Joy In The Midst Of Hardship

Psalms 16

Our natural reaction to hardship that arises in our lives is to run the opposite direction as fast as we can. But where do we run to in those moments? Pastor Ben Luethy shares how in the midst of hardship, we can find refuge in God, find hope in Christ, and have the Gospel lead us through hard times.

Psalms 16

Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.”
As for the saints in the land, they are the
excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.

Psalm 16:1-3

 

The sorrows of those who run after another god
shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips.

Psalm 16:4

 

The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

Psalm 16:5-6

 

I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be
shaken.

Psalm 16:7-8

 

Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being
rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.
For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
or let your holy one see corruption.

Psalm 16:9-10

 

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 16:12
