Psalm 003:04

Psalms 3:4


What do you do, should you do, when trouble strikes?


The word for cry, ‘qara,’
is future tense and means when I cry, or when next I cry because of the
hardships that surround me




4 I cried [qara’] unto the LORD [Yahovah] with my voice, [qowl] and
he heard
[`anah] me out of his holy [qodesh] hill. [har] Selah. [celah] KJV-Interlinear



4 I was
crying to the Lord with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain.
Selah. NASB

The word for cry, ‘qara,’
is future tense and means when I cry, or when next I cry because of the
hardships that surround me, referring to David, in times of trouble.


Thus David has but one
response to trouble when it comes into his life, and that response is to turn
to God.


David knows that this is
the devils world, and that trouble is always around the next corner. It is just
a matter of time when trouble will come into his life.


It is the same with you
and me, and with us all. This is the devils world. By default, trouble is out
there and will find us sooner or later.


Sometimes that trouble will
be small, like a broken finger nail. Sometimes the trouble will be great. Like the
death of a loved one. And then there are all of the possible troubles in
between, so numerous that they cannot be counted.


What is your reaction
when trouble raises its head in your life? Do you complain? Do you whine? Do
you look for someone to blame? Do you feel sorry for yourself?


Or, do you look to God,
accepting that trouble will occur, knowing that it will never be at times of
convenience, but knowing that God will have a solution for you, even if it is
in the simple training of your mental attitude over that problem. Will you, can
you, maintain some poise and self control when trouble occurs.


Perhaps trouble has to
enter into your life several times before your training helps you to learn how
to deal with it.


Perhaps you are hard
headed enough such that you just do not learn.


Perhaps it takes several
types of trouble before the light comes on inside of your head.


All of life’s
experiences are designed to test your spiritual growth in one way or another.
Most people fail.


God always hears your
call for help. God always hears you through His holy hill, Zion, which refers
to Bible doctrine. Out from His holy hill.


Zion is the tallest
point in the city of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the city of peace. Peace refers to
spiritual maturity for that is the end result of maturity. Zion refers to the
content of doctrine, the mountain of doctrine, that produces and supports that
peace through maturity.


Therefore, help comes
from God, through doctrine, which comes to you through learning. You cannot use
what you do not know.


Selah, is a pause or a
rest. Many are the plans and opinions of man, but Gods plan goes right on,
regardless of mans view.




Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
