Wisdom for Times of Trouble — Job 

Psalm 61, When my heart is overwhelmed

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

As you read Psalm 61 it is evident David is Overwhelmed. We are living in a time when it is easy to get overwhelmed. Look at David’s situation and how he handles it. David began feeling at “the ends of the earth,” far from God. But as he thought about God and prayed to him, he drew closer to God. He grew in confidence until he ends actually expecting to be established in Jerusalem, his capital, for many days and many generations.

David’s God is our God.

Augustine wrote, They that are godly are oppressed and vexed in the church or congregation for this purpose: that when they are pressed, they should cry; and when they cry, that they should be heard; and when they are heard, that they should laud and praise God.

As Jonah concludes his prayer, the Word of God is clear to him, “Do you do well to be angry?” Boice remarks of Jonah’s anger, “He had obeyed God, doing what God wanted; but God had not done what Jonah wanted.” Is this the cause of your own anger?

You can live your life 1 of 2 ways in light of Jonah’s story. You can obey God and be blessed by His using you to reach others or you can resist, be miserable, and still be used by God to reach others. To those of you here today unsaved, I implore you…. See the mercy and love of God in this story; See the length to which He will go to reach out to you; Return to Him today!

We find Jonah, fleeing, but being pursued by God. This speaks to the mercy and love of God. He loves so much, that He pursues Jonah. He is so merciful, though Jonah disobeys and flees, God stays after Him to help him into a good path rather than one of destruction.

Jonah disobeyed God’s Word, he tried to avoid God’s will and flee God’s Holiness. He attempted to flee the presence of God! But Jonah knows all too well that God is All-Present. He is everywhere, all the time. Further, Jonah, God’s prophet, knows and preaches that God is sovereign. He is in control. Are you following Him or fleeing?

Peter writes to comfort the church while facing false teachers and accusers. The prophets told us these people would come, questioning Jesus’ promise to return and God’s judgment in the end.

False teachers are pointed out in scripture, and so is their impact on others. They leave those they betray with unfulfilled promises. They offer liberty but instead lead them into legalism. They can only ever give them a religion, never true regeneration.
