Study Guide – Psalm 116:6-9


6 The Lord protects those of childlike faith;
    I was facing death, and he saved me.
7 Let my soul be at rest again,
    for the Lord has been good to me.
8 He has saved me from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling.
9 And so I walk in the Lord’s presence
    as I live here on earth! NLT

In these verses, what childlike qualities do you find?


What would it look like for you to “walk in the Lord’s presence” today?



How could you develop a more “childlike” faith? What attitudes and actions could you have in the next 24 hours to show a more trusting, relational faith?
