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?

 

Trust

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)

Prayer changes things.

His Power Will Prevail

Trusting in God's power. God has promised to do the fighting. We do the trusting. Our hope is in His power, and in His faithfulness to act in protecting ways on our behalf, always looking out for our best interests.

Have Faith
| Walt Harrah
Persevering and hoping in God when the circumstances by themselves seem bleak and insurmountable.

Not What I Will
Walt Harrah
Just as Jesus said as he prayed to his Father, "Not my will but yours be done," so as followers of Christ we must submit and surrender to the will of God for us in everything.

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.

Be Still My Soul
Katharina von Schlegel
Regardless what the circumstances would suggest, God is in control. And with that truth firmly fixed in our minds we can rest, trusting that he will work out everything according to his plan, which is always for the best.

Be Thou My Vision

Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:25-26)

Strength of My Heart

God's sovereignty. We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future.

So Grateful

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." I Thessalonians 5:18

You might say that God is in the delivery business. Call on me in the day of trouble; I WILL DELIVER YOU, and you will honor me. Psalm 50:15

A Miracle For You
| Walt Harrah
Our God, who has all power, never faces any obstacle that he can't fix. He turns desert places into springs. Miracles are his "bread and butter." So we wait on him expectantly.

No More Night
| Walt Harrah
“God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”-- Revelation 7:17

Hallowed Be Your Name
Walt Harrah
Our God is a prayer-hearing God. Prayer is the means by which we commune with God and he with us. And the essentials of prayer are found in the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples.

Arise My Soul
Charles Wesley
When the Bible says "therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus," it means just exactly that. We can live guilt free lives because of what Christ has accomplished.

Everything I Need
| Walt Harrah
There's lots of desires we have that seem to be necessary. But only God can be an all-sufficient substitute, satisfying completely all the time, in every situation.

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.

The Awesome God Who Can
Walt Harrah
Our minds are finite. And our imaginations have a governor on them. We see through a glass dimly. But God has no such limitations. The One who created the heavens and the earth is able to do far more than we could ask or even think.

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.

Anything
| Walt Harrah
God is alive and well and full of power, and ready to act in ways that further his plans and purposes. Nothing stops him, or tops him. He is supreme in power and authority.

The Lord Is My Light
| Walt Harrah
When we trust in the Lord and look to Him to deliver, and His strength to protect, we have nothing to fear. It's all good.
