Summer in the Psalms - Awe

Message Outline

Psalm 105:1-11 (NIV)

1Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;

  make known among the nations what he has done.

2Sing to him, sing praise to him;

  tell of all his wonderful acts.

3Glory in his holy name;

  let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

4Look to the Lord and his strength;

  seek his face always.

5Remember the wonders he has done,

  his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,

6you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,

  his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.

7He is the Lord our God;

  his judgments are in all the earth.

8He remembers his covenant forever,

  the promise he made, for a thousand generations,

9the covenant he made with Abraham,

  the oath he swore to Isaac.

10He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,

  to Israel as an everlasting covenant:

11“To you I will give the land of Canaan

  as the portion you will inherit.”

He remembers his covenant forever,

   the promise he made, for a thousand generations…

  • Where are you today? (We always have to start where we’re at…)
  • We remember, God remembers. (Genesis 28:15, Exodus 2:24, Psalm 25:6-7)

“Perhaps nothing helps us make the movement from our little selves to a larger world than remembering God in gratitude. Such a perspective puts God in view in all of life, not just in the moments we set aside for worship or spiritual disciplines. Not just in the moments when life seems easy.”– Henri Nouwen

  • Awe: God of our story and God of the whole Story.

(Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52 – “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed”)

“The Psalms invite us, first, to stand at the intersection of the different layers of time.” – N.T. Wright, The Case for the Psalms


“…Awe enables us to see the systems underlying the wonders of lifeand locate ourselves in relation to them.”

– Dacher Keltner (Awe: The New Science of Everyday Wonder, 246-247)
