"God is Worthy of Our Praise"


Tonight (Wednesday, 6/14, 7:00 pm), gather with your Calvary Chapel family in the Holy Grounds Cafe’ or on our website (www.calvaryinv.com

), Facebook, and Youtube (Calvary Inverness) as Ernie Todd continues our three-year journey through the Bible in the book of Psalms (26-31).

David, the King of Israel, was a musician, prophet, warrior, and author of many Psalms. Everything he did flowed from the heart and devotion he had for God. As you read his writings, you can feel the emotions that he was dealing with at the time. He had mountaintop moments and deep valleys of doubt, depression, and despair. No matter how low he got, he never lost faith in God.
Sometimes he wrote when God seemed a million miles away, yet he knew the fault lay with him. At those times, he would pen a Psalm expressing his thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. And, like the other authors of the Bible, David included his hope in God's promises.

In the six chapters Ernie will lead us through, King David writes of the many troubles, tribulations, and trials that he and God’s people have and will continue to face. They are also a precursor to the persecution the Jews will face during the seven-year Tribulation.
Throughout David's trials and troubles, he kept his mind, heart, and eyes fixed on the Lord. Therefore, he could live above the spiritual fray that attempted to derail his faith in God. And by doing so, he unlocked a precious tool for the believer who is or will encounter similar troubles.
The tool that David shares in Psalm 26-31 is that the secret to thriving during trial

When David was running for his life from his Father-in-law, King Saul, he wrote these
words to quell his rampant rollercoaster of emotions and something that we can use today.
He wrote, “I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies” (Ps 18:1-3).

Please pray that this three-year journey through the Word of God will be received by open hearts that long to grow in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus. Moreover, He would do deep and abiding work in and through us for a world in desperate need of a Savior.
In His Strong Love,
