At LBC, we want to make it easy for you to jump in and worship on Sundays. We believe a big part of this is coming to Sunday service prepared! Each week, we provide the sermon text, some discussion questions, the songs we will sing, and anything else we think you need to know to prepare your heart to worship the Lord this Sunday!
This week we are breaking from the book of Acts and beginning a Summer series in the Psalms!
Last Sunday, we heard of God's commitment to build his church!
This week, we're diving into Psalm 62.
Psa. 62:1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
Psa. 62:3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
Psa. 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Psa. 62:8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is ha refuge for us. Selah
Psa. 62:9 Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion;
set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
Psa. 62:11 Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
according to his work.
1. What seems to be the threat in Ps. 62? What is the Psalmist's response?
2. How does this relate to what we've seen so far in Acts?
3. List all the ways the Psalmist describes God. What does this communicate about Him?
4. When you encounter trials, what are some things you rely on rather than God?
5. For those in Christ, what is our ultimate hope of deliverance? How does that impact how you view trials in this life?
6. How does the conclusion of the Psalm give us confidence in the face of injustice?
