Sovereign Over Us - November 2019

God’s sovereignty is simultaneously one of the most difficult and comforting doctrines. It leaves us with unanswered questions, unexplained emotions, and yet seeks to form us with unwavering assurance of God’s goodness and faithfulness. Though our “Why’s” don’t always get a detailed answer, we have a King who both “rules over all” (Ps 103:19) and loves us and knows us intimately. In fact, we have a God who loves us so much that sometimes He calls us to walk through various “valleys” for our own good!

Of course, this doesn’t always feel good, which is what the song “Sovereign Over Us” holds in tension and helps us express. Not to be suppressed, our God-given emotions may be just the very vehicle God uses for communicating His love to us in the midst of trying, or even tragic, circumstances. For His strength is sufficient to sustain us in our weakness (2 Cor 12:9-11).

Psalm34_18.png

Maybe you’re in a valley right now? As seen in our recent “Living Without” series, the Psalms provide us with gut-wrenching examples of crying out to our good, faithful, and sovereign God, who is the “lifter of the lowly” (Ps 145:14). He sees you. Loves you. Upholds you. Though His ways and His timing don’t always make sense to us (Is 55:8-9), perhaps He’s stirring within us a greater trust and dependence on Him that can only be learned through such trials. And perhaps our Father is drawing you, His child, closer and closer to Himself in intimate communion.

Whether we’ve been through valleys recently or not, Jesus promised that at some point we all will (Jn 16:33). How are you preparing now? How are you preparing to praise God in valley? It’s our hope that Biblically packed songs like this will help us cry out to God, and prepare us to trust and look to Him, even when the world seems to be caving in on us.

O Lord My Rock and My Redeemer - October 2019

On any given Sunday, when God’s people gather, we come from various places in our weeks. Some enter having celebrated joyous milestones like weddings and births. Some from the “status quo” in the regularity of life. And some come bearing the weight of work stresses, family tension, or real tragedies. In all of these situations, what do we need most? To gaze upon the glory of our God and Savior.

When the allures of this life draw us in, we’re reminded that “true delight is found in God alone.” When we casually approach the Lord for the 300th Sunday in a row, we’re reminded that His grace is “a well too deep to fathom.” And when we’re bogged down by life’s trials, we’re reminded that our Lord is our “Rock and Redeemer”, a strong shield and defender, who guarantees our refuge by His faithfulness. And ultimately, our hope lives in our risen Savior, Jesus Christ, who broke the bonds of our sin and shame, conquering the grave and death!

IMG_1052 Small.jpg

Modern hymn “O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer” helps us posture ourselves in three ways before God.

Verse 1: We begin by orienting our praise first to God’s good character and our desperate need for Him.

Verse 2 continues this thought by giving us vocabulary to claim God’s power to persevere under trial.

Verse 3: And of course, the hymn crescendos to look at Christ’s atoning death and glorious resurrection.

In light of our “Representation” in Christ we’ve been learning in Romans 5. His death is our death to sin. And his resurrection is our resurrection to new life. Here and for eternity. Let us cry out to God together as we sing.
