of how he fell into the sin of self-reliance and God’s loving response. It’s very helpful to learn how God, in His love, turns David back from self-reliance to relying on the Lord.

Pastor Al is currently taking us on a wonderful journey through the Psalms, and today we’ll stop once again in Psalm twenty-nine. God’s voice is portrayed as a powerful thunderstorm here. It’s only but a mere example. For the power of God’s voice is far greater.

Psalm twenty-eight is a prayer that begins with a plea for an answer. It points out the same struggle you and I have in waiting on the Lord. And in this Psalm we’ll be encouraged that God does hear our prayers.

Today we continue in the Psalms with a look at Psalm twenty-seven. Is it really possible to have God as the priority of our lives and the answer to all our fears, with so many competing voices and responsibilities? There are certainly a lot of choices available when it comes to what we do with our lives. Some are a lot better than others.  We join pastor Al in Psalm twenty-seven, beginning in verse five.

Though we have little control over those around us, or the way those around us live, how we respond to them is something we can control.  We’ll learn how on today’s edition of The Dwelling Place, with a look at Psalm twenty-six and twenty-seven.  Pastor Al Pittman's teaching today will give us practical insight on how to be a witness to the unbelieving world around us.

Many have their opinions on how we’re to live – but because we love the Lord – it’s our desire to live in a way that pleases him – and in the end we will be vindicated. And that’s the focus of Psalm twenty-six.
February 26, 2020
Often we pray “Lord take this away”, but should we immediately think in those terms? Or is there something else in play? Is what we’re praying for God to take away the very thing that will make us stronger or more holy? Psalm twenty-five will answer those questions for us.

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. They covet your prayers for their family and ministry as they endeavor to live a life pleasing to the Father.
