The Ultimate Priority - Worship . . . Part 6

THE WORSHIP PERSPECTIVE         Page 6

V.16 ** How does that compare to God's view of evildoers?

He sets His face against them, to cut off the memory of them from the earth!

V.17 ** What should we do when we since trouble?

Cry out to the Lord, knowing He hears and delivers.

V.18 ** When we are truly suffering, what truth from God's own word should lift our broken hearts?

The Lord is near and saves our crushed spirits!

V.19 ** When we maintain "The Worship Perspective" in our lives, we are going to encounter affliction.
(cf. 2Timothy 3:12) How do we know that our God accepts our worship from His perspective?

He will deliver us "out of them all"!

V.20 ** As David reflects upon God's meticulous protection for the righteous, He (through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) slips into a Messianic prophesy related to the death of Christ. What does He say about God's protection, even in the death of the Messiah?

"He keeps all his bones, not one of them is broken"
cf. John 19:31-36, Exodus 12:43-46, Numbers 9:11-12

If our God can watch out for the most minute detail of the Messiah's sacrificial death on our behalf, He can certainly deliver us from all of our afflictions.

V.21 ** Unlike the protection afforded us by the "Divine View of Worship", what is going to be the outcome of life for the wicked?

Their own "evil" will slay them. cf. Proverbs 29:6 Because of their hatred for us, they will be condemned. cf. 2Thessalonians 1:6-8

V.22 ** There is no greater assurance of the "Divine View of Worship" than in the outcome of a life that has been devoted to serving the Lord. How will it end according to David?

The Lord redeems the soul of His servants; and none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned. Our worship of the Lord Jesus Christ is beautifully described in the phrase "take refuge in Him".
