scripture Psalms 146:1-10

The Psalmists' exhortations to praise can be discouraging if not viewed in light of the Gospel. In this message, Christopher Ash turns to the book of Psalms to lead us into a deeper of understanding of who God is. Psalm 146 demonstrates how the typical introduction of asking, “How’s your praise life?” is inadequate. Instead, the Psalms invite us to see how Jesus rightfully and perfectly fulfilled these exhortations to praise, enabling us to live a life of praise to God as well.

A Call For Thankfulness

It's not uncommon to hear people challenge themselves to "be more thankful." For the Christian, a grateful heart is a good measure of the work of grace in our hearts. Thankfulness doesn't begin and end with our circumstances, however. Because the experience of God's grace produces thankfulness that is grounded in the character of God, Christian gratitude doesn't depend on the good things that we have or lack, and the Christian can give thanks in all things.

The book of Esther describes King Ahasuerus as an important man. As we study Esther together, however, it is important to remember that all authority on earth is derived from the authority of our sovereign Lord. The power, influence, and authority of King Ahasuerus fades to nothing when we consider Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

According to Romans 2:4, God's kindness is meant to lead us to repentance. Alistair Begg considers examples throughout Scripture that illustrate God's merciful patience toward sinners who deserve nothing but immediate judgment. In meditating on the patience of God, we are reminded of His great goodness in providing a Savior for sin and challenged to pray with patience and persistence for those who do not know Christ.

It is often in the worst of circumstances when the Christian must affirm the unwavering faithfulness of God. Alistair Begg encourages us that when hard times come, we can bring to mind the faithfulness of God displayed perfectly in Christ Jesus and have hope. By looking to Christ, who is acquainted with our sorrows, Christians can display mourning coupled with trust in the promises of God.

When we are tempted to become discouraged, and when we allow the negative circumstances of life to press in upon us, one of our great anecdotes is to consider Him who endured humiliation by sinful men, but then was exalted to the highest throne. We will not grow weary and lose heart when we fix our eyes away from ourselves and on Jesus.

When hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes or other disasters occur, we tend to think that God has fallen asleep on the job. Why would He let something like this happen? This timeless question finds its answer in God's providential and loving care. This is a God who plants His footsteps in the sea and the winds and the waves obey Him. This message was given in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, but an understanding that God has loving reasons for all such events helps us rise above the storm, setting our minds and hearts on solid ground.
