Psalm 43 – WHAT I NEED! or NEEDY OLD ME!
We will all depend on others today. We will depend on some to provide food, some to provide utilities, some to assist at work, some to help with needs at home. If we ever stopped to count the number of people that we depend on during one day, I think we would be surprised.
Of course, the one we need to depend on more than anyone else is God. Yet, many people never admit just how much they need God’s help. Psalm 43 reminds me just how needy I am.
I NEED GOD’S HELP Vs. 1
I NEED GOD’S STRENGTH Vs. 2
See Isaiah 41:10.
I NEED GOD’S GUIDANCE Vs. 3
Light brightens the path so we can see what direction to take. Psalm 32:8
Truth is what I need in order to make a right decision.
I NEED GOD’S PRESENCE Vss. 3-4
Notice that the guidance the psalmist especially wants is into the presence of God.
All problems are diminished when I am in fellowship with my God.
I NEED GOD’S ENCOURAGEMENT. Vs. 5
As I hope in God, He will encourage me.
The conclusion of this Psalm is I NEED GOD!
