    Freedom From Bondage

    Is there something that is preventing you from becoming everything that God created you to be? Are your sinful habits holding you back from true joy and fulfillment? The enemy can keep you captive with his sinful enticements and God's spiritual armor can help you battle the enemy's temptations. Through God's grace you can find freedom from bondage and experience the abundant life God has for you.

    What does it mean to Work Out Your Salvation?

    I think a lot of believers don't know what it means to work out your own salvation. Many, I've come to realize think this means that salvation comes by works and not of free gift of grace through Jesus Christ. So, let's study this. I found a great little bible study on this passage below.

    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

  1. Psalms 1
    The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

    1 Blessed is the man
    Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
    2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.
    3 He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
    And whatever he does shall prosper.

    4 The ungodly are not so,
    But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
    5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
    Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

    6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
    But the way of the ungodly shall perish.




    Psalm 2

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

    2 Why do the nations rage,
    And the people plot a vain thing?
    2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
    And the rulers take counsel together,
    Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
    3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
    And cast away Their cords from us.”

    4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
    The Lord shall hold them in derision.
    5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
    And distress them in His deep displeasure:
    6 “Yet I have set My King
    On My holy hill of Zion.”

    7 “I will declare the decree:
    The Lord has said to Me,
    ‘You are My Son,
    Today I have begotten You.
    8 Ask of Me, and I will give You
    The nations for Your inheritance,
    And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
    9 You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron;
    You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”

    10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
    Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
    11 Serve the Lord with fear,
    And rejoice with trembling.
    12 Kiss the Son, lest [c] He be angry,
    And you perish in the way,
    When His wrath is kindled but a little.
    Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

    Psalm 3

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Lord Helps His Troubled People
    A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.

    3 Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
    Many are they who rise up against me.
    2 Many are they who say of me,
    “There is no help for him in God.” Selah

    3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
    My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
    4 I cried to the Lord with my voice,
    And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

    5 I lay down and slept;
    I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
    6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
    Who have set themselves against me all around.

    7 Arise, O Lord;
    Save me, O my God!
    For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
    You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
    8 Salvation belongs to the Lord.
    Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah




    Psalm 4

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Safety of the Faithful
    To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

    4 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
    You have relieved me in my distress;
    Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

    2 How long, O you sons of men,
    Will you turn my glory to shame?
    How long will you love worthlessness
    And seek falsehood? Selah
    3 But know that the Lord has set apart[a] for Himself him who is godly;
    The Lord will hear when I call to Him.

    4 Be angry, and do not sin.
    Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah
    5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
    And put your trust in the Lord.

    6 There are many who say,
    “Who will show us any good?”
    Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
    7 You have put gladness in my heart,
    More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
    8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
    For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.



    Psalm 5

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    A Prayer for Guidance
    To the Chief Musician. With flutes.[a] A Psalm of David.

    5 Give ear to my words, O Lord,
    Consider my meditation.
    2 Give heed to the voice of my cry,
    My King and my God,
    For to You I will pray.
    3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord;
    In the morning I will direct it to You,
    And I will look up.

    4 For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness,
    Nor shall evil dwell with You.
    5 The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;
    You hate all workers of iniquity.
    6 You shall destroy those who speak falsehood;
    The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

    7 But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;
    In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.
    8 Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
    Make Your way straight before my face.

    9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
    Their inward part is destruction;
    Their throat is an open tomb;
    They flatter with their tongue.
    10 Pronounce them guilty, O God!
    Let them fall by their own counsels;
    Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
    For they have rebelled against You.

    11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
    Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
    Let those also who love Your name
    Be joyful in You.
    12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
    With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
