Worship Devotion – June 20th, 2021

150 150 Charles Su

Psalms 77:11-15

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old.

I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.

Your way, O God is holy. What god is great like our God?

You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

You with your arm redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph.

Our God works Wonders (v.11-14)

What a Beautiful Name

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God is holy. What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.”

In this Psalm, the Psalmist is praising God for his wondrous work. From his praise comes great truths about who God is. No god is great like our God (“You have no rival, You have no equal”). Our God is the God of Creation (“You were the word at the beginning”). In response, we give all the praise and glory to God (“Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory, Yours is the name above all names”).

Our God Redeems (v. 15)

Living Hope

“You with your arm redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph.”

Our God redeems! We know that through Jesus we have redemption and salvation (“Hallelujah, Praise the One who set me free”, “there’s salvation in Your name”). God does mighty works. We can put our hope of salvation in him (“Jesus Christ my living hope”).

Devotional Questions

  1. How has God worked in your life?
  2. Is your hope in salvation through Jesus?

Worship Devotion – June 13th, 2021

Worship is a response to the revelation of Jesus Christ through his word.  This is an opportunity to take some time to look at a passage of scripture and how the songs we will sing this Sunday are a response to that truth.  The songs will be linked below but, you can also listen to them on our Spotify Playlist.

Psalm 62:5-8

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.

He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.

Praise God! He is our Refuge! (v. 7-8)

Be Thou My Vision

“On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.”

God is a refuge for us! We can trust him at all times! We don’t need the world’s wisdom (“Be thou[God] my wisdom, and thou my true word”), its riches and praise (“Riches I head not nor man’s empty praise”), or is promises (“May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s sun”). We find all of these things in God. Our Salvation! Our Glory! Our mighty rock! Our Refuge!

Praise God! He is our Strength! (v. 5-6)

Cornerstone

“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.”

We will not be shaken because God is our rock, our salvation, and our fortress. We have confidence and strength not from our own power but through his power (“Christ alone cornerstone, weak made strong in the Savior’s love”). We trust in Him alone. Our Hope is in Him alone.

Devotional Questions

  1. What is your refuge? Who/What do you turn to for hope?
  2. Are you relying on God’s strength or your own?
