Waiting On The Mighty God
In these days, our PATIENCE is being TESTED. We all want to go back to the OLD NORMAL, but it is continually VIOLENTLY being PUSHED OUT by this UGLY NEW NORMAL!
Many have become DEPRESSED; many have lost their HEALTH; many have lost their RESOURCES.
TEXT: Psalm 62
QUESTION: What do we do?
ANSWER: Psalm 62 gives us SOUND WISDOM.
There are SIX LESSONS to learn from this Psalm and they are as follows:
I. WAITING ONLY ON OUR MIGHTY GOD vv. 1 – 2 / vv. 5 – 6
What does “My soul waits in silence” mean?
This is a kind of waiting that is both PATIENT and UNCOMPLAINING.
This is a CHALLENGE for all of us.
II.REASON FOR WAITING vv. 3 – 4
David was becoming IMPATIENT about his situation and SO ARE WE. We are also asking “How long?”
III.RELIANCE OF WAITING vv. 6 – 7
ABSOLUTE RELIANCE on the Lord.
IV.MANNER OF WAITING v. 8 V. WRONG WAITING vv. 9 – 10
Waiting is not PASSIVE. It is PROACTIVE WAITING
V. WRONG WAITING vv. 9 – 10
The thought here is NOT to TRUST MEN regardless of STATUS, for they are absolutely UNRELIABLE.
VI.RATIONALE for WAITING on the Lord vv. 11 – 12
(A) He is a God of POWER v. 11
11 Once God has spoken; Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God;
This expression is used to give emphasis that power belongs to God alone.
(B) He is a God of LOVING-KINDNESS v. 12
(C) He is a God of JUSTICE v. 12
There are many CHALLENGES, BUT YET God! There is the COVID-19, BUT YET God! There is a DOWNTURN in the economy, BUT YET God! There is the problem of SIN and HELL, BUT YET God!
