Psalms 42 PRIVATE PASSIONS AND OUTER OBSTACLES
THE FOCUS OF OUR FEELINGS V.1-4
CONTENT ONLY WITH THE SUPERNATURAL V.1
DYNAMIC DESIRE As the Deer pants after the water brooks,
DEPENDABLE DELIVERER so pants my soul after You, O God.
CRAVING COMMUNION WITH THE CREATOR V.2
INNER OBSESSION My soul thirsts for God,
IDENTITY OPTIMISM for the living God:
INDELIBLE OPPORTUNITY when will I come and appear before God?
CHALLENGED WITH THE CONDEMNATION OF CRITICS
RAW DISRUPTION V.3 My tears have been my meat day and night,
ROUTINE DEPRECIATION while they continually say unto me,
ROOD DISPARAGEMENT Where is Your God?
CONSUMED WITH THE EMANCIPATION OF EXPRESSION V.4
I CONTEMPLATE THE CENSOR When I remember these things,
I LIBERATE MY LONGINGS I pour out my soul in me:
I ANALYZE MY ASSOCIATIONS for I had gone with the multitude, I
went with them to the house of God
I ASPIRE TO ADORATION with the voice of joy and praise,
with a multitude that kept holyday.
