Coming out of this past season of sheltering and distress, it feels like it’s been years since we’ve had the fun, play, and sun of summer. However, in Jeremiah 31, God paints a picture of restoration and nourishment after a season of languish, and part of His restorative picture is song among His people! Throughout this series, we’ll explore the power of music by studying different Psalms across a wide variety of situations and themes.
Many of us think of God as temperamental, with a short fuse ready to blow up on us after our next mistake. The Bible shows us the exact opposite. Our God is patient; we can never out-sin His love and redemption is always available to us through His Son--Jesus.
We cannot avoid conflict, but we can control our response to it. Will we seek refuge through our earthly desires, or will we trust God and run to Him, allowing Him to be our refuge, strength, and fortress?
We live our lives at breakneck speeds, striving to be everything to everybody else, only to leave ourselves more tired and empty. But when we submit to Jesus as the Good Shepherd--Jehovah Rohi--we can find a peace and rest only He can offer.
Many of us are in a rhythm that’s leaving us feeling frustrated and confused; we’re “off-beat.” Yet, if we allow it, God’s Word can interrupt our unhealthy rhythms and get us in sync with His heart and desires for us.
Worship isn’t something we’re supposed to do only once a week on Sundays. God created worship to soak into every area of our lives during every hour of every day.
