Psalms

Speaker: Pastor Tim Fraiser
Date: August 06, 2017

Life has a way of being less two dimensional and more multifaceted than we give it credit. There are depths of emotions, textures of relating, sorrows as deep as a canyon, along with joys that soar higher than a mountain top - and everything in between. How are we to navigate such a complex life, all the while loving and enjoying God? Insert the Psalms from the Bible. Within these ancient and poetic musings, we find a melody that resonates with modern rhymes and reasons of life. Join us as we walk through selected Psalm and hear the vintage songs with a modern message.

Title - Dark Night Of The Soul

 


Psalm 42:1-5 - “As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me all the day long,
“Where is your God?” These things I remember, as I pour out my soul:
how I would go with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God
with glad shouts and songs of praise, a multitude keeping festival. Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation”

 


Psalm 42:1-2 “As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?

 


Causes of Depression

 


- Sin (Psalm 32:3-5) -“For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.Selah I acknowledged my sin to you,and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.Selah”

 


-Obedience

 


-Physical Psalm 42:3 -“My tears have been my food
day and night, while they say to me all the day long, “Where is your God?””

 


How The Gospel Speaks Into Depression
- Remember God Psalm 42:4 - “These things I remember,
as I pour out my soul: how I would go with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God with glad shouts and songs of praise,
a multitude keeping festival.”

 


- Preach the gospel to yourself Psalm 42:5“Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation”

 

 

Quote - “No one is more influential in your life than you are, because no one talks to you as much as you talk to yourself. You’re in an unending, incredibly im-portant conversation with your soul every moment of every day.” - Paul David Tripp

 


Quote - “What then shall I say to you, Self? If God is for me, who can be against me? God did not spare his own Son but gave him up for me, how will he not also with him graciously give all things? Who shall bring any charge against one of God’s children? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate me from the love of Christ? Shall depression, or tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or trials, or nakedness, or danger, or despair? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor pow-ers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to sepa-rate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Adapted from

 


Romans 8:31-39 - “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?”

 


Psalm 42:5 - “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation”
