Praise in Dire Circumstance

5/27/2022
David wrote Psalm 63 while fleeing from his son Absalom. In this terrible circumstance, the worst part was his separation from the place of worship. Instead of lamenting the seen, David lifted up praise with his entire being to the Unseen. His only petition was for God’s presence, proclaiming the lovingkindness of God as better than life. If we praise God in the moment of distress, the “with us” God will take care of the enemies. Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

From Hopelessness to Earnest Desire for God

5/26/2022
The word “desperate” has two meanings in English: the etymological meaning of the hopelessness and the more modern meaning of strongly desiring. Both of these senses occur in several spiritual vignettes in the Bible of people desperate for healing from God. Christians can become hopeless, but with God all things are possible. Our strength comes from Him, and our focus should be on Him, in praise. There is no problem that God cannot fix. VF-2073 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

Psalm 63: Offering Praise in the Wilderness

Bless God For All That He Has Done

5/18/2022
A study in 1st Peter focusing on the words “blessed be”. Peter was telling the saints in trial and tribulation in his day (and us today) that we are to eulogize God BECAUSE of His abundant mercy. He has given us hope, inheritance, salvation and reserved in Heaven a place for us. This pattern of eulogizing God is consistent throughout the Old and New Testaments. We are to first praise, worship and thank Him as a continual faith practice. Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com...

The Difference Is In The Blessing

The beginning of an excursion into teaching on the words bless and blessed. There are two words in the New Testament for bless: eulogia and makarios.

The Lost Self and the Journey Back

5/16/2022
The greatest threat to our nation is not the political system, but the self-deification of our younger generation. It is only in losing our selves to Christ that we can gain our true selves. If the pulpits in America have the mindset to preach the Word of God, we might see a turn from self, enthroned, to those selves looking to The Throne, praising Him for His amazing grace.

Drawn by Grace into the Wilderness

5/13/2022
There's no other way to grow in grace than to go through wilderness experiences. God's method is to draw us here, and once we’re here, He speaks to our hearts through His Word. If we're open to hear what He has to say, we will bear fruit for Him to enjoy, and looking back we will be able to sing a song of praise: praise for all the ways He has led us, having seen His faithfulness to meet our every need and His amazing grace to lead us from trouble to hope!

What Brings On the Wrath of God?

5/9/2022
God loves His children, but His wrath is provoked when people, in rebellion, fail to acknowledge Him. There are consequences to sin.

The outpouring of God's wrath lets us know that our trust is not in vain and His word will stand.

Your Attitude and Appetite Towards the Things of God

The starting point for the Christian is a right attitude and appetite towards the things of God. Tasting and seeing that the Lord is good creates an assurance that our unchanging state is that of being blessed: we will go through the valleys, and God will hear when we are asking our petitions. Applying our faith brings about an allegiance to God, which creates a greater appetite for Him, taking us full circle in ever increasing faith. VF-2209 Psalm 84 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

Our Insufficiency Made Sufficient in Christ

5/2/2022
When we find ourselves wrestling with feelings of insufficiency, focusing on what we lack instead of what we have, there is a lesson in the account of Jesus multiplying the loaves and fishes. When we yield our little to Him, He is able to bless it, break it and multiply it, turning our insufficiency into something sufficient. Just like the disciples, we can make the mistake of forgetting the times in the past when the Lord has seen us through when we should have faith that His sufficiency...
