The Thrill of Hope - #4 - CPR for the Soul

AdventinthePsalms.jpg

There are times in our life when we feel like God has left us.  There are times in our life when we feel like God has left the building, that God has abandoned us and even turned his back on us.  There are times in our life when might even feel like God has become the enemy.  This psalm, Psalm 85, is a prayer for those times.

There are times in our life when we feel empty, dry, tired, and nothing left. There are times in our life when we struggle to peel ourselves out of bed.  There are times in our life when we’ve got nothing life and we need some restoration and revival. This psalm, Psalm 85, is a prayer for those times.

There are times when we look at the world around us and see all the bad stuff going on – the wars, the racism, the hostility, the shootings, the bombings and we just cry out to God about it.  There are times in our life when we look at the morality of the world around us and just cry.  There are times in our life when we look at the Christian church and see all the false teachings and just weep.  There are times when we look around and see so many people not believing the message or leaving the message behind and it just breaks our heart.  This psalm, Psalm 85, is a prayer for those times.

The Thrill of Hope - #1 - The Long Wait

Nobody likes to wait and it has only gotten worse.  In this day when we can get just about anything on demand.  If we want to watch a movie, go rent it from iTunes; go watch it on Netflix.  If you want something, just get on Amazon and you can have just about anything that same day, without even leaving the comfort of your own home.  We just pop some food in the microwave and voila, it’s done.  Nobody likes to wait and its only gotten worse.

In this evening meditation, we learn from Abraham and God’s Word how to wait on God to keep his promises, no matter how long it may take. We take a hot air balloon ride over Abraham’s life and see how God helped through his long wait.
