We Have Come Too Far To Turn Back Now


The Cross Before Me

Psalm 56:6-11

6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

I am entitling this today:

We Have Come Too Far To Turn Back Now


The Cross before me

This Psalm was written by David when Saul was trying to kill him.

David at this time was on the run of his life and had joined forces with the Phillistines in gath.

David was going through a daily battle with the thoughts running through his head that Saul was trying to kill him.

Ps 56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

David’s experiences while far from his Fathers house and in exile among those that hated him occasioned this Psalm.

David while on the run for his life kept up the faith in God.

Ps 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

We as believers realize that fear is not of God, but yet from time to time we have all done it.

David did not deny the presence of fear, but here we see where David knows what and where the antidote for fear is. “I will trust in thee”

Has things ever went wrong for you?

Did you ever fill the decisions that you have made others are not happy with?

Church let be, let God.

Ps 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

What we need to understand is that confidence in man and what he says never gives occasion for praise.

Confidence in God and His word give constant occasion for praise.

Verse five says They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

There were constant pursuits and plots against David by Saul and his men.

Have you ever felt this way?

Some of us have felt this way a lot.

How many knows that we have an adversary that hates you, he will take your words and will twist what you say.

Your adversary Satan wants to take you out, he wants to kill you, he wants you to end up where he is going to be for all eternity. “Hell”

Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Psalm 56:6

6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

Satan is hiding amongst the stuff of this world; he is marking your steps, wanting to win the battle for your soul.

God wants us to be united and strong and ready for the storm that is upon us.

God has put us here at the Shelter House Assembly of God together to make a difference in our surrounding community.

About 2 or 3 months ago I was going through a battle.

I am not going to go into what it was over.

I heard a whooshing noise and the Lord audibly spoke and told me “you’re going to be packed.”

Over the past few months the Lord has been giving dreams about the Cross.

Last Monday I dreamed that a huge Cross was in front of me and it lit up with all kinds of beautiful lights.

Jas 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

We as a church need to walk in unity and have our minds on what Christ done at the Cross and what was done for us.

Philippians 3:15-16

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Church if we want an upper room experience then we need to be focused on what the word of God says.
