Class 16: Anchor of the Soul


Previous Part

Part 1: Hope in God

(This is part 1 of 12 parts in this class)


David, the psalmist and king, was a man with feelings, affections and a constitution like ours. He went through things very much like the things we go through. Nevertheless, he came out of it all victoriously. What was his secret? How did he do this?


David spoke to his soul. He would demand,

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.

Psalm 42:11 - NKJV


David would enquire what right his soul had to be downcast and disquieted. Then he would command his soul to get back to hope in God.

Hope in God is the answer to your soul's weakness for getting distressed, disquieted and distraught.
