What can man do to me? {Psalm 118:6}

 

Another version of this same verse says "The Lord is on my side".  This is an important thing to remember every day, in every circumstance.  Sometimes other people don't like us, and it can cause us fear, anger or maybe sadness.  Sometimes those other people do things or say things that are mean or hurtful.  In those moments, God wants us to remember that He is with us!

2} What do you think the verse means when it says "The Lord is with me"?  What does the phrase "mere mortals" mean?
3} Why should we not be afraid of what people can do to us? (God is BIGGER) Who do we have on our side?  Why is this important to remember?
4} Do you have any enemies or people who don't like you?  Do you ever feel afraid when you have to talk to them or be around them?
5}Sometimes we are afraid of someone or something because they can really hurt us, do you think this verse is telling us to stand up to someone who is a danger to us?  Why or why not?  (For example, we wouldn't walk out in front of a moving car just because "God is with us")
6} This verse was written by King David.  When he was a teenager, he was asked to kill a giant named Goliath (1 Samuel 17).  Do you think that David knew from experience that God was on his side?  Does this help you trust in God?
