This is a tough Psalm for David. When we have troubles in our life, sometimes they are a consequence of our own actions even if we have repented and turned back toward God from the evil of the consequence. Absolam is attempting to steal David's throne by disrespecting his father David. Psalms are born in trials and troubles.
Will we learn to worship during these times? Will we trust God or become angry and depend on ourselves? As you learn with us to worship in Psalms, go read the story of David and Absolam. It is a tragedy for Absolam and David. But David, unlike Absolam, is restored. Why? Because David turned to the Lord, AS HE WAS BEING CHASED OUT OF HIS KINGDOM! Read the Psalm while reading the story. But look on your own life and make it your own through praying it back to the Lord. Absolam was in rebellion to God. His name means "Father of Peace". Peace in Hebrew has a very deep context to it. But the best peace we can have is peace with God through salvation and repentance. Absolam was not acting toward his father with peace nor with God. He was rebelling against two fathers! Will we? Join us for this wonderful Psalm to learn to worship which is our highest calling.

Exodus Chapter 4 Part 1 Are you an honest person?
Why do we need to study the Bible? Because God has given us the Word of God to reveal Himself to us. We discuss this fact in this podcast for pewsitters. God is outside space and time. How can we, a created being for God's purposes, understand a God, Who can create the universe by speaking it into existence? Through the Bible. WOW think about that! Isn't that truth exciting? Let's ask more questions.
Are we experiencing revelation in your bible study? Several questions we must ask ourselves.
If you are not in God's word, you can trick yourself into believing what you are doing or changing in your life is according to what God wants, but maybe our motives and maybe what WE desire vs. what God desires. Is this the way God wants us to approach the Bible? No.
We will see several progressions of Moses that we can apply to our life:
Thus, honesty to God, to ourselves and others, is paramount in our life. Psalm 32 discusses deceit in the context of sin. Blessed are those whose sin is covered!
We are made in the image of God. We reflect His righteousness out to the world. But where do we get His righteousness? From Him, and the Bible. How do we line up with the plans and purposes of God?
Do you ask questions of God from the Bible, or do you question God? Big difference.
When we line up with God's plans and purposes such as Moses in Exodus 4, we will have revelation from God. So how soon do you want to do this, and what will it cost you?

Are you part of God's household? Our eternal destiny matters on our answer. Yes, He does have a house. It is the universe and all that is in it. It is His House and His Rules. ISIAH 66:1 1 Thus says the LORD, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest? 2“For My hand made all these things, Thus, all these things came into being,” declares the LORD. “But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.
Podcast For Pewsitters presents the "treadmill of NEVER ENOUGH". Does this title make you tired already? The demands of the world don't change once our eyes are opened to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In fact, they may just get WORSE! Why? Because when we realize that we are serving God Himself, then a greater weight is now upon us. But is this added weight from Christ or us? Isaiah 30:15 says: 15 For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, "In repentance and rest you will be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength. But you were not willing..."
What if we are a performance-based person? Running on the treadmill of life to make sure we are "something" in the world and hopefully leave a name for ourselves? Add God into this mix and we are on the treadmill of NEVER ENOUGH.
Ever feel pummeled? That life is throwing circumstances at you? Could these be trials and tests? If we put ourselves under the Kingdom of God seeking His will and to be pleasing to our King then these are indeed for our good. But what if we react wrongly or make a bad decision? What if a series of events start that you can’t stop and perhaps people reject you? Is God in this with you? This podcast is about Ric and Mary Joyner going through a pummeling time. Moses in Exodus 2 Part 5 has made a horrible decision to help God save the Hebrew people from Egypt. A major life change happens as a result. Ric and Mary experience several major life changes that hurt! Ever felt like this? Moses goes from “top of the world” to what appears to be the lowest job on Earth, and a new family, culture and leaving loved ones behind. This is painful, this is disorientating, this is sad. How will he ever recover? God is with Him. He is with us. Listen or watch with Ric and Mary how God moves for those who love Him and want to be Kingdom people. The bible study principle: "The Holy Bible invades our life" is real. We believe that God uses circumstances to reinforce what we are studying and thus is the reason for the pummeling! So the Lord is allowing you to experience the lessons of Scripture! And in the next few podcasts we will show you how this principle is working with people who decide to study the Holy Bible together especially as husband and wife.
