Songs for the Heart

In ancient Israel, the Psalms were poems set to music. They were meant to be sung! Because the Psalms depict the struggles of real people, we turn to them for strength and encouragement. This series provides insight into the character of God and His greatness, and will enhance your praise and worship of Him.

Singing in the Battle
Psalm 27
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
This is one of the best known and most comforting of all the Psalms. It was born from crisis and that's probably why every one of us can relate to it so well. All Christians find out shortly after they're saved that life isn't a playground, but spiritual battleground. How do we survive? Better yet, how can we win those battles?

Happy to be Forgiven
Psalm 32
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
One of the greatest feelings there is in life is to have a clear conscience, especially in relationships. The absence of grudges, petty grievances and the open heart of forgiveness brings relief to the soul. Yet many walk around with a guilt complex because of "vertical insecurity"-their relationship with God isn't cleared up. Sins of the past or present remain unconfessed and unforgiven which leads to a heavy conscience due to guilt. David's been there. He knows!

Feeling Down, Looking Up
Psalm 42-43
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
"Down in the dumps and singing the blues" is an experience common to us all. Depression is no respecter of persons unless, of course, you live in a perpetual state of managed denial. Thoughts tumble in from the mind and rush the soul. Circumstances mount themselves around us putting us on emotional alert. Then the doubts rush in like a river. Sound familiar? Then this psalm is for you, friend!

How Can I Pray at a Time Like This?
Psalm 59
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
One of life's toughest places is in the place of being misunderstood. You've tried to do everything right. You were diligent and pedantic in the way you went about a certain project and then "Wham!"—like a hurricane, the criticism hit you. When you're misunderstood, you have no defense—or do you? Maybe there's a lesson to be learned from someone who has "been there, done that!" Let's see what happens.

When the Tables of Fairness Are Turned
Psalm 73
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
What do you do when what you believe is challenged by what you experience? Let me be specific. When evil abounds seemingly without restraint how can you believe in a God who is good? And on a more personal note, what good is it to follow God's plan when those who practice evil seem to be so carefree? Let's read of a spiritual person who also struggled with this.

I've Just Gotta Go to Church
Psalm 84
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Someone once scribbled a little poem about his feelings on church. He put it this way, Every time I pass a church I stop in for a visit, so that when I'm carried in The Lord won't say, "Who is it?" Such sentiments aren't exactly of a person who loved to go to church now, are they? The above author would no doubt have problems with the author of Psalm 84. This guy loved to go to the place of worship—in fact, everything in his being desired it. Why? Let's see!

Life Is Short, Pray Hard!
Psalm 90
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The contemporary Christian band, DC Talk sings, "Time is tickin' away...tick, tick, tickin' away!" Indeed it is. Life is short and uncertain as far as time is concerned. This psalmist understands that truth and in light of it, he utters a prayer that sheds insight on how we should live our lives to their maximum capacity.

How Should I Treat God?
Psalm 100
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
How do you treat someone who has loved you consistently and provided for you faithfully? From giving daily blessings to eternal promises, God is pretty awesome to us. The psalmist noted that if we were to number the caring thoughts of God toward us, they would outnumber the earth's sands. How do we treat the One who has treated us so well?

God is Alive and Well
Psalm 115
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Today in postmodern America, spirituality is a smorgasbord of deities. In the mid-1960's a movement flourished that stated "God is dead." Though the movement is itself dead nowadays, it has been replaced by interlopers--gods manufactured by man himself. Paul said "For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is one God." (1 Cor. 8:5-6) The psalmist explains the power of such a truth:

The Power of the Word of God
Psalm 119
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
One of the first purchases a new believer makes is a bible. But how important is the Bible to you? Martin Luther once wrote, "The Bible is alive—It speaks to me. It has feet—It runs after me. It has hands— It lays bold of me!" Clearly the writer of this longest psalm would wholeheartedly agree. Do you? What are the benefits the Bible can produce if read and obeyed?

What Do You Want, a House Or a Home?
Psalm 127
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
John Henry Jowett must have had Psalm 127 in mind when he wrote, "Anyone can build a house: we need the Lord for the creation of a home." There is a huge difference between the construction of these two: one is built with earthly materials and anxious thoughts while the other is the building of relationships.

United We Stand
Psalm 133
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
A proverb from antiquity states, "Weak things united become strong." That applies to weak people as well as weak things. When we are a united front, in regard to spiritual things, we increase our ability to stand against the real enemies that would destroy our souls.

What an Awesome God
Psalm 139:1-18
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
We sometimes sing, “Our God is an awesome God...” What is it about Him that makes Him so awesome? To discover this, it helps to think about His attributes. That’s what David does: he thinks about the character of God and then about God’s thoughts towards us.

The Weight of our Words
Psalm 140-141
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Words can bless and they can bite. We all know what it’s like to be around people who have a “colorful” and sharp vocabulary. We also know that the more we’re around that kind of vocabulary, the easier it is to fall into the trap of using it. How do we counter that tendency? These two little psalms will give us some help.

Hallelujah!
Psalm 150
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
This is the time of year when believers are often more aware of praising the Lord. We sing Christmas carols and hymns, gather with family and friends, and offer prayers of thanks to the Lord. But the psalmist doesn't indicate that there is a particular season set-aside for praising the Lord. Instead he exhorts us to break out in excitement and praise of the Lord for the great and mighty God He is in all seasons!
