Deliver Us from Evil (6 of 8)
Series: Roller Coaster - Facing the Ups and Downs of Life

Psalm 34:1-22

What a great, great time to worship and to praise and to celebrate and to have fun. And maybe this was your first time here, and you say, ''Man, this is a different kind of church.'' Well, we don't really do this every Sunday. But I think it's appropriate every Sunday for people to wear burnt orange. But anyway you know our season's getting ready to start for the Texas Longhorns. And I may have to add a paper bag to go along with this shirt, I don't know. We could have a bad year. But anyway, it's exciting to worship the Lord.

If you have your Bible, turn to Psalm 34. We're in a series on the psalms. We're calling it ''Roller Coaster: Facing the Ups and Downs of Life.'' Now everybody loves to have the ups. We love to have the good things. We love to have the triumphs. But we all know that life is also filled with troubles. We do have triumphs, and we do have victories, but with the triumphs there are troubles and there are tragedies with the victories. There are also valleys. Life is just like that.

Job experienced lots of victories in his life, lots of high moments, lots of ups in his life, but he also experienced tremendous tragedy and tremendous hurt and pain and tremendous down time and downs in life. Job said this: ''Man who is born of woman is short-lived and full of trouble.'' Full of trouble! Anybody say amen to full of trouble? Have you experienced some trouble, maybe in the last week or two, maybe in the last day? Trouble is one of those things, and storms in life, they're just a thing that everyone in this room, we're either coming into a storm, in the middle of a storm, a problem, a trouble, a trial, or we're just coming out of a storm. And when you just come out, you think, Man, I'm done with that. But then, you go back in line and you're back in, ''Well, now I'm coming into another storm.'' That's just the way life is.
