Patience Through Trials part 2

May 26, 2020

Today we stop once again at Psalm seventy-four. This Psalm of Asaph provides a good backdrop to a look at what the world really needs more than anything else. What the world needs to solve her problems is a sharp turn away from destruction and toward God. We see sin all around us and we wonder why God doesn’t act quickly.

References: Psalms 74

As we grow older, our patience grows and patience is an essential part of being a mature person. It’s also important for a prosperous relationship with God, because God’s timing is perfect, and man’s patience is not always there. Al Pittman’s study today is in Psalms seventy-four - a Psalm of Asaph that extolls the virtues of patience when facing trials.

As we look around the world today, we see chaos, anger, mis-information galore, and a significant number of deaths due to COVID-19.  As we see this, it would be easy for us to scratch our head in confusion, and wonder why.  The Psalmist Asaph went through this struggle, as we’re about to see, and it’s interesting to notice his conclusions.

Today, we’ll return to pastor Al’s series through the Psalms, and we will be looking at Psalm seventy-three, a Psalm written by Asaph.

On today’s program, we’re going to take another look at Psalm seventy-two. As we mentioned last time, this Psalm was written by King Solomon, the son of King David. As Solomon struggled to lead Israel in a Godly way, he realized that his leadership skills were not enough - He needed God’s help. That’s also true for you and me, as we struggle to get through the pandemic.

We are continuing a series in the Psalms on today’s broadcast, as we look at Psalm seventy-two. In the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s good to be reminded of what life in Christ really means. Psalm seventy-two is one of only a couple of the Psalms written by King David’s son, Solomon. It’s a beautiful testimony of God’s power and love.

Physical changes aside, one thing that older age brings is wisdom. The older generation has a responsibility to point the younger men and women in the right direction - the Godly direction! That’s the theme here in Psalm seventy-one as the psalmist considers the ramifications of growing old.

Today we’ll bring you a study of Psalm seventy. This beautiful Psalm was written by King David and express the love He had for God, and at the same time, the personal strife he faced due to the enemies who wanted to destroy him. It’s one of the shortest of the Psalms, but is packed with genuine emotion and love.
