God’s Got This

Psalm 56:1-13

Where do you go when your life is being tormented by so many enemies?  In the book of Psalms, we can learn from David’s battles with many foes. Every time he went to the only one who could help 
him - God. 

Fear and Faith Coexist Psalms 56:3-4

·  The one antagonist of fear is faith. Trust, however, is a voluntary action for which we are responsible.

·  We have little power of directly controlling fear or any other feeling, but we can determine the objects on which we fix our attention.

Principles of Healing

·  God has principles that apply across the three parts of our lives – Body – Soul – Spirit.

Steps To Heal A Physical Wound

·  Recognize the severity of the wound.

·  Take action to stop the bleeding.

·  Cleanse the wound.

·  Protect the wound.

·  Treat the wound until healed.

·  Realize that the wound heals from the inside out.

How Do We Deal With Soul or Emotional Wounds and Spiritual Wounds? 

Steps To Heal A Soul Wound

·  You can often identify the depth of a wound of the soul by how much it consumes your thoughts.  

·  Answer the cry of your soul.  

·  Honesty about our feelings releases many stressors.  

·  Emotional wounds untreated lead to damage in life as anger turns to hate, and hate to bitterness, and many get hurt. 

·  Create boundaries to keep the wound from being reopened or damaged further. 

·  Learn the power of forgiveness!  

Steps To Heal A Spiritual Wound

·  Is this a onetime ethical failure or a moral character problem?

·  Admit more than you are a sinner, admit the sin.

·  Only confession and repentance purge the heart and make you clean before God.

·  Sin can be forgiven in a single act, but sanctification requires much more.  

God Is Aware Of Our Every Need Psalms 56:8-11

·  When I know that God knows, there is nothing else I need to know

·  When you are trapped in fear, the way out is faith in a God bigger than any life problem.  

Our God Delivers Psalms 56:12-13

·  Every fear about the circumstances of life and our future are destroyed when our vision is focused on the God of love and compassion.
