HOW DO WE GLORIFY GOD IN OUR CAVES?

I. God is glorified as we trust Him in our cAVE SEASONS (57:1‑6)
A. TRUST INVOLVES RELYING UPON GOD ALONE (57:1)

Psalms 57:1
Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.


Relying upon God alone means that we consciously do not rely upon two things:

We do not rely on human merit.
We do not rely on human means.
B. TRUST INVOLVES GOING TO GOD IN PRAYER (57:1‑2).
C. TRUST INVOLVES SEEING GOD AS GREATER THAN THE PROBLEMS OF MY CAVES (57:4-6).

Psalms 57:4-6
I am in the midst of lions;
I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.

They spread a net for my feet—
I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path—
but they have fallen into it themselves.
HOW DO WE GLORIFY GOD IN OUR CAVES?

I. God is glorified as we trust Him in our cAVE SEASONS (57:1‑6)
II. God is glorified as we praise Him in our CAVE SEASONS (57:7-11).
A. PRAISE IS A MATTER OF DELIBERATE FOCUS (57:7-9).
B. PRAISE IS A MATTER OF TESTIFYING TO OTHERS OF GOD’S GOODNESS (57:9-10).
