Psalms 120 In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me...
think about it.
What does the psalmist ask to be delivered from (120:2)? How have lies and deceit damaged you? What brings woe to the psalmist (120:5-6)? How will you speak for peace in your sphere of influence?
Sometimes our circumstances are just plain…yuck (you fill in your own details). No, we don't like it at all, but those times are just part of life. That's what I see as I read Psalm 120. The writer finds himself living with and surrounded by ungodly people and apparently, he's unable to leave. So he does what he can. He cries out to God and relies on Him for strength and comfort to cope with this difficult situation.
So what does Psalm 120 show you about dealing with times of trouble and difficulties? How will you draw on these verses? Tami W.
