DISCOURAGED?

OBSERVATION: THE BOOK OF PSALMS IS A COLLECTION OF 150 POEMS WRITTEN BY VARIOUS AUTHORS THROUGHOUT ISRAEL’S HISTORY. EVERY HUMAN EMOTION IS EXPRESSED IN THE PSALMS. KING DAVID PENNED HALF OF THE PSALMS. SOME ARE UNNAMED AND SOME NAMED BY VARIOUS WRITERS. THIS STUDY ADDRESSES DISCOURAGING, TROUBLING ISSUES.

INTERPRETATION: PSALM 138:7 (NKJV) THOUGH I WALK IN THE MIDST OF TROUBLE, YOU WILL REVIVE ME; YOU WILL STRETCH OUT YOUR HAND AGAINST THE WRATH OF MY ENEMIES, AND YOUR RIGHT HAND WILL SAVE ME.

POINTS TO PONDER:

SOME INTERPRET PSALM 138:7 IN A MILITARY CONTEXT. IN OTHER WORDS THANKING GOD FOR A MILITARY VICTORY AND EXPRESSING SUCCESS IN FUTURE MILITARY ACTIONS. DAVID RECOGNIZED TROUBLE AHEAD YET HE DID NOT ACCEPT DISCOURAGEMENT: HE RELIED ON GOD FOR PROTECTION!

THE ISSUE IS NOT IF DISCOURAGEMENT WILL COME. BELIEVE THAT IT IS A REALITY, A LIFE ISSUE. THE ENTIRE POINT IS HOW YOU DEAL WITH IT WHEN IT APPEARS!

ISAIAH 51:11-SO THE RANSOMED OF THE LORD WILL RETURN AND COME WITH JOYFUL SHOUTING TO ZION, AND EVERLASTING JOY WILL BE ON THEIR HEADS. THEY WILL OBTAIN GLADNESS AND JOY, AND SORROW AND SIGHING WILL FLEE AWAY.

APPLICATION: DAVID KNEW WHERE TO GO IN TIMES OF DISCOURAGEMENT. ANSWERED PRAYER ACCOMPLISHES GOD’S PURPOSES IN YOUR LIFE. TURN YOUR DISCOURAGEMENT, SORROW, SIGHING AND DISAPPOINTMENTS OVER TO THE LORD.
