Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!


Why Scripture?

 

Faithfulness

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:25-26)

God's Care

Have Faith

Persevering and hoping in God when the circumstances by themselves seem bleak and insurmountable.

His Love Endures
| Walt Harrah
God has always been trustworthy, and history is full of His acts of power, and His display of deliverance. And each time He intervenes, praise is the appropriate response.

Convinced Of This
| Walt Harrah
The fact that God gave up His only Son to redeem us shows the lengths He will go to bring us safely home. We are held in His hands, and can rest in that truth.

Prayer For The Future
| Walt Harrah
God's sovereignty. We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future.

God Has Never Failed Us Yet
| Walt Harrah
God is on our side, and watches over us. He never falls asleep, and at just the right time, he rescues and delivers.

Think About His Love
| Walt Harrah
A wise person recalls the goodness of God, and how God intentionally loves on us.

We Trust In The Lord
| Walt Harrah
The world around us tempts us with a myriad of choices to place our trust in. The only sure place for our trust is in the Lord Himself.

I Will Not Fear
Walt Harrah
With God on our side, we have an advantage that the world knows nothing of, and His presence means that we can trust instead of fretting. Fear is a warning light that we are not trusting.

Unchanging God
Isaac Watts
Everything around us may change, but the God we worship is immutable. It is not possible for him to improve, age, or morph. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. God will always be faithful. He cannot be anything else.
