Put Your Hope in God

July 16, 2017

Have you ever felt a million miles away from God?  Events getting you down?  People hassling you?  Prayers bouncing off the ceiling?

 

Well you are not alone!

 

Have a look at the following verses from Psalm 42 and 43 as David, prior to becoming King, laments the trouble he finds himself in, not of his own making.

 

   42:1As the deer pants for streams of water,

    so my soul pants for you, O God.

    2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

    When can I go and meet with God?

    3 My tears have been my food

    day and night,

    while men say to me all day long,

    "Where is your God?"

    5 Why are you downcast, O my soul?

    Why so disturbed within me?

    Put your hope in God,

    for I will yet praise him,

    my Saviour and 6 my God.

    11 Why are you downcast, O my soul?

    Why so disturbed within me?

    Put your hope in God,

    for I will yet praise him,

    my Saviour and my God.

   43:5 Why are you downcast, O my soul?

    Why so disturbed within me?

    Put your hope in God,

    for I will yet praise him,

    my Saviour and my God.

 

David’s life was far from perfect. His reaction was to be expected. “My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me all day long, "Where is your God?"”

 

David had faith in his future with God.  “I will put my hope in God.”  He trusted God even in the bad times.  He made the decision to trust God, even when life seemed out of control. So can you.  God is a good God.  You can trust Him with your life.
