“Our God” Series
"Our God" Video Series
In light of these uncertain days, we thought it would be helpful to invest a few minutes examining some important truths about our God: truths that bring comfort, peace, hope, and joy to God’s people. Join us for these 10 to 15 minute video clips with our Bible teacher, Dr. David Hoffeditz.
Psalm 1: "Our God Who Gives True Happiness"
Our current quarantine has a way of causing us to reevaluate life. Things that we traditionally looked to for happiness, such as a nice dinner out or a shopping spree, are no longer available. Instead, many people are asking, “Where is happiness?” in the midst of this social distancing exercise. Psalm 1 answers this important question. Posted 4/7/20.
Psalm 7: "Our God Who Defends"
If you have been mistreated, cheated, or misrepresented, be assured that God knows. He will eventually vindicate His people. In Psalm 7, the psalmist’s plea to God for help turns to a praise. He assures that we can turn to our Lord in confidence that He will deliver! Posted 4/14/20.
Psalm 11: "Our God Who Rescues"
In our present chaos, “normality” seems non-existent. Consequently, numerous companies are having a difficult time fulfilling their “brand promises”. Whether that pledge entails speedy delivery, an incredible dining experience, or well-stocked shelves, our current circumstances continually to demonstrate many firms’ inability to stand by their word. Thankfully, we serve a God who is not bound by unforeseen disasters such as COVID-19. Instead, His promises are based upon His character. Psalm 11 reminds us that our God is not only truthful and loving, but He is also all-powerful (omnipotent) – able to fulfill His vows. Posted 5/12/20.
Psalm 13: Our God Whom We Can Trust"
Have you asked the Lord “how long?” in this midst of the quarantine? \If so, you are not alone. In fact, the psalmist asks the Lord a series of four “how longs?” in Psalm 13. This repetition highlights the exasperation of the psalmist. And yet, the psalmist gently reminds us that we need to trust the Lord. He, alone, is worthy of our praise! Posted 4/1/20.
Psalm 18: "Our God Who Strengthens"
Psalm 19: "Our God Who Reveals Truth"
These difficult times are laced with mixed messages. Conflicting and confusing announcements only increase one’s anxiety. Thus, it is a great comfort to know there is a message that is clear, consistent, faithful, and true. In Psalm 19, the psalmist explores these incredible and reassuring messages the Lord provides by the way of His Creation and His Word. Come explore these words of assurance; words desperately needed in this chaotic world. Posted 4/28/20.
Psalm 23: "Our God Who Comforts and Leads"
One of the most loved passages of Scripture is Psalm 23. These six verses have resonated throughout the ages. This psalm brings comfort . . . comfort in knowing that our Good Shepherd protects and provides for His sheep. Posted 4/21/20.
Psalm 30: "Our God Who Restores"
An event as traumatic as a coronavirus has a way of reminding us that we are not self-sufficient. Though he wasn’t burdened by a pandemic, King David learned a valuable lesson through the experience of a 3-day plague. In confessing his sin, David calls for God’s people to praise the Lord. While our troubles are temporary, God’s favor and our opportunity to praise Him are forever! Posted 4/14/20.
Psalm 97: "Our God Reigns"
Psalm 100: "Our God Who is Faithful"
The great reformer, Martin Luther, observed: “We cannot give God anything; for everything is already His, and all we have comes from Him. We can only give Him praise, thanks, and honor.” This is exactly what the psalmist declares in Psalm 100. Even in the midst of life’s difficulties, we have a God who is worthy of all our praise. He has not forsaken us. Instead, He provides, sustains, and guides us. Posted 5/19/20.
Psalm 110: "Our God Who Keeps His Promises"
Psalm 110 is arguably one of the most fascinating psalms in the psalter. Due to its theological richness, it is not surprising that this psalm is the most frequently quoted or referenced Old Testament passage in the New Testament! Come explore this royal psalm with us . . . a psalm that reminds us that our King is the Promise Keeper. Posted 4/21/20.
Psalm 121: "Our God Cares"
What a comfort to know that our Lord is not some old man who wound the clock and now is too busy to care about us. Instead, the Transcendent One is intimately involved in our lives. Psalm 121 serves as a “psalm of comfort . . . a psalm that reiterates this personal God cares for us! Posted 4/1/20.
Psalm 146: "Our God Who is Worthy of Praise"
