 As we look around the world today, we see chaos, anger, mis-information galore, and a significant number of deaths due to COVID-19.  As we see this, it would be easy for us to scratch our head in confusion, and wonder why.  The Psalmist Asaph went through this struggle, as we’re about to see, and it’s interesting to notice his conclusions.

As Solomon struggled to lead Israel in a Godly way, he realized that his leadership skills were not enough - He needed God’s help. That’s also true for you and me, as we struggle to get through the pandemic. We may not have the huge responsibility Solomon had, but we still should rely on God for everything we encounter in our everyday lives.

There’s a misconception that many new Christians have. They somehow think that since they are now saved, all the troubles in life will suddenly disappear. As we know, that’s hardly the case. In fact, it is usually the opposite that takes place - the trials increase. But the truth, God will use the tough times in life to increase our faith in Him. Let’s join pastor Al Pittman for today’s study in Acts chapter fourteen, titled “The Rough Side of the Mountain”.

We are continuing a series in the Psalms on today’s broadcast, as we look at Psalm seventy-two. In the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s good to be reminded of what life in Christ really means. Psalm seventy-two is one of only a couple of the Psalms written by King David’s son, Solomon. It’s a beautiful testimony of God’s power and love.

Today we continue pastor Al’s series through the Psalms by taking another look at Psalm seventy-one. As we grow older, things certainly change, don’t they? Climbing a flight of stairs used to be a second thought, and suddenly it can really become a chore. Well, physical changes side, one thing that older age brings is wisdom. The older generation has a responsibility to point the younger men and women in the right direction - the Godly direction! That’s the theme here in Psalm seventy-one.
