Yearn – Shane & Shane
Music has a unique ability to affect the human soul. The synergy of words and tunes helps us express reality, and feel reality, especially when it resonates with our deepest desires. “Lord, I want to yearn for you” is a simple line. But for the heart whose passionate pursuit is to know Jesus, this line is an earnest prayer. It is a soundtrack for the life that longs to treasure him more. https://desiringgod.org http://shaneandshane.com Lyrics: Holy design This place in time That I might seek and find my God Lord, I want to yearn for You I want to burn with passion over You And only You Lord, I want to yearn for You I want to burn with passion over You And only You Lord, I want to yearn Your joy is mine Yet why am I fine With all my singing and bringing grain In light of Him Oh, You give life and breath In You we live and move That's why I sing

When a Man Loves a Woman Well
If you want to measure a man, look to the women around him. Woman is the glory of man (1 Corinthians 11:7) — in friendships, marriages, families, churches, and societies — so where women are flourishing, honored, and cherished, we know the men are acting as God intended. With their minds flooded with the knowledge of the gospel, Christian men see their sisters in Christ, and all women, not as things to be manipulated or dominated, but as treasures to honor, guard, and cherish.

God Will Supply All Your Needs
When we live by faith in God’s promise of future grace, it will be very hard for anxiety to survive in our hearts. --- In Philippians 4:6, Paul says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” And then in Philippians 4:19 (just 13 verses later), he gives the liberating promise of future grace: “My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” If we live by faith in this promise of future grace, it will be very hard for anxiety to survive. God’s “riches in glory” are inexhaustible. He really means for us not to worry about our future. We should follow this pattern that Paul lays out for us. We should battle the unbelief of anxiety with the promises of future grace. When I am anxious about some risky new venture or meeting, I regularly battle unbelief with one of my most often-used promises, Isaiah 41:10. The day I left America for three years in Germany my father called me long distance and gave me this promise on the telephone. For three years I must have quoted it to myself five hundred times to get me through periods of tremendous stress. “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” I have fought anxiety with this promise so many times that when the motor of my mind is in neutral, the hum of the gears is the sound of Isaiah 41:10. --- By John Piper https://desiringGod.org/authors/john-piper God Will Supply All Your Needs on desiringGod.org https://desiringGod.org/god-will-supply-all-your-needs Subscribe to the Solid Joys Daily Devotional podcast https://desiringGod.org/podcasts

Without Jesus – Shane & Shane
Lyrics: Just three chords and a melody Won't leave you a living legacy Without Jesus Just four songs and a parable Might leave you something terrible Just five bucks in an offering Won't buy you some prosperity Just a sixth sense of morality Won't get you out of your depravity Without Jesus, oh, without Jesus You could memorize Become a Mennonite You could speak in tongues And raise the dead to life You could build a big church Call it ministry Teach 'em all they need to know to run a family You could sell it all Be burned at the stake But what in the world have you to ever gain Without Jesus, oh, without Jesus If all I ever get out of laying my life down Is thorns in the shape of a crown On the brow of a man from Nazareth And if all I get is what Jesus did, And said, and put within my heart Then I get it all I have it all Oh, I have it all Everything is mine Oh, I have it all I have it all Just three chords and a melody Won't leave you a living legacy Without Jesus

No Ocean Big Enough: The Beauty of God in the World He Made – John Piper
When we look at oceans or mountains, whales or bears, fields or deserts, God wants us to see the beauty, power, and wisdom in his creation and think, “What must God be like!” He wants us to ride the waves he has made into worship, and climb the mountains he built to see more of him. The sermon clip is from a message John Piper preached on Sunday, February 8, 1987 entitled, “The Pleasure of God in His Creation.” Read or listen to the entire message at http://desiringgod.org/messages/the-pleasure-of-god-in-his-creation --- Transcript --- What a God. What power! Why did he lavish such a universe upon a creature like us? Why isn’t that overdoing it! What a universe! And what a God. God rejoices in the works of creation because they point us beyond themselves to God. God does mean for us to be stunned and awed by his creation, but not for its own sake. He means for us to say, “If the work of God’s hands is so abundant with power, and wisdom, and majesty, and grandeur, and beauty, what must God be like? What must the Creator be like, if the flinging out of his fingers is so majestic and grand and great and glorious? In the end, it’s not going to be the seas. It’s not going to be the ocean. It’s not going to be the deserts, or the flowers, or the mountains. It’s not going to be the grand galaxies. It’s going to be God himself that satisfies the soul. Nothing short of God will do. The infinite expanses of the galaxies will not satisfy my longing for grandeur — only the Maker himself. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!”

Keep Looking: The Life Changing Secret to Reading the Bible
A biologist once told a story about his Harvard professor named Louis Agassiz, who taught him a simple habit to help him see more than he ever dreamed. The lesson he learned is also the secret to lifelong and life-changing Bible reading: keep looking. One reason we see so little when we read the Bible is that we do not give ourselves long enough to look. John Piper shares the story “Agassiz and the Fish” in his new book “Reading the Bible Supernaturally” (https://desiringgod.org/books/reading-the-bible-supernaturally). In the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something miraculous happens: God gives us new eyes to see more of him — if we are willing to slow down and keep looking. http://desiringgod.org/keep-looking Script: David Mathis, Marshall Segal (Adapted from an excerpt from “Reading the Bible Supernaturally”) Production: Stefan Green Voice Over: John Piper Creative Direction & Animation: Jorge R Canedo E.

How Do I Feed My Joy in Jesus Every Morning? // Ask Pastor John
If Christ is not our supreme treasure, something else will gladly take his place. So how do we preserve our joy in God through the day? Today we celebrate the compounded effect of human labor in America. We call it Labor Day — happy Labor Day! In fact, day by day we can invest our lives in what becomes a major enterprise over the years, like in reflecting on the effect of daily habits and disciplines over the course of a whole life. Today’s question is from a listener named Kate. “Hello, Pastor John! I want to start by thanking you for your ministry to the saints. Your podcast has been helpful in my own life concerning Christian living. I’ve recently been quite intrigued and curious about Christian Hedonism — something that you are so passionate about and I have come to believe is beautiful. My question is, What are the little things I can do throughout my busy day to find this joy in God, the joy you so clearly know?” Episode 1245: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/how-do-i-feed-my-joy-in-jesus-every-morning Related Resources: ”Three Threats to the Joy of This Generation“ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r97V7ox0n0o “What Is “the Joy of the Lord” and Where Can I Find It?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uh5Um2By5A “Is My Lack of Joy Sinful?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xajohyf_EQw “How Much Joy Can We Really Expect in This Life?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCtnCYdwFpY Find other recent and popular Ask Pastor John episodes, http://desiringgod.org/ask-pastor-john

God’s Sovereign Plans Behind Your Most Unproductive Days // Ask Pastor John
How is God at work in our most unproductive days, when it feels as though we’ve accomplished nothing and fallen far short of our own plans and expectations? Those days are frustrating to us, but they are not outside of God’s sovereign power. It leads to today’s question on what efficiency looks like in the first place, a very good question from a listener named Melinda. “Hello, Pastor John, thank you for this podcast! Back in episode 1115, about caring for those with dementia, you closed your remarks with this phrase: ‘God’s priorities for efficiency in this life are not ours.’ Can you please elaborate on this? I struggle mightily with time management skills. I’m a homeschooling mom trying to balance kids’ needs and activities, ministry, household duties . . . and sleep.
