This week we talked about Psalm 139:19-24. How we should be on God’s side always. Please read below to learn more.
- David has an issue.
- He didn’t bring it up at the beginning, but we begin to see it now.
- Before he brings up his issues he elevates God as the Lord of his life.
- This is how we should pray and worship.
- In verse 19, David is saying that he doesn’t want to be associated with the people that hate God.
- Look at 1 Peter 2:1-3.
- Like a baby craves milk, so should we crave God. We should crave Him more than anything else.
- How do we do this?
- Look at 1 Peter 2:3 again. Taste and see that God is good. Spend time with Him. Increase your time with Him and it will increase your craving for Him.
- This Saturday (2/21) we are having a worship night. This is one way to encounter God. It gives us an opportunity to spend time with the Lord.
- In verse 21 he goes on to say that he wants to be on God’s side.
- Being on God’s side can be hard to do, especially when life is hard.
- Do you side with the Lord? Even when it’s hard?
- God hates sin. When people are sinning around you are you pointing them to Christ?
- Look at verse 23-24.
- Psalm 139 stated with David saying “you search me and know me.” Not it focuses in and says “know my heart.”
- There is no escaping God.
- Do not compromise. The things we read in Psalm 139 are true promises of God. Even if you don’t believe them, they are still true. Do not compromise!
