Summary: When you are faithful but frustrated

  Study Tools

In every believers… life a period of frustration will come…if you haven’t experienced it….yet... just keep on living…… For the time will come …….when you will feel…… as though …..all you do.…and all you try to do…. Don’t amount to a hill of beans…...You may feel…. that there isn’t anything…….working out right…or anything working in your favor….and from time to time…….you feel….that you’ve failed your family…..that you‘ve a failed in your community……and that most things you’ve done in life …..aint worth kicking…….. out of the river…yes sir….life will…….. make you ….feel that way…and ….Things get so bad…. That you start asking ….some questions……yeah..?questions?… that I’m sure….most of us in here today….has at least thought about……you know questions like….Why is it….. that the drug dealer….. can have the best cars,….fine homes….…and money to burn and throw out the window…why is it that these rappers and movie stars….live like kings and queens..….questions like…. why is it that people……who have no regard for holiness….. and no respect for GOD…people that are …living ….any kind of way…...you know…..drinking and smoking….snorting….and shooting up……living like Sodom and Gomorrah…..was still alive….why is it …..that unbelievers seem to have …..such good health ……it seems like…sometimes…..folk in the world….are not even….. plagued …….with the common cold…….

and you‘ve been faithful….. in your home…faithful…at your job….in your community….with your family members…even….in the church…..and here you are living out of the mouth…of God seemingly,… and haven’t a thing to show for it?…you say….here I am….. making sacrifices for the sake of salvation…..and you‘re striving….. to walk that straight and narrow….and it seems like trouble ……don‘t know nobody‘s address…..but yours….…it just make you ….a little frustrated…..have I got a little help in here today?..…

Well, Saints….of GOD……I need to tell you…… if you will read the 73rd Psalm …in it’s entirety…you’ll find your answer…to theses questions… …yes sir…. You will find that ……these statements….are not….only used by you and I ……to express our emotions……but were also used by David…Here David said …..in Verses 3 and 5 "I was envious…. at the foolish,….when I saw the prosperity of ….the wicked"…..he said…. "They are not in trouble ……as other men; ……neither are they plagued …..like other men"……. Keep in mind now;…. this is the one ……that God said……was a man….. after His own heart……Now if David …can say….. what he said about the foolish….and the wicked,….. surely you and I …will have questions …..regarding the same……. David said in (Verse 16) "that….. when I thought to know this……it was too painful for me"…it gave David a painful headache….. to even think about how the wicked would prosper….and today….I raise the question……Why do faithful believers suffer?…Why do the faithful go through….… So often we get frustrated,……down and even depressed …….when God allows us …..to go through a tough situation……We grow weary…….because of financial needs…..we get depressed….. at the diagnosis of a disease,……we lose heart ….in the lost or death ….of a family member…. problems of life……make us weary…. in our well doing…., and this is when we start questioning God……
