Songs of Praise


Tonight (Wednesday, 12/13, 7:00 pm), gather with your Calvary Chapel family in the main sanctuary or on our website (, Facebook, and YouTube (Calvary Inverness) as we continue our three-year journey through the Bible in the book of Psalms (135-142).

Psalms 135-142 are prayers and praises put to song to aid the people of God in their worship. Each author wrote from times of distress, fear, and frustration while simultaneously with hearts full of awe of who God is and what He has done.

One of the purposes of these songs was to help God's people focus their praise and adoration on what God has done rather than what they can do for Him.

Also, when overwhelmed by life's varied challenges, they can minister to their soul and fellow believers by singing about God's many promises to His people. And to be encouraged that God has always and will continue to fulfill His Word.

When one focuses on God's goodness and greatness, the problems that seem larger than life will fade into the background as the Lord takes His rightful place as the sovereign God of the universe and the lover of their soul.

King David, who authored six of the eight chapters (137-142), understood the comfort and strength imparted to those who allow God to be the centerpiece of their life.

While fleeing for his life from Saul, he penned these words: "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,
