Psalm 54 Bible Study
1. Commit your problems to God
When David was chased after by Saul, he committed his problems to God and begged him to deliver him from his enemies. When you face a problem, you should discuss it with God and let him see you through it. You should discuss every issue in your life with God. You should keep on praying until you receive what you pray for. In Philippians 4:6, be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. In Ephesians 6:18, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. In Romans 12:12, rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer. In Hebrews 10:36, for ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. In Matthew 11:28-30, come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
