Our box 17/37, Cincinnati, OH 45217. Today we continue with the message on assurance for troubled heart text is Psalm 73 verse one to truly God is good intro even to such as are of a clean heart, but as for me, my feet were almost all my sticks and well-nigh slick. I pray the message will be a comfort to you today. Now look at his consolation.

Verse 23, after he is fast that he was thinking like a group be it is, nevertheless, I am continually with Lee thou hast told me about my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory, and that one of the concert. God was still with NASA desktop.

Click here to excuse us when we have drifted and with thinking incorrectly and the settlement really doesn't matter. After all, it simply is here to make us understand God is merciful to and when we have faltered. He has not forsaken us. I am continually with the household in my right hand that sent guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

What a contrast wicked were going down the final destruction. This one who is a believer, was going ultimately to be received in the glory so inspired is wrong thinking. And the tendency to even complain God not left in spite of his ignorance. It was constantly in God's care and must we not all acknowledge the treatment many times along the way and I live when I reasoning has been no more valid than that of patient without thinking and then distorted our responses are actions or attitudes have not been what they should. But how wonderful to know that in spite of our failures. God has cared for us – this man was in God's care costs. Verse 26 my flesh and my heart famous, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. My flesh we only know the arm of flesh is sure to famous and other not times when you may say my heart famous I want to love the Lord God with all my mind, heart, soul and strength. I want to be diligent and zealous in serving him. I want to serve it with all my heart to go through those perplexing times when you may view a situation like a shift in that you just don't understand or the trials of life are so heavy and so burdensome you say my heart famous. I can't take anymore. I can't hold up can't keep going but God is the strength of my heart and that could no that when we recognize our weakness and were faltering failing and struggling, and we admit we can make it. God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever truly acknowledges his weakness but looks to God as his strength and that's a theme repeated over and over throughout the Scripture. We look at Psalm 62 verse five my soul waited now only upon God for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation. When you read the words that my heart famous then you turn to read these words, he only is my rock. What a contrast we are.

We and we falter and we fail, but he is the rock of my salvation.

He is my defense, I shall not be moved in God is my salvation and my glory and the rock of my strength and my refuge is in God, trust in him at all times, the people pour out your heart before him. God is a refuge for us. Trust in him at the altar, not just the times when you feel uplifted and you look upon the beauty of nature and cemented the handiwork of God and rejoice in his power and his blowing is great, but trusting in all times when you walk into the deep valley when the night is dark, the burden is having you trust in him at all times in Newport before. Sometimes you may think. I just wish someone would really understand me. I could just sit down and pull out my heart, like Indians and that's not have to happen because we are all reserved for all reluctant to really tell anybody all of the deepest burdens about her.

But here's one where you can pour out your heart and he knows all about you already knows her weakness. He knows her failings. He knows your sins.

He knows her shortcomings, but you can pour out your heart before him and know God is a refuge for us and said that God would be his guide guy is going to guide even unto death. He recognizes need of a guy because he now acknowledges that his thinking had been foolish. He was envious of the wicked, and that was foolishness so innately got someone to guide them in the right you know many young people go through a stage where they feel like they don't need to Reach that happy point in life where they can make better decisions than their parents could they know what they are to be able to do, and they are never set the rules and within a few times along the way I've had occasion to talk to you in person who obviously was, get ready to head down the wrong path and admonished him not to go that route but to win anyway like they needed a guy that generally I don't understand the name of the list that whether I want to make this thing works really fine. How sad to see the disaster sometimes came as a result of making that kind of a choice I don't need to guide sometimes cry keeps one from relying on a guy I guess in this day of having all these little gadgets will direct you about where to go.

This is kind of a thing of the past, but used to be man were basically known for wanting to elect for their drive in the car they know where they're going and they don't need any guidance needed help just give me enough time I'll get you there, sometimes at work. Sometimes it didn't remember years ago I was preaching to the church down the mountains of North Carolina and I stopped in the fast food restaurant there to get a bite to eat and it was full of people come to find out they were already… On the way to make him a quick so much of a particular what the church is always been there several times when just follow me, I'll take what I've got about a dozen cars follow me going down the road sudden I got this uneasy feeling it wouldn't look familiar to me is not to actually ultimately came to the foot of the big mountain and that was the end of the room and one then a church there. So some helpful soul got out of his car interpreter glamour not dependent on you to get to heaven.

You can even get us to the church and that meant my failure sometime you can think you know what you don't. But thankfully somebody in the group finally helps get turned around, got the meeting that night, but all of us need a guide.

We need the guidance of God's word.

We need the guidance of his Holy Spirit. Sometimes though it's pride that keeps a person from seeking the help of what I'm doing I know I'm going and it can lead to trouble.

When you acknowledge God as being your guide.

You know in advance you got the right guy because he is faithful even on a guide to Vermont in the desert equal to God to clear on the death and he's always right.

Psalm 48 verse 14 for this God is our God for ever and ever. He will guide even on the day of your following his guidance. Your blessed your on the right road and then the 24th verse of the 73rd Psalm, thou shalt guide me with that counsel, and afterward receive me. So the question might come about GOD's people to claim God. God, because he speaks to them audibly and he is revealed to them things. It were not made known anybody else.

Often what they claim is been revealed, contradicts the word of God. Scriptures are close they are complete and he's not giving further revelation. As far as divine truth but haven't you got 20 guides us through his word.

