Study Guide – Psalm 18:46-50

Psalm18-46-50

46 The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock!

    Exalted be God my Savior!


47 He is the God who avenges me,


    who subdues nations under me,


48     who saves me from my enemies.


You exalted me above my foes;


    from a violent man you rescued me.


49 Therefore I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;


    I will sing the praises of your name.

50 He gives his king great victories;

    he shows unfailing love to his anointed,


    to David and to his descendants forever.
NIV

 

Verse 46 begins with the phrase, “The Lord
lives!” Why is it important to realize this phrase is true?

 

Look at verses 47-48. Practically in your life,
what would it look like for God to have your back?

 

In the future, as you look back at your long
life, what do you think will cause you to praise God like David does in verses
49-50?

 

Take one final glance through all of David’s
testimony in Psalm 18. Describe the way that God’s faithfulness to David
intersected with David’s faithfulness to God.

EQUIPPING CHALLENGE :::::

hours to accomplish what God wants in your life?
