Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 4 March 2023
Have you been desperately ill before? This was possibly the condition of the psalmist. Check from vs.1-3 why he thinks that the Lord would definitely deliver him from this illness? What can we learn about God in these verses?
Read vs.4-10 and find out why the psalmist desperately desired that the Lord would heal him? Many times, in situations like this, the Lord would heal our illnesses for His own name’s sake and for the sake of the Gospel. Check Isaiah 53:5 and be reminded when you are ill of the real source of healing.
Vs.11-12 refer to the Messiah Christ Jesus. On the cross His enemies thought they had finally succeeded. But His subsequent resurrection on the third day shut the mouth of His adversaries. The Lord God upheld Jesus and set Him in His presence forever. Is your life embedded in Christ Jesus? The joy of the psalmist makes him shout God’s praise in v.13. May our lives be full of testimonies of the Lord’s goodness that our lips may declare His everlasting love.
Quick check: compare v.9 with John 13:18
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
Lord, my enemy may be very close at hand. Please be gracious to me and deliver me.
