DAV-10 DSS-34 WFL-41
David – our focus these past weeks! Why? Because he’s so much like all of us…
Loves God – Falls… Sins… Discouraged… Encouraged… Righteous… Conquers… Worships God…
In fact, David and Psalms (1/2 he wrote) mirror nearly all our lives the ups and downs!
Let’s do a quick review:
1. 1 Sam. 17 – He stands alone for God (Israel covering behind him) facing God’s enemies (Goliath + co.). Why? UNCHANGING CONCERN FOR GOD’S HONOR! Now Psalms mirror David’s life.
2. 1 Sam. 19:11-18 > Psalm 59 We see David depending on God (when assassins come/Saul). Why? UNSHAKEABLE TRUST IN GOD’S PROTECTION
3. 1 Sam. 21:10-12 > Psalm 56 We see David confident (Ps. 56:9)! Why! “THIS I KNOW THAT GOD IS FOR ME” DISTINCT IMPRESSION GOD IS ON HIS SIDE!
4. 1 Sam. 21:13-15 > Ps. 34 We see David magnifying God. Why? UNWAVERING AWARENESS GOD WAS WATCHING
5. 1 Sam. 22:1-2 > Ps. 142 We see Daavid calling on God. Why? UNFAILING HOPE GOD WAS LISTENING AND HEARING
6. 1 Sam. 23:133-14 > Ps. 63 We see David seeking God. Why? ABUNDANT SATISFACTION GOD REFRESHED HIM
7. 1 Sam. 23:19-25 > Ps. 54 We see David finding refuge in God. Why? CONSTANTLY SETTING GOD BEFORE HIMSELF V. 30
8. 1 Sam. 24:16-22 > Ps. 57 We see David rising above discouragement. Why? APPLYING HIS GREAT DISCOVERIES ABOUT GOD Learned Ps. 142
9. 2 Sam. 5:17-25 – 2 Sam. 22 > Ps. 18 We find David triumphing over all enemies! Why?
SEEING LIFE FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE
v.1-3 God is greatest attraction v. 4-6 We are in desperate condition v. 7-15 God is awesome v. 16-24 It is God who rescues v. 25-29 God is just v. 30-36 God reveals Himself v. 37-45 God conquers enemies v. 46-50 God is to be praised
Let’s do something this week: 1) Be concerned for God’s honor – stand alone 2) Trust God’s protection – don’t fear 3) Realize God is on your side – you are valuable 4) Remember God’s watching – fear God 5) Expect God to hear – pray 6) Be satisfied in God’s refreshment – seek Him 7) Set God first – deny self 8) Apply God’s great truth – live it
What’s that? Seeing life through God’s eyes!
