Departing From Distress

Passage:Psalm 120

Speaker: Pastor Bob Graham

Series: Psalms Study

Category: Comfort and Encouragement

Keywords: distress, lying lips, slander, reputation, prayer, deliverance

This Psalm is the first Psalm of what has been referred to as the Songs of Ascent. It is believed that the Jews that were scattered abroad made their way back to Jerusalem for the Feast days three times each year singing these Psalms. This first Psalm certainly does not sound like the sentiment of someone going to a time of celebration, but we must realize they were also leaving somewhere as well. This first Psalm of ascent speaks more of the distress the Jewish pilgrims were leaving than the blessing they were heading toward. But it also gives us some valuable insight regarding what to do with those distresses.
