Have you ever experienced a heartwarming moment that evokes an irresistible response? Like how can you resist petting a puppy sitting at your feet gazing at you with big round eyes? MercyMe's moving anthem, "To Not Worship You," reminds us of an irresistible response as we contemplate and rehearse God's greatness.

Join me as we study Psalm 89 to shift our perspectives and transform the way we think and worship our almighty God.

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Make a list
    • Meditate on God's Word
    • Repetition
    • Complete a word study
    • Read the text aloud
    • Start with God
  • Episode Guide Download
  • Reasons why I chose Psalm 89 to study this week
  • Examples of areas I made note of that I could explore further:
    • Study "steadfast love" - like I did in Episode 441 and Episode 461
    • Explore the covenant language
    • Study the various names of God
    • Study the references to creation
    • Explore the messianic nature of the Psalm
    • Examining the cry of lament - as I did in Episode 381
    • Make note of repeated words
  • Starting with God and listing His character, conduct, and concerns as shown in Psalm 89 (hint: I came up with over 33)
  • The ACTS model for prayer (adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication)
  • Taking one characteristic a day to meditate on and adore God
  • Completing a word study on the use of the word "faithfulness" - BibleHub.com
    • Psalm 89:1
    • Psalm 89:2
