Sentinel Tribune available at: Hoyt Oil &Convenience Bubai Grocery Thrifty White Pharmacy Maynard's Grocery ExpressWay Shady Drive-Inn Pause... and Consider By Pastor Rob Adams Longing for God As the hart pants after the water brooks, so my soul pants after thee, 0 God (Psalm 42:1). Originally Psalms 42 and 43 quite likely formed one psalm. No one knows for sure why or when they were divided. The author is unknown though he probably lived in the northern part of Israel. He may have been a Levite who took groups of people on pilgrimages to the Temple. For some rea- son he is now unable to go, and wonders if God has forsaken him. He wrestles with the Lord. These psalms deal with the journey from despair to hope with prayers of longing for deliv- erance. The author conveys three emotions as he fluctuates between faith and despair: First, there is the nature of his longing (42:1-5). As the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after You, 0 God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living Go& when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, 'Where is your God?' When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me;for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. He longs to go on his normal pilgrimage to the Temple. The memories of these past journeys are pain- ful. His sight of the panting, thirsty doe is a picture of his own longing soul, his spiritual drought. Second, there are the depths of his despair (42:6-11). 0 my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar. Deep calls unto deep at the noise of your waterspouts; all your waves and your billows are gone over me. Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. The image changes from a drought to drowning. The geographic locations are in northern Israel. He is in despair because he cannot take this journey. Yet his attitude changes when he refers to God as Jehovah (8). He knows that he can worship the LORD wherever he is--he need not go to Jerusalem. Finally, we see the source of his trust (43:1-5). Judge me, 0 God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; 0 deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man. For you are the God of my strength. Why do you cast me off?. Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 0 send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me unto your holy hill, and unto your tabernacles. Then I will go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy; yes, upon the harp I will praise You, 0 my God. Why are you cast down, 0 my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God;for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my coun- tenance and my God. The landscape changes once again, from storm to dawn. He has made great progress since he saw the thirsty doe. The psalmist is asking God to be both his judge and his defense attorney. Yet, his trust is in God, his exceeding joy, strength and praise. Many people are in despair today. They need the Lord. God wants to give us fullness of joy, but it is found only in confession, repentance, and forgiveness by faith in the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ who died and is alive today.
