2 Corinthians 5
In this study we're going to be looking at and studying our future home. Our faith in what God has promised absolutely increases when we realize that the grave is not our home.
Psalm 39 tells me a lot about the Lord and about myself. What is my conduct? Why should I guard it? The Bible speaks a lot about the tongue and what is said. The tongue is the only instrument that gets sharper with use. David watches the wicked prosper and basically says, "I'm going to watch my conduct with what I say, even retrain it with a muzzle while the wicked are before me."
It's a historical fact: Christ Rose From The Dead! The grave simply could NOT hold Him. Who has not gathered around the bedside or graveside of a loved one to say goodbye? This study addresses how only God can raise the dead.
We are going to begin a new topic in our Trials by Design Seriers on Prayer. Prayer is not a magical hocus pocus spell. It is not a demand. Prayer is a relationship with the God who made us and made us.
We have to understand the purpose of the book of Matthew. Matthew is written to the Jews and presents Christ as their Messiah. The Jews were looking for their Messiah to come. But they didn't want Christ. They wanted a king who could get them out of Roman rule. They wanted Christ to ride a warhorse, not a donkey. It does not mean the Kingdom is not going to come, but it is delayed for a while. God is not finished with the Jews. They ARE His people. In the meantime we can take all sorts of application from it. The Lord's prayer is to teach the disciples HOW to pray, not hocus pocus. It's not a formula.
Join us in our study of prayer in Philippians 4 and how prayer works and fits in our lives to reduce anxieties and worries.
There's not one person who goes through life without sorrows and griefs; even the Son of God had these trials. No one is exempt!
We each have something painful in our lives. And we all run to the Throne of Grace. 2 Cor 12 tells of Paul's wonderful privilege as well as Paul's thorn.
Trials bring us into conformity with God's will. If we're walking around and breathing we WILL have problems in our lives. Galatians 6.
Poor ol' Peter has been through a lot. Now we read how our Lord recommissions Peter into the ministry.John 21:15-25.
What is testing? How and why are we tested? Sufferings and testings can be for disciplinary purposes, for a refining process, for preventative measures, for learning obedience. It always provides a better and richer testimony for the Lord.
Problems are something that all people have. Things happen in our life that help us to know the Lord and ourselves better: Matthew 14:22
How people of God got through their problems, trials, tribulation, and martyrdom. The Lord put this prayer on my heart, for my friends and for those who listen on the internet...
Proverbs 1, God's Wisdom contrasted with the World's Wisdom.
Jonah's sin did not sneak up on him. Jonah has brought on all of his trials by himself by running away from the Lord. Jonah has to come face to face with himself as well as with the Lord.
Jonah continues to demonstrate the three Rs of Rebellion -- to resist God, to resent God, and to refuse God.
Continuing the book of Jonah (chapter three). The reluctant prophet (Jonah) was called by the Lord. He went, but he went the other way. Jonah was swept overboard, but God sent a big fish to swoop him up and keep him alive. Jonah made a big vow and trusts in the Lord. Jonah is thankful and understands God supplies for all our needs. Here is Jonah's second call. Did Jonah learn his lesson?
1 Samuel 16:1-13
If we knew where the roads of our lives came together, would we pay more attention? God wastes nothing in our lives. He knows what He is doing! God uses time to bring about what He has already decided to do!
1 Samuel 16:14-23
It's not WHAT we look like ... it's what we are. Our looks will fade. God looks at our inward spiritual nature. Others may misunderstand us, but God understands and loves us perfectly in spite of ourselves.
1 Samuel 17, Part One
David does not have a clue about his great calling.Saul had won many battles by God's hand, but now he is self-willed, disobedient, arrogant, and prideful.
1 Samuel 17, Part Two
This is the Story of David and Goliath. Every child who has ever sat in a Sunday School class has heard this story. But as grown up Christians we need to see more than a giant fight. We also have to look at God's unseen hand directing David's life as well as Goliath's life. It takes the eye of faith to look above the circumstances of our lives and see God's guiding hand in ALL things.
1 Samuel 18
David was the instrument that God used in His own Sovereignty. We see more and more where Saul is becoming more deranged and how David is being elevated in all of Israel.
1 Samuel 19
Saul knew the Lord was with David. Saul's mind became more suspicious and envy was the result. In this chapter we see God restrain evil.
1 Samuel 20
David finds himself to be a fugitive, proving that just because someone has a mission and ministry from the Lord that life is not a bowl of cherries!
1 Samuel 21
Dr. Lacy Couch from her Thinking Biblically series: As far as Saul is concerned David is public enemy #1. David is on the RUN!
1 Samuel 22 This is a exciting chapter. It has high drama. There are a lot of things we simply will not understand because they are directed from Heaven. Nonetheless we have to accept what we read though we may not understand the totality.
1 Samuel 23-24
When we read the Bible we must see God's unseen eyes in all the details because God knows where He is taking each one of us. We need to remember that! David had a wonderful opportunity to kill King Saul, but he didn't. David gained victory over himself.
1 Samuel 25 David doesn't look like the 'David' we saw in the last chapter. He takes matters into his own hands. He forgot who he was. We can do that too! Something horrible comes along and we fall apart and forget we are a child of God.
1 Samuel 26
David has another opportunity to take Saul's life again and again he does not! David wrote Psalm 54 in reference to what is going on in 1 Samuel 26.
1 Samuel 27
Last week we read where David spared Saul's life. He did not touch the Lord's annointed! This week is a sad chapter in David's life. He had great control of himself, however, here in this chapter he falls into despair and fear. David is running afraid.
1 Samuel 28-30
Israel and the Philistines are going to have a huge battle. David has a HUGE problem because David is with the Philistines. David had made decisions based on his fears! David is probably in more danger than at any other time in his life.
1 Samuel 31
This book started with the birth of Samuel. It ends with the death of Saul. Samuel did not fail in his ministry; he was faithful to the end. This is not true of Saul. Saul was self-willed.
Why "Christian Psychology" and "Christian Psychiatry" are oxymorons and how it impacts us today in such subtle ways we might not even recognize.
Dr. Lacy Couch continues the series by examining how Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow theories impacted our culture in ways that are incalcuable.
