Peace sought
  • How David found peace

7
His appeal to God
  • Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
    Thou hast relieved me in my distress Be gracious
    to me and hear my prayer. (Psalm 41)

8
His response to the hostile
  • O sons of men, how long will my honor become a
    reproach?
  • How long will you love what is worthless and aim
    at deception?
  • But know that the Lord has set apart the godly
    man for Himself The Lord hears when I call to
    Him. (Psalm 42-3)

9
His exhortation to the indignant
  • Tremble, and do not sin Meditate in your heart
    upon your bed, and be still. Offer the sacrifices
    of righteousness, and trust in the Lord. (Psalm
    44-5)
  • Be angry, and yet do not sin do not let the sun
    go down on your anger, and do not give the devil
    an opportunity. (Ephesians 426-27)

10
His plea for the doleful
  • Many are saying, Who will show us any good?
    (Psalm 46)
  • Lift up the light of Thy countenance upon us, O
    Lord!

11
Peace attained
  • How David experienced peace

12
  • Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than
    when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I
    will both lie down and sleep, for Thou alone, O
    Lord, dost make me to dwell in safety. (Psalm
    47-8)

13
  • David found a joy that superceded what is one of
    the happiest times in the life of the carnal
    minded. His joy was in His relationship to God.
  • David found a peace that enabled him to go to
    sleep at night not in the comfortable quarters
    of his kingly palace but even in a place of
    refuge and danger.

14
We too can have the peace David experienced in
the midst of mistreatment!
15
Things to remember
  • Pray to God for His help!
  • Affirm your faith in the justice of God to take
    care of His godly ones and to vindicate their
    cause.
  • Encourage those around you to keep doing right
    even when they are upset and hurting.
  • Support those whose hearts fail because of
    disillusionment and discouragement with the hope
    that God will make all things work out!
  • Receive from God the spiritual joy and peace that
    comes through trusting in Him!
