Problems: what was happening to him (oppression, injustice, and taunting) and what was happening in him (dryness, thirst, disturbance, downcast soul, mourning, overwhelmed). Solutions: PEP (Pray for help, Enjoy God, Preach to yourself). It is ok to pray for relief. But relief alone isn‚Äôt enough. You need joy, which comes when all three tributaries (past, present, and future enjoyment of God) are flowing.
Positive Sermon! When you have problems and trials this message will give you strong things to do by looking to God's strength to help you overcome even the deepest negative feelings. Very good examples to follow.
