Duration: 57 mins 23 secs
What do you mean saying I shouldn’t get upset? Don’t you see all the awful things that are happening in our country? Listen to this lesson to learn that Psalm 37 tells us not to get worked up over evil and injustice. Find out that we’re to accept that God has everything under control and that, although things may look bad now, God’s plan will triumph and justice will be done in God’s time. The wicked will end up getting their punishment and those who delight in God will receive the desires of their heart. Appreciate that this psalm is written in a deliberate manner with each verse beginning with a letter of the alphabet and its very cadence calms us and helps us stay focused on the assurances of God.

Passage: Matthew 6:25-34
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 45 mins 3 secs
"Don't worry. Be happy!" It's easy enough to sing this little song but what happens when you wake up in the middle of the night and worries come swarming into your mind like buzzing bees? Listen to this lesson to understand that God is in control of your life. Since He's already done the greatest thing for us by sending His Son to die for our sins, it's no problem for Him to take care of what we need to eat, what we need to wear, and all the other details of life. See how worry is a sin and a sign that we lack faith in God. Be aware that memorizing God's Word is a great antidote to worry.
