The world around us is full of darkness, lies, and deception. The world is telling us that we don’t need God, we can make it on our own, and that we should live for mere pleasure no matter whom it may hurt. Amidst such a culture, many of us are searching for peace – a wholeness, a rest, and deep satisfaction despite what is going on around us. In Psalm 120, the first of the fifteen Psalms of Ascent, we are reminded that because of God’s character and faithfulness, we can be delivered from darkness, liberated from lies, and experience a pursuit of peace in a world of war. Join Nathan Johnson in this first message of a series examining what it means to pursue peace when everything around you seems to a cackle of chaos.
