As we continue to explore the prayer dedicating the temple, what does that prayer reveal about its purpose? Was the temple merely a way to encourage Israel’s worship of the Lord or did God direct them (and us) towards something more?
Solomon prayed for victory, but does his prayer mean whatever “victories” we want are just a prayer away?
Failure and forgiveness. It’s in the center of Solomon’s temple prayer and it is in the center of our actions and God’s response to them.
As the Temple built to worship God was dedicated, King Solomon stopped and prayed to the Lord. In the king’s prayer, we are pointed to truths about God is, what He does for us and how we can come before Him today.
Can we experience God’s peace even in the midst of discouragement? David contemplates this in the last part of Psalm 4.
We’re called to feel peace and yet anger can boil up so easily in the midst of the turmoils of life. What do we do with that as we seek to follow Jesus?
Do you feel a lack of peace in life? Join us as a we start a series exploring Psalm 4 and what it tells us about true peace. This week: what about situations when we are humiliated and attacked?
When God places donkeys in our lives, do we pay attention? Or do we convince ourselves that our actions don’t really matter and so we can do whatever we want?
As we continue exploring the story of Balaam, a man who teetered between listening to the Lord and listening to the world around him, we consider how God uses people (and donkeys) like us.
Talking donkeys? Paid prophets? What’s going on here? Balaam and his donkey (Numbers 22) help us to think about facing temptations and living faithfully as we start a new series tonight. In the series, we’ll look at this man who teetered between listening to the Lord and listening to the world around him and see the ways we struggle with the same.
