INTRODUCTION

When trouble strikes, what should be our MINDSET and our RESPONSE? The way we THINK and what we DO determines whether we will be VICTORIOUS or DEFEATED in the face of TROUBLE.

BODY SERMON

David gives us very SOLID PRINCIPLES to apply in the midst of trouble and he
gives it to us in TWO VERY CLEAR points:

I. WHY WE SHOULD NOT FEAR OUR TROUBLES (vv. 1 – 3)
1. Because God is our deliverer (v. 1)
2. Because God vanquishes our Troubles (v. 2)
3. Because God is our Sure Confidence (v.3)

II. WHAT WE SHOULD DO IN THE MIDST OF TROUBLE (vv. 4 – 12)
1. Seek the Lord that He may deliver us (vv. 4 – 6)
2. Pray to the Lord (vv. 7, 9, 12)
3. Ask and Respond to His Instructions (vv. 8, 11)
4. Trust Him (v. 13)
5. Wait for the Lord in courage (v.14)

CONCLUSION

The bottom-line here is that in the face of TROUBLE, we should NOT FEAR because of who our God is! NOT FEARING however doesn’t we sit down and do NOTHING.

We should:

1. Seek the Lord that He may deliver us (vv. 4 – 6)
2. Pray to the Lord (vv. 7, 9, 12)
3. Ask and Respond to His Instructions (vv. 8, 11)
4. Trust Him (v. 13)
5. Wait for the Lord in courage (v.14)
