Study Introduction

Do you ever feel physically or emotionally alone? David knew very well how that felt. Fortunately for us, he wrote down both his feelings and his vision of what to do in these very difficult times.

Sometimes trouble just overwhelms you. You feel vulnerable, weak, unstable. If you ever feel this way, you are in good company. David felt that way too. He poured his heart out to God and depended on the Lord in a way that will help you in times of trouble.

From the real life lessons of David on the run, we discover ways to cope with danger, difficulty, and the demands of living a life of faith in a godless world.

Betrayal is one of the hardest things we have to deal with, especially if it is a friend or brother or sister. David experienced much betrayal in his life and in these Psalms we learn how to effectively deal with friends who become enemies.

No one really expected the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today we focus on the expectations of two of those who first saw Jesus: John and Mary. What they expected, and how Jesus actually met them, can help your relationship with Jesus too.

What do you expect from Jesus? The people, disciples, and the religious leaders had some very specific expectations of Jesus on Palm Sunday. He shattered all of them, just as He shatters our expectations as well. And that\'s a good thing!

Have you ever wondered how to approach God? Mankind makes up all kinds of ways to do it including external shows of religious piety or elaborate ceremony. But in these three psalms we see God\\\'s recipe for drawing close to Him.

Do you contemplate the love of the Lord for you? Do you think about him as the King of the earth and the King of your heart? In these psalms, catch a vision for what it will be like when Jesus rules.

These three psalms give us a wonderful picture of salvation, the Bride of Christ, and Jesus the Warrior King who rules for truth, justice, and humility.

Depression sometimes hits us, but we often don\'t know how to handle it or get out of it. In fact, we feel guilty for even being depressed. But these psalms give us some clues on what to do when we are down.

Sin is one of those things we don\'t want to talk about or face. But it is the central problem facing us every day. There is a solution, but it starts with facing sin head on.

What do you do when the culture around you and life seems to go south? Do you rant and rave and get bummed? Get some incredible advice from David on how to put life and difficulty into perspective.

Once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior - what next? How do you actually move forward in your life with God? There are forces that want to keep you from doing well, and we explore them in these two psalms.

When we look around at our nation and our culture it is easy to become discouraged and bummed out. But in these two psalms we see reasons for rejoicing no matter what life throws our way.

Everybody messes up now and again. How you feel about it and what you do about it makes a huge difference. Find out how David handled sin in a wonderful way we can learn from.

In Psalms 29 & 30 23 see the awesome character and power of God, but in Psalm 30 we see David stuck in a trial. If God is so powerful how come He lets David undergo a life-threatening illness? In this we see how God works in difficulties in our lives as well.

What kind of a Christmas was it for Mary? A young girl having God\'s baby all alone with her husband in a strange town? Her experience teaches us a lot about what our celebration should really be about.

\"Your mission, should you decide to accept it is to save mankind from a tyrant. Oh, and to do it you must become a human infant, completely helpless and vulnerable.\" In a big way, the mission of Jesus was impossible. The same holds true for us. But if Jesus could succeed, so can we!
