    GOD in the Psalms Series 09: Delight Yourself in the Lord {Psalm 37}

    GOD in the Psalms Series 09: Delight Yourself in the Lord {Psalm 37}

    Christians in every generation have had to grapple with the reality that wicked people prosper in this world. What makes this is especially hard is  the opposite reality: godly people suffer in this world. And yet we're told over and over that God is good to His people, that His love is unfailing, and that His faithfulness is without exception. What gives? How can both be true? What are we supposed to do with the tension between our suffering and the wicked's success? Between what we know to be true of God and what feels true as we lament what's happening around us?

    While Psalm 37 doesn't fully resolve these tensions, it offers the people of God both a reminder of what's true and a plan for remaining faithful in the face of what can feel so unbearably unfair. In this episode we'll learn how to move from fretting to trusting as we fix our eyes on the steadfast promises of God.

    GOD in the Psalms Series 08: I Shall Not Want {Psalm 23}

    GOD in the Psalms Series 08: I Shall Not Want {Psalm 23}

    Some passages are so familiar that they're in danger of becoming biblical white noise. We can quote them, sing them, and effortlessly explain them. We put them on our coffee mugs and wall plaques. They're a regular find at the local Hobby Lobby.  But just like familiarity eventually led my grandparents to  stop hearing the train that ran close to their home, our familiarity with certain passages of Scripture can cause us to lose sight of the profound nature of their message. Their beauty gets a little bit clouded by our awareness. Their meaning gets muffled by our assumption that we already know everything there is to know.

    Psalm 23 is one of those passages. We love it, cherish it, recite it, and print it on our funeral programs. But when was the last time you stopped and really pondered the astonishing reality that the God of the universe - the Creator and King over all things  - cares for you and me as a shepherd cares for His sheep? When was the last time you unpacked that metaphor? Meditated on it? Personalized it? Treasured it?

    That's what we  are setting out to do in this episode. We are going to stop and actually hear the train. We're going to savor afresh the anxiety-crushing truths contained in these six verses. And then we're going to take a deep breath and remind our hearts that this God is our God. 

    "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want..."

    GOD in the Psalms Series 07: You Alone Are God {Psalm 86}

    GOD in the Psalms Series 07: You Alone Are God {Psalm 86}

    We are several weeks into this series on the attributes of God. Week after week we have asked the question, “What does this Psalm teach me about God?”
    As a result we've seen some incredible things! We’ve marveled at God’s knowledge, His love, His sovereignty, His goodness, His grace, His power, His wisdom, His patience and so many other amazing attributes.
    As we near the end of our study it’s incredibly important that we consider the practical implications of this knowledge. In others words, now what? How do we respond to what we know about God’s character? What do we do? 
    Psalm 86 shows us that we pray.

    GOD in the Psalms Series 06: My Refuge and My Fortress {Psalm 91}

    GOD in the Psalms Series 06: My Refuge and My Fortress {Psalm 91}

    One of the most significant metaphors for God throughout the entire book of Psalms is that of a refuge, which is really comforting when you stop and consider all the things in our lives that threaten our sense of security. Most of us live each day with a heavy load of "what ifs" weighing on our minds. We do everything we can to prevent what we fear, but we all know our efforts have their limits. We are ultimately not in control.

    But the One who IS in control has spoken to us in His Word. He has given us passages like Psalm 91 to remind us that He is a refuge and fortress, a strong defense for those who put their trust in Him. This episode is a powerful reminder that God loves and protects His own.

    GOD in the Psalms Series 05: Taste and See {Psalm 34}

    GOD in the Psalms Series 05: Taste and See {Psalm 34}

    "If things aren't going well, hear this and be happy."

    That's how Psalm 34:2 is paraphrased in  The Message and I have a hunch that some of us - no, a LOT of us - meet that condition. Things aren't going so well. We could use some good news. 

    Thankfully, there's whole bunch of it in today's episode where we continue to explore the beauty and majesty  of  God as we walk through Psalm 34 together.

    GOD in the Psalms Series 04: Our Help and Our Shield {Psalm 33}

    GOD in the Psalms Series 04: Our Help and Our Shield {Psalm 33}

    Psalm 33: 16 and 17 says, "A king is not saved by a large army; a warrior will not be rescued by great strength. The horse is a false hope for safety; it provides no escape by its great power."

    Large armies, warrior skills, and horses probably aren't your go-to sources of security and significance, mainly because you aren't a king living in ancient Palestine. You've got your own set of potential "saviors" - things you put your hope in, things you're certain will make your future everything you want it to be.  We all do.
     
    Psalm 33 is a powerful reminder that God alone is the only reliable source of the security, significance, and salvation that we crave.  He alone is all-powerful. He alone is sovereign.  He alone is our help and our shield.  Hope in God!

Solid, engaging Bible teaching

Aprile has long been one of my very favorite Bible teachers (men or women). I’m so glad that she is producing this podcast and that more people now have access to her teaching. I always learn something new every time I listen to her. She does not shy away from complex issues. She is not your typical light and fluffy women’s event speaker. Her candor and real life application are so relatable, and there’s a good bit of fun mixed in to these podcasts as well. Thank you, Aprile, for putting such a helpful resource into the hands of women!

Encouraging and God Glorifying

Thankful for women who love God’s word and teaches us what the text says.

Love it!

This is such a refreshing, Biblically-sound exploration of womanhood. The teaching is very clear and organized and hits on points that are often ignored in regular sermons. I’m learning a lot and feeling more humbled and excited to be made a woman. Look forward to more and will definitely be checking out the study guides!
