Isaiah promises: “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.” In this half-hour, Ron Moore shows us how that strength is acquired, especially by those returning from a place of disobedience.

Psalm 78:32-39   In spite of all this, they kept on sinning; in spite of his wonders, they did not believe. So he ended their days in futility and their years in terror. Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again. They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer. But then they would flatter him with their mouths,… Continue Reading…

Oftentimes what we count as great misfortune is really great blessing in disguise. It’s used by a loving God to get our attention…to save us from far worse distress. And as Ron Moore is about to share, the pain of sin’s consequence is well worth the blessing of reconciliation and wholeness.

Psalm 78:23-31   Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens; he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven. Human beings ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat. He let loose the east wind from the heavens and by his power made the south wind blow. He… Continue Reading…

Psalm 78:17-22    But they continued to sin against him, rebelling in the wilderness against the Most High. They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved. They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness? True, he struck the rock, and water gushed out, streams flowed abundantly, but can he also give us bread? Can he supply meat for… Continue Reading…

Psalm 78:9-16   The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows, turned back on the day of battle; they did not keep God’s covenant and refused to live by his law. They forgot what he had done, the wonders he had shown them. He did miracles in the sight of their ancestors in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. He divided the sea and led them through;… Continue Reading…

Psalm 78:1-8  A maskil of Asaph. My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old—things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the… Continue Reading…

A single, deliberate trespass can lead us down the broad way where other sins gather to devour our fragmented faith. Ron Moore offers a return path to the narrow road of obedience. A journey that will heal us and make us whole again.

Psalm 77:16-20   The waters saw you, God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed. The clouds poured down water, the heavens resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth. Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked. Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen…. Continue Reading…

James tells us the double-minded person is unstable in all of his or her ways. So why do we often choose the dishonesty of a double life over the stability of obedience? Ron Moore gives us three reasons…and the way back to wholeness.

Psalm 77:10-15   Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand. I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs… Continue Reading…

Self deception is an imperfect science. Our wants, mixed with a heaping measure of rationalization, is a powerful compound that will validate any path we wish to take. But today, from the life of David, Ron Moore demonstrates how, more often than not, that experiment in homebrewed happiness can blow up in our face.

Psalm 77:1-9  For the director of music. For Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm. I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted. I remembered you, God, and I groaned; I meditated, and my spirit grew faint. You kept my eyes from closing;… Continue Reading…

The abundant life Jesus promised winds through dark ravines, over uneven ground and up steep, rocky slopes. And then…there’s a fork in the path. So, on today’s broadcast, Ron Moore offers a cautionary tale. It warns of the fatigue that would divert us from the narrow way we should always obediently choose.

Psalm 76:7-12    It is you alone who are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry? From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet—when you, God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land. Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained. Make vows to the LORD your God… Continue Reading…

Psalm 76:1-6  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song.  God is renowned in Judah; in Israel his name is great. His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion. There he broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war. You are radiant with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game. The valiant lie plundered, they sleep… Continue Reading…

Psalm 75:6-10   No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves. It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another. In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs. As for me, I will declare this forever;… Continue Reading…

Fathers. What will your children remember most about you? Your successes, your failures, your tries? Or will it be something else entirely? Something you didn’t realize you’d left behind. Today Ron Moore, a father himself, talks about the threads that weave a strong and lasting legacy.

Psalm 75:1-5  For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” A psalm of Asaph. A song. We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the… Continue Reading…

Psalm 74:18-23   Remember how the enemy has mocked you, LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name. Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever. Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise… Continue Reading…
