Peace Amid Pressure
Main Point: Trusting God in times of present distress is a step by step process in relationship with Christ.
We reaffirm our trust in the Lord
We remember our God is Sovereign and loyal in his Love toward us
We resolve to petition God for help
We leave’s judgment in God’s hands
14 But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hand;
rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!
16 Make your face shine on your servant;
save me in your steadfast love!
17 O Lord, let me not be put to shame,
for I call upon you;
let the wicked be put to shame;
let them go silently to Sheol.
18 Let the lying lips be mute,
which speak insolently against the righteous
in pride and contempt. (ESV)
