Everyone has a story. What’s yours? That’s the message behind Psalm 145. This Psalm is filled with beautiful images of worship and storytelling. We invite you to study this Psalm with us and listen to our messages online at westsidelife.org/sermons.
Psalm 145:4 is the theme verse for our Storytellers series. We believe that one of the best ways of passing our faith to future generations is learning to tell the story of God’s love and faithfulness in our lives.
The “mighty acts” that David talks about in this passage conveys the idea of God’s unsurpassed strength. There are many things in our lives that seem overwhelming and impossible, but God has shown time and time again that nothing is impossible with God (see Matthew 19:26).
What obstacles are holding you back from the life you want to live? What temptations seem to be getting the best of you? No matter what you’re up against, it’s no match for God.
With that in mind, one of the best stories we can share is the way that God—through that unsurpassed strength—has helped us overcome the tragedies, trauma and temptations that this world so often throws our way. When we rely on God’s strength to overcome these obstacles, we learn to trust in his power instead of our own abilities. And that gives us a wonderful story to tell our friends, family, and community.
