"Waiting on the Lord" Through My Bible


Tonight (Wednesday, 6/21, 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 we continue our three-year journey through the Bible in the book of Psalms (32-37).

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.

In the six chapters before us this evening, 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.

The secret to thriving during trials and tribulations that David shares in Psalm 32-37 is to wait patiently, in expectation and anticipation, that God will come through and deliver you from or through those overwhelming circumstances.

James, the half-brother of Jesus, says it best when he wrote to Christians who had to endure severe persecution for their faith, “Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand” (Ja 5:7-8).

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,
