Christ in the Psalms
Finding Rest
Psalm 116

OVERVIEW
The book of Psalms is the most frequently read book in the Old Testament. Along with Proverbs, these books are important because they give us glimpses into the inner lives of David and others. However, if you dig deeper, you'll gain insight into how to live as an overcomer regardless of your circumstances. In the last message, we walked through Psalm 77 in answering the question, “Where is Christ in my pain?” We were reminded of how the psalmist remembered the goodness of God, choosing to worship and rejoice rather than whine and reject God. Life is what I see as reality because of Christ, and godliness is what the world sees in me when it watches how I handle life.
