“Blessed be God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Genesis 14:20 Lot’s decision to not stay near the safety of his uncle and the ongoing blessing of God now creates an opportunity for the breadth of the promise to Abram to be displayed in a very specific deliverance. Much of life creates messes […]

House of Prayer

One of the Valley of Vision prayers states: “In prayer I can intercede for my friends, ministers, sinners, the church, thy kingdom to come, with greatest freedom, ardent hopes…as a lover to the beloved.” Now think of praying with other brothers and sisters of Grace, interceding together for God’s will to be done in our lives […]

Lot chose for himself… GENESIS 13:11 Last week we saw the selfish side of Abram as he followed his natural instinct, carelessly putting his wife Sarai at risk, ending in a harsh rebuke and banishment from Pharaoh. This week is Lot’s turn, as he makes a decision that ultimately ends in tragedy for his family. […]

Now there was a famine in the land… GENESIS 12:10 Uh oh… With God’s words of blessing still ringing in his ears, Abram suddenly had reason to wonder about this “land of promise.” A famine? He had mouths to feed and flocks to care for. So just what were his options? Going down to Egypt […]

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go…so Abram went as the Lord told him.” GENESIS 12:1, 4 In between that “go” of God, and Abraham’s response of obedience, stands the grandest promise ever made to a human being – a plan so boldly audacious that only the imagination of Almighty God Himself could dream it […]

Sunday, July 2, 2017 Sermon Prep for Psalm 51

Last week, Erik Thoennes led us through Psalm 19, which C. S. Lewis considered the “greatest poem in the Psalter.” In Psalm 19, the psalmist expresses his wonder and delight in the revelation of God to mankind through His creation and through His Law.  David loves God’s Word, finding the law “more precious than gold,” […]

Sunday, June 25, 2017 Sermon Prep for Psalm 19

“Prayer is answering speech. God’s Word has not done its complete work until it evokes an answer from us. All our answers are prayers. The Psalms train us in this answering speech, this language that responds to all God’s creating and saving words targeted to our lives.” “We know almost nothing of the circumstances in […]

And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed… blessed… blessed…”  Matthew 5:2 and following Psalm 1 is considered an introduction to the Book of Psalms.  Charles Spurgeon calls it the “Preface Psalm, having in it a notification of the contents of the entire book.”  Eugene Peterson characterizes it as a “preface to prayer” and […]

The Psalter is a book of prayers rather than a prayer book. Its words leap to the page from the heart of man, racked by pain, jubilant with joy, despairing, aspiring, questioning, worshiping, but never ceasing to reach for God. The world changes, knowledge grows, but the heart of man remains as it has always […]
