WHERE CAN SADNESS LEAD?

• Doubt
Day and night I have only tears for food, while my enemies continually taunt me, saying, “Where is this God of yours?” - Psalm 42:3

• Despair
My heart is breaking as I remember how it used to be: I walked among the crowds of worshipers, leading a great procession to the house of God, singing for joy and giving thanks amid the sound of a great celebration! - Psalm 42:4

• Defeat
“O God my rock,” I cry, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I wander around in grief, oppressed by my enemies?” Their taunts break my bones. They scoff, “Where is this God of yours?” - Psalm 42:9-10

• Hope
Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again - my Savior and my God! - Psalm 42:5
1) A promise for my past: ______________.

Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you - even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan, from the land of Mount Mizar. - Psalm 42:6

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. - Romans 8:1


2) A promise for my present: _______________

I hear the tumult of the raging seas as your waves and surging tides sweep over me. But each day the Lord pours his unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing his songs, praying to God who gives me life. - Psalm 42:7-8
3) A promise for my future: ____________.

And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins.18In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.
- 1 Corinthians 15:17-19

Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again - my Savior and my God! - Psalm 42:11
