Trust and Obey (7 of 23)
Series: Life by the Book
Jim Perdue
Psalm 119:41-48

It is vital that we learn how to live according to God's Word. For the Christian, the Bible is our instruction book for life. The Bible provides our life, hope, truth, joy, comfort, peace, guide, direction, protection, and defense…just to name a few. So we must learn how to live Life By The Book. Indeed, we are learning what that means as we study Psalm 119. Tonight, we come to 119:41-48 as we think about the sermon subject, Trust and Obey. READ TEXT - PRAY

Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.

*Dwight L. Moody's favorite verse was Isaiah 12:2: ''I will trust and not be afraid.'' He used to say: ''You can travel first-class or second-class to heaven. Second class is, ''When I am afraid I put my trust in You.'' (Psalm 56:3) First class is, ''I will trust, and not be afraid.'''' That is the better way. Why not buy a first-class ticket?*

Psalm 118:9, ''It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man'' And here, we see what it means to trust and obey. He ''trusts'' in the Word (42), ''hopes'' in the Word (43), ''seeks'' the Word (45), ...
