Rediscovering the Greatness of God: God's Goodness

From the sermon series Rediscovering the Greatness of God.

Sermon text: Psalm 34

I will bless the LORD at all times;
     his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the LORD;
     let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
     and let us exalt his name together!
I sought the LORD, and he answered me
     and delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
     and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him
     and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the LORD encamps
     around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
     Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
     for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
     but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
Come, O children, listen to me;
     I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
What man is there who desires life
     and loves many days, that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil
     and your lips from speaking deceit.
Turn away from evil and do good;
     seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous
     and his ears toward their cry.
The face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
     to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears
     and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
     and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
     but the LORD delivers him out of them all.
He keeps all his bones;
     not one of them is broken.
Affliction will slay the wicked,
     and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
The LORD redeems the life of his servants;
     none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

Rediscovering the Greatness of God: God's Power

From the sermon series Rediscovering the Greatness of God.

Sermon text: Psalm 21

O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices,
and in your salvation how greatly he exults!
You have given him his heart s desire
and have not withheld the request of his lips.
For you meet him with rich blessings;
you set a crown of fine gold upon his head.
He asked life of you; you gave it to him,
length of days forever and ever.
His glory is great through your salvation;
splendor and majesty you bestow on him.
For you make him most blessed forever;
you make him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the LORD,
and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.

Your hand will find out all your enemies;
your right hand will find out those who hate you.
You will make them as a blazing oven
when you appear.
The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath,
and fire will consume them.
You will destroy their descendants from the earth,
and their offspring from among the children of man.
Though they plan evil against you,
though they devise mischief, they will not succeed.
For you will put them to flight;
you will aim at their faces with your bows.

Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength!
We will sing and praise your power.

Rediscovering the Greatness of God: God's Knowledge

From the sermon series Rediscovering the Greatness of God.

Sermon text: Psalm 139

O LORD, you have searched me and known me!
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
     you discern my thoughts from afar.
You search out my path and my lying down
     and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
     behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.
You hem me in, behind and before,
     and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
     it is high; I cannot attain it.

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
     Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
     If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
     and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
     and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
     and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
     the night is bright as the day,
     for darkness is as light with you.

For you formed my inward parts;
     you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
     my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
     intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
     the days that were formed for me,
     when as yet there was none of them.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
     How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
     I awake, and I am still with you.

Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!
     O men of blood, depart from me!
They speak against you with malicious intent;
     your enemies take your name in vain.
Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD?
     And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
I hate them with complete hatred;
     I count them my enemies.

Search me, O God, and know my heart!
     Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any grievous way in me,
     and lead me in the way everlasting!

Rediscovering the Greatness of God: God's Presence

From the sermon series Rediscovering the Greatness of God.

Sermon text: Psalm 139:7-12

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
     Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
     If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
     and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
     and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
     and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
     the night is bright as the day,
     for darkness is as light with you.
