This is an exposition of Psalm 83. This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Wednesday evening, January 10, 2018.
Do you ever feel like it's you against the world, like everyone is swimming in the other direction? What do we do when God doesn't step in and prevent something bad?
In times like these we need to remember two things:
- That the life of the righteous is a life of constant struggle (vs. 1-8).
- That the righteous faithfully and constantly call upon the lord, seeking deliverance, and the glory and honor of God (vs. 9-18).
In this psalm the primary motivation of the psalmist is not deliverance or revenge, but God's glory.
