Psalm 43 Bible Study
1. Be cheerful even in your problems
We should give thanksgivings to God, even in facing a difficult situation. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, in every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. If you grumble and look gloomy, this will glorify Satan because Satan likes to see believers not trusting in God. Satan’s purpose to get more people into Hell. Therefore, we must always trust and rely on God, when difficult situation happens. If you persistently trust in God, God will surely answer your prayer. In Ephesians 5:20, giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Proverbs 3:5-6, trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. In Romans 8:28, and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
