Theme: Praying in the time of trouble and trial: if you don't forget God in the good days, you will trust Him in the bad days! Be thankful and fulfill your promises to God - this is How you will avoid forgetting Him!
Sermon Outline:

Psalm 50:14-15: 14 Offer to God thanksgiving, And pay your vows to the Most High! 15 "Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me."

In Psalm 50, God rebukes his covenant people for their religious formalism. They were meticulously performing their animal-sacrifices to God as if they were giving God something! And under their scrupulous religiosity there was wickedness: immorality, injustice, idolatry!

So God tells them: Don’t act as if you are giving me things! You’re not giving me anything; I’m giving you everything! For the world is mine, and all its fullness!!!

1. Thankfulness and Obedience

Sacrifice to God today!!! And keep the promises you made to the Most High!!!

When do you forget God, in the time of trouble? I’m inclined to forget God in good times! When I’m in trouble I tend to remember God! There are no atheists on a sinking ship…

2. Forgetfulness and Wickedness

Strong rebuke of the wicked of God’s covenant people! (vv. 16-22)

E. White: We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history. What does it say?

We’ve been taught that there is past, present and future: past (that’s behind me), present (that’s where I am) and future (that’s ahead of me). That’s the Greek view of time!

The Hebrew view is different. My past is before me; my future is behind me! I’m not facing the future; I’m facing the past and I’m going backwards toward my future!

If I forget the past, I forget what God did for me there. When the time of trouble comes… my mind goes blank! Then I suddenly remember Him. Like the prodigal son… I call upon Him and make promises, because I know the Bible: 15 Call upon Me…

And God delivers me… and I forget again (no thanks, no promises kept). If I remember God, but I don’t repent... (I am not thankful, I’m not obedient...), if I only look for an easy way out… the God I’m praying to is not God…; it’s only a pitiful distortion of God.

If I keep on thankful and obedient, every new trouble will bring to memory not the previous trouble, but the deliverance from it!!!