Psalm 119 verse 33 teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes and I shall keep it under the hand give me understanding and I shall keep my law yea I shall observe it with my whole heart make me to go in the past five Commandments for that area and do I delight. I need guidance. No I needed from word teach me along the way of thy statutes not teach me something in addition to it, contrary to teach me – – never come. The New Testament read in second Timothy 38 1816 all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is comfortable is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness at the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. So you need guidance to go to his word.

There we find its profitable profitable for the basic fundamentals that you want to believe it's possible, for reproof to reprove us when were on the wrong track, rethinking wrong attitude is wrong, for correction, tells us how to get back on the right path.

Instruction in righteousness and then not only are we guided by the word, but by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said in John 16, seven nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I go away, for if I go not away, the comforter will not comforter will not come to you, but if I depart, I will send him unto you first 13 howbeit when he, the spirit of truth is, he will want guide you into all truth for he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, he shouts, that shall he speak, and he will show you things to come.

He shall glorify me shall receive of mine and shall show it unto me. So we need guidance.

We need guidance of God can give us and will give us we needed from his word. We need the blessing of the Holy Spirit as we read the word understand and be able to make the application of life and then as we come to the end of the Psalm we see his activity.

Verse 28, but it is good for me to draw near to God. Good for me to draw near to God.

Also, many references in Scripture to the importance of the benefit of draw near to God. We look recently at the 27th Psalm or in verse eight.

When thou centers seeking my face. My heart set on the Levi face, Lord, when I sleep. Referring back to a message like that stirs your mind again to remember the importance of giving the kata response.

The psalmist did not faze Lord will not seek then you come to the New Testament James chapter 4 verse eight drawn nine unto God and he would roll nine unto you well. How do we draw near. Through his word.

Learn more about it, the more we learn about God and about his truth closer were going to be to him and we draw near, through prayer. Prayer such a vital part of the Christian life.

We can have a close walk with God. If we neglect prayer we need so much to commune with him some time to start my day struggling need to pray first read the Bible verse and both of them are vital and so we would need to be very much involved in prayer.

Pray without ceasing, the Lord gives us some unique lessons about prayer conveying some concepts and we wouldn't get otherwise not the way he illustrated there was a man went to his neighbor at midnight, knocked on the door and said friend sent me three loaves.

Landon Johnson regarding on the bank together in band learning center around the door shut.

Back in those days many times it was a small house one room house all slept in the same room and when the kids are all settled down for the night. You will have start over again, to drawling mankind in man tonight. Can't do anything about and says I'm sorry I can't leave. I have had a traveler come in. Back in those days, as was expected of you have a traveler, you're going to care for things that I need to give them something need not have anything that lasted for three loaves inside the house can do it well. Eliminate says I say unto you, that though he will not rise and give him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as any one just because it was his neighbor's friend got one, for three loaves and I got because he wouldn't give up because of his importunity is given as managing needs and harassing you.

Here's the lesson to be grown past and it shall be given you seek and you will find knock and it shall be opened unto you. Everyone that baskets receipt and he that she could find that to him not, it shall be opened, and sometimes felt guilty when you keep going back to the Lord asking them for the same thing. Sometimes the words come to my mind you not heard from you much speaking but that's another story that's just somebody going through the repetition of a lot of words thinking they're gaining some favor with God through that exercise have little doubt in that area.

I remember says pray without ceasing. And remember that lesson in the 18th chapter of the gospel were talked about that widow that went before the unjust judge another case that he granted a request, not because he cared for the woman or her situation because every opportunity because he would give up Jesus as this man was going to get what he came for because he would cue we are not given in our prayer life. So then Jesus makes this observation says if a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent or fiasco annually offer him a scorpion. If he then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask how much of that's a bit of a strange way to an aunt that that he will give him the Holy Spirit.

Let's say that you're playing for joy because Lord says would rejoice always in the Jesus is you'll be given the Holy Spirit, because joy is the fruitless. You want peace you want Hope he's going to give you the Holy Spirit as he is the source of these things that you seek and desire so as much as a father is not going to give something harmful, detrimental to his son is going to give that which is good. Your heavenly father is going to grant what is for your good and obviously we have to take into account of the things of Jesus, talk about prayer, that when we come to pray. We began our father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

We want God's name to be sanctified hallowed praise throughout the earth throughout the land in our church in our life individually and we pray God will be done the same time we are to be persistent in prayer, continuing to not seek and to ask how else do we seek God through giving thanks Psalm 92, one. It is a good thing to give thanks on the Lord and to sing praises unto thy name all those two couldn't say the give thanks to the Lord officer one patient first in this troubled state of mind. He wasn't giving thanks he was perplexed about what he saw others enjoying that he didn't have but when he got to this perspective, correct anything to the sanctuary. The Lord began to think like he needed to think they had a different outlook. He was looking for the Lord is being his guide even on to death.

It is a good thing to give thanks, for the Lord and to sing praises under thy name. Almost time and then the last expression of this Psalm.

Verse 28. It is good for me to draw near to God. I put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all that works. That's another good way of drawing near to God. I draw near to him. I put my trust in him and I'm doing it, that I may Claire his works if you're declaring the works of God who are close to him you are serving your enjoying him you're praising him.

May that be the case with the saw say it is good to draw near to God that we can say. I put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare his works and that he will be my God all through life unto death, and finally to guide safe home/to be with you and Juliet should always be our desire and prayer. We can have a closer will the Lord only when we walk in closely with him and we find the wisdom and strength mercy that we need on a daily basis. Surely we can relate to the things of the psalmists is described in this wonderful portion of Scripture may be applied in our line next week the same time in the Lord richly bless the Baptist Bible hour is come to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior address all mailed to the Baptist Bible hour Cincinnati, OH 45217.
