When You’re Thirsty for Him

Last Sunday, the pastor taught from Psalm 42. Read it for yourself. (Click on the Scripture reference to read it online.)

Rev. Stephenson made note of a troubled world asking Believers: Where is your God?

But the greater grief comes when our own soul asks: Where is your God? 

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Psalm 42:5 NIV


In these times, when we thirst for His presence, Rev. Stephenson gave us four steps to encourage our souls and settle our spirit:

Remember
Practice now. Remember a time in your faith journey, when God was near. 

Hope
There is no greater hope than that found in Jesus. Place your hope in Him for whatever need you have.

Praise
What aspect of God’s character do you most appreciate at this moment in your life? Find a Scripture that speaks to that attribute. Praise Him now and throughout the day. 

Trust
He has promised many things, among them that He will never leave us or forsake us. He cannot lie, He is completely trustworthy in all His ways. Place your trust in Him now, with a prayer.

Whether the whole world is in turmoil or if it is just your personal world that’s falling apart, remember, in Him you are not alone, there is hope to praise Him for and trust Him in.
