Today on The Dwelling Place. We’re going to study Psalm sixty-three and sixty-four, and get a great picture of King David, and his trust isn God. At this point in his life, David had committed some terrible sins - adultery and murder just to name two, and he’s feeling guilty about them. Yet, we see a picture of a man after God’s own heart.

today on The Dwelling Place, Pastor Al Pittman will examine Psalms fifty-five and fifty six. And we’ll gain some biblical direction in regard to how we deal with the problems we see around us. This comes from David's observation of the world in which he lived. And as we’ll see today - the Psalms remind Christians of their sure foundation in Christ.

Today we’ll continue our study of Psalms fifty five. This beautiful Psalm was written by King David to express the love He had for God, and at the same time, the personal strife he faced due to the enemies who wanted to destroy him. We all face the ups and downs of everyday life, and though we may never face the dangers David faced, God will still care - and He’ll be there for us!

It’s a very powerful experience when a Christian first realizes that God is real, He is here with us, and He’s working in our lives! The presence of God is the topic of Psalm fifty five, a Psalm written by David to praise the Creator for being present in times of trial. Too many Christians today think their problems will disappear when Christ comes into their lives. King David is a great example for us to emulate, when it comes to turning to God in the tough times.

Our relationship with God is much like a recipe - there are certain steps we must take to not only establish that relationship, but also to maintain it. Pastor Al is currently taking us verse by verse through the Psalms, and today we’ll wrap up Psalm fifty-three, and cover Psalm fifty-four as well.

As we look at Psalms fifty-two and fifty-three, we’ll be reminded of God’s amazing love and protection for His children. David wrote this Psalm, and his motivation was the way God protected him from his enemies. We may not have armies breathing down our necks trying to kill us, but we do have enemies.

Today on The Dwelling Place, Pastor Al Pittman will remind us that God has the greatest memory of all. He made a covenant with His people and has always stayed faithful. Our scripture text is Psalm fifty two today today, a Psalm of David in which David extolls God’s virtues, and warns his enemies of God’s power to protect His people.

One person we can rely on to always tell the truth and be there when we need Him is God. How foolish it would be for us to question God’s existence and His power! That’s the theme of Al’s study today in Psalm fifty-one, as we once again see David’s remorse over his sin with Bathsheba. 
April 16, 2020
This Psalm is not only well known for its content, but also for what happened to inspire David to write it. David wrote these beautiful words when he was feeling great remorse over the terrible sin he committed with Bathsheba, and his efforts to cover his tracks. We’ve all messed up, but probably not to the extent that we see here from David.

Psalm fifty-one was written in direct response to David’s moral failure with Bathsheba. You know, many people today try to explain away their sin.  But God wants us to come clean, and agree with Him. Our series is in the Psalms, but today, pastor Al will spend most of our time together in Second Samuel eleven, as we look at the facts behind what went on that night when David saw Bathsheba taking a bath.

If you enjoy baking, you know that following a recipe in the correct order is essential to success. You wouldn’t put an empty cake pan in the oven for half an hour and then take it out, pour in the cake mix and expect to have a cake, right? Our relationship with God is much like a recipe - there are certain steps we must take to not only establish that relationship, but also to maintain it.
