Psalms 42:5-10 THE FORMULA OF FAITH

REFUSE DESPONDENCY V.5     Why are you cast down, O my soul?  

                                                                  and why are you disquieted in me?

REFLECT DESIRE                            hope you in God:

REHEARSE DELIGHTS                  for I shall yet praise him

RECALL DELIVERANCES              for the help of his countenance.

RECOGNIZE DESPAIR V.6            O my God, my soul is cast down within me

REMEMBER DETAILS

    HIGHS OF LIFE            therefore will I remember thee from the land of  

                                                 Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

    LOWS OF LIFE              Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterspouts  

                                                  all Your waves and Your billows are gone over me.

    CONSTANT OF LIFE v.8-9

        GOD’S TENDER TOUCH V.8

             SPECIAL LOVE             Yet the LORD will command his loving 

                                                          kindness in the daytime,

             STEADY LYRICS          and in the night his song shall be with me,

             STRONG LONGING    and my prayer unto the God of my life.

        GOD’S RELIABLE RESOURCES V.9 I will say unto God my rock,

    MISCALCULATIONS IN LIFE v.10

        WHEN WE FEEL DISCARDED   Why hast thou forgotten me?

        WHEN WE FEEL DOMINATED why go I mourning because of

                                                                         the oppression of the enemy?

        WHEN WE FEEL DEGRADED V.10 As with a sword in my bones,

                                                                                mine enemies reproach me;

        WHEN WE FEEL DEFEAT                  while they say daily unto me

              FROM MOCKERY                             Where is thy God?

              FROM MOANING                              Why are you cast down, O my soul?

              FROM MISERY                                  and why are you disquieted within me?

    MOTIVATIONS IN LIFE

            BE EXPECTANT                                  hope thou in God:

            BE EXULTANT                                     for I shall yet praise him,

            BE EXPRESSIVE                                who is the health of my countenance,

            BE ENCOURAGED                             and my God.
