Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 5 March 2023
This psalm comes from one who seems to face acute frustrations. His opponents are criticizing him, bitterly accusing him of wasting his time in “God matters”. See vs.3,9b-10. Are you facing similar frustrations because friends and close relatives are criticizing you for spending more time for God?
Read carefully vs.1,2, 4-6 and find out how the writer resolves his difficulties. Check the following: The psalmist
Sets his heart entirely on God. He obviously is a very prayerful person in close link with God. See v.8. Calls to mind some of the memorable times he has had in the house of the Lord.
Addresses his soul and encourages it to rise up in hope and praise. Check from 1 Samuel 30:6 and see what David did when he faced extreme discouragement in his life.
The Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian will enable him to express his confidence in the Lord in difficult situations and so be restored to normal life again.
What Next? Are you suffering some discouragements in your Christian experience? If so, learn from the psalmist.

Lord Jesus, let my hope rest in you alone.
