Praise The Lord

Psalm 150 From start to finish, the book of Psalms speaks of the greatness of our God. No wonder it ends with this simple passage focusing on worship! And what better timing to land here: after the American holiday of Thanksgiving and the global holiday of Christmas!

A New Song


Psalm 149 Music is always changing. What is today “classic rock” was once new rock and roll. New instruments, new uses of older instruments. What is now considered “classical” was once new, contemporary compositions for orchestra and voice. Often, the new music was disliked, but it lasted. The psalmist, 3,000 years ago, called his readers […]

His Never Ending Love


Psalm 136 If you have been around BBC for long, you likely know my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. It’s not because the Cowboys are playing. Nor is it because of the turkey. It’s not even because of the green bean – white corn casserole my wife makes! All those are great, but I like it […]

From the Heavens and Earth… Praise!


Psalm 148  Looking at the night sky in the high desert is amazing. No lights to hinder the view; no clouds or haze to knock out the light of the more dim stars. And all those stars – and planets, and moons, and galaxies, and nebulae, and everything else came from the hand of God. […]

What Has he Done?


Psalm 145 We often hear about “head faith” vs. “heart faith,” usually in the context of a person’s “real” salvation. I don’t believe such a distinction exists in the Bible, but I will abuse the phrase here to remind us of an important truth: Do we point to specific ways God has worked in, through, […]

Let’s Retaliate! (“Don’t get mad, get even!”)


Psalm 144  This last week, John MacArthur made a public comment about the well-known author and speaker Beth Moore. The firestorm that followed was fascinating to watch. Many supported MacArthur. Many supported Moore and attacked MacArthur for his words and/or his tone. Some attacked those who supported MacArthur, others attacked those who supported Moore. Few […]

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made


Psalm 139:13-24  Next Step Women’s Center provides a number of services, but all of them rise out of a sanctity-of-life world view. Such a view is not new, however.  Nearly 1,000 years before Christ, David wrote about God’s hand knitting him together in the womb, and that he was “fearfully and wonderfully made.” What do […]

Where He Is and What He Knows


Psalm 139:1-12  “Let me tell you a secret… but keep it to yourself!” We have all likely been part of a conversation like that. Sometimes we have conversations about things that need to stay confidential (I label them as “cone of silence” stuff), and sometimes we have or know secrets that shouldn’t be secret. One […]

God’s Purpose for Me (and You!)


Psalm 138  A popular evangelistic tract starts with “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.” The first half is absolutely true! However, I wonder what people think of when they hear the second part. Health? Wealth? Lack of trouble in life? Peace within the home? It all depends on how we […]

Why Can’t We All Just Get Along


Psalm 133  “They’ll know we are Christians by our squabbling.” Okay, that’s not how it goes, but in the Christian community, it seems like it sometimes. Of course, we will have differences, but nonetheless, Jesus prayed for our unity. Is it even possible? Join us as we tackle a short Psalm with a strong statement […]
