Alive in God

Wednesday of the Second Week in Epiphany
Psalm 54

Nick reads the one-minute introduction.


The psalms are intimate prayers that join Jews, Moslems, Christians—everyone in the human family. Often, as here, the psalmist has big problems. He is aware of his enemies and begins to describe just how they are getting to him. Yet greater than the power of his enemies, the sacred writer rejoices in the power found in the name of the Lord. So awesome is this power, that Jews refrain from uttering the sacred name of God.

In Christ, we need not be so cautious. Jesus urges us to use his holy name. When prayed with faith and confidence, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead keeps you alive in God, and buoys up those people for whom you are to intercede.

When you are up against it and difficulties simply seem too much, stop, let go and place your faith in the power of the name of the Lord coming against all that comes against you.


Wednesdays are dedicated to the Psalms.

One thought on “Alive in God

  1. ARE CREED BOOKS GOD’S WORD?-by steve finnell

    Creed books used in most Christian denominations are the authoritative book used as the final authority in faith and practice. The question is should creed books be the final authority or should the Scriptures be only the word of authority and the final word?

    Are creed books Scripture? Are creed books the inerrant word of God? Are creed books written by God or are they composed by men?

    CAN YOU USE THE WORD CREED BOOK AND SCRIPTURE INTERCHANGEABLY?

    2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,(NKJV)

    Would is be accurate to translate 2 Timothy 3:16 All Creed books are given by inspiration of God….? Of course not, man-made creed books are not Scripture.

    John 2:22 Therefore,when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.(NKJV)

    Jesus never quoted from the man-made creed books of the scribes, Sadducees or Pharisees. Man-made creeds were not a tool Jesus use to teach the truth.

    Acts 8:30-38…..35 Then Philip open his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him…..(NKJV)

    Philip use the Scripture to preach to the eunuch. He did not use a creed book filled with the opinions of men.

    Jesus, the apostles, deacons, and all Christians mention in the Bible taught from the Scriptures, they did not use man-made creed books.

    CREED BOOKS ARE NOT SCRIPTURES. THEY ARE NOT THE INERRANT WORD OF GOD.
