Last week it was Joshua learning to trust

- The Hymn "Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus"

• By Louisa M. R. Stead.

Learn To Trust

1. Believe

2. Decide

3. Rejoice

4. Depend

- Now you are put to the test

Hymn "God Will Take Care Of You"

- Civilla Martin (1869-1948) wrote this hymn when she herself needed to learn the lesson of resting in God’s care.

- Her husband, Stillman Martin, was a well-known Baptist evangelist.

- One Sunday in 1904, Civilla became ill suddenly and was unable to accompany her husband to his preaching assignment some distance away.

- Pastor considered canceling his trip

- Their young son spoke these profound words

“Daddy, don’t you think that if God wants you to preach today, He will take care of Mommy while you’re away?”

- Returning that evening after seeing several people were saved

- Mr. Martin found his wife greatly improved

- And she was busily writing this these words, "God Will Take Care Of You"

- From the thinking of her son

- That same evening, Stillman Martin composed the music, to this song

Title of These Three Psalms

- Altaschith (al tash•kayth)

- They Introduce Ps 57-59, 75

- "Destroy Not"

- Or Let there be no slaughter

Michtam (Mĭkʹ tăm)

- Introducing Ps 56-60 , 16

- Signifies Most fine gold or a golden ornament

- Using these titles we could say that this title could be "The Most Precious Secret"

David's Dilemma

a) Darkness

- This is not the first time David had to hid

- 1 Sa. 22:1 Cave of Adullam

- 1 Sa 24:1-3 Saul had 3,000 chosen men in the wilderness of Engedi

- David needed a cave to crawl into and hide from this storm of terror

- Feeling depressed & abandon

- The King is after him

b) Distress

- Note how the verses of Ps 57- 59 start

- Stressed Out – 57:1-4, 6; 58:2-4 etc.; 59:1-4 etc.

- David might have felt that God has left him

- Why is this happening

- Remember God has promised David a kingdom

c) Desire

- He cries out to the Lord

- These three Psalms have the Altashheth (Ăl•tăshʹ hĕth) "Destroy Not"

- Michtam (Mĭkʹ tăm) most fine gold or a golden ornament

- They are the beginning title

- These opening verses are not anything of "The Most Precious Secret"

- There is fear & crying out for help

- Anxiety is useless in matters under our own management.

- Anxiety will not furnish the opportunity of earning bread, or arm us with power — but the reverse.

d) Delight

- Each of these Psalms end with a focus & trust

- There is Praise

- Ps 57:7-11, 58:11, 59:16-17

Has A Good Work Begun In Me?

- Philippians 1:6 (AV) — 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

- What is the evidence that Christ has begun a good work in you?

- What is the evidence that I am in love

Easy:

- I think of that person all the time

- I want to be with that person

- I plan with that person

- I talk about & am with that person

Be Not Dismayed Whate'er Betide God Will Take Care Of You

- It shows how I trust Christ

- Evidence in my obedience to Christ
