Devotionals from Pastor Keith

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
“Hosanna!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
John 12:13

Part 2: The Return of the King

As we prepare for Palm Sunday, Pastor Keith takes a look at the small dinner party held in Jesus honour, after he raised Lazarus from the dead.

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6: 34

As we find ourselves in a time of chaos and uncertainty, join Pastor Keith in reflecting on the truths of Matthew 6: 25-34

"Cast your cares upon Him, for He cares about you"
1 Peter 5:7
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:38-39

As we look to the hope of spring, Pastor Keith leads us in a devotional focusing on the hope we have in a Saviour who brought hope up from the grave.  He takes us back in history to look at some saints who have gone before us:  Martin Luther, John Donne and C.S. Lewis, and how they experienced  God's hand in the midst of disease and war.

"I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out before him my complaint; before him I tell my trouble."
Psalm 142:1-2

Part 1: Praying from the cave

David hid and found retreat in the cave of Adullam. During this time he prayed out to God and we can read that prayer in Psalm 142.

We are in our own caves today ... Pastor Keith provides some words of encouragement using David's prayer of Psalm 142.

"For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope."
Romans 15:4

Part 2: Praying from the cave

In Part 2, Pastor Keith encourages us to pray the Psalms of David and others who have poured out their hearts to God during times of isolation and fear. Pray these prayers for yourself and find true hope, light and life from God.

"Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed."

Psalm 57:1

Part 1: The Return of the King

As we prepare for Palm Sunday, Pastor Keith takes a look at the small dinner party held in Jesus honour, after he raised Lazarus from the dead.
