Peace in Times of Distress
This week our study of the Psalms brings us to a psalm God had King David write, to help refocus his children when they are experiencing stress. Sadly, is a contortion of God’s word that somehow if one believes in God, we aren’t supposed to experience stress. There is even a greater distortion of God’s Word, that somehow if we just pray the right prayer at just the right time it will all be fixed and the stress will be gone. King David was no stranger to stress and distress, both brought about by his own sin, and by the actions of his enemies. God uses Psalm 25 to help direct our prayers and trust when stress has turned to distress.
