COPING WITH STRESS

March 2, 2016

Wednesday

 

Psalm 118:5-6

 

I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.

The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

 

 

LESSON

 

There are many who, when they are lifted up, care not for speaking of their former depressions; but David takes all occasions to remember his own low estate. Setting him in “a large place pictures freedom to move about without constraint. Since God was with him, he did not need to fear what other people might do to him. Furthermore the Lord would be his helper, so he could expect to prevail over his adversaries.

The Christian is absolutely the freest and most untrammelled man in the world. I am a freer man, a richer man, a blither man, a stronger man, a hopefuller man, because I am a Christian. He has “set me in a large place.”
Memory Verse: Psalm 35:7
