About This Message


Reasons For A Troubled Heart…

1. Fear

My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me. Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me. I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
Psalm 55:4-6 (NIV)

2. Enemies

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, for I see violence and strife in the city. Day and night they prowl about on its walls; malice and abuse are within it. Destructive forces are at work in the city; threats and lies never leave its streets.
Psalm 55:9-11 (NIV)

3. Disloyal Friends 

If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers.
Psalm 55:12-14 (NIV)

Answers To A Troubled Heart…

1. Talking

But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.  Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.
Psalm 55:16-17 (NIV)

2. Trusting

But you, God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of decay; the bloodthirsty and deceitful will not live out half their days. But as for me, I trust in you.
Psalm 55:23 (NIV)

3. Casting   

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
Psalm 55:22 (NIV)

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:7-8 (NIV)
