Facing Trouble and Finding God

The Psalms never side step difficult issues of life. With candor and clarity, these poetic songs describe what is going on in our hearts. Psalm 73 and 90 speak of two central questions we wrestle with – injustice and death. We struggle with wrongs that go unpunished. We are not immune to the fact and fear of dying. Listen as Dr. John opens these Psalms with insight from a heavenly perspective. We will face troubles, but God is in them.

Facing Reality

We are studying Psalm 73. In it, we will discover a man by the name of Asaph who so doubted his faith, that in his own words, he almost lost his footing and became an unbeliever. Psalm 73 tells us how he found faith after it had almost disappeared.

Facing Eternity

We are never facing reality if we are not facing eternity! As long as our lives are consumed by what is seen, we will struggle to have faith in the the things that will be.

Facing the Brevity of Life

Psalm 90 teaches us how to pray, how to come to terms with our sins and how to come to terms with an altogether righteous God. It comes with a request that God would favour us all the days of our lives, but what’s even more significant, it contains a great note of happiness.

Facing the Reality of Our Sins

In in this portion of scripture we will see Moses reflect on sin, the anger of God and the trouble that we all face.In in this portion of scripture we will see Moses reflect on sin, the anger of God and the trouble that we all face.

Finding Joy While Facing Trouble

Psalm 90 ends with five prayers for those who have squarely faced the trouble of life and have found God. Each of these prayers arise out of faith, out of the joyous discovery that trouble is not the last word; instead trouble has been the pathway of discovering God.
