Campus Community | Playlist Week 5


Continuing on in the Playlist series, Pastor David taught tonight from Psalm 121. This psalm is part of a collection of songs that act as a playlist of the uphill journey in the life of a believer. Pastor David shared three takeaways from psalm 121. First, we all have hills to climb. Life is full of mountains that may cause hurt and extreme pain, but in those moments God is not absent.  Scripture says that our life will be full of trouble, but we can grow in spiritual strength as trials come. Secondly, we all need help climbing mountains. When we cry to God for help we are acknowledging that our trials are bigger than ourselves. The enemy will lie and try to stunt us from being honest and transparent, but in God and godly counsel, we can find assistance in difficult times. Lastly, we all can find our help in God. At the end of Psalm 121, the psalmist writes of the truth of the gospel and seeing His provision. The Lord is our rescuer and the truth of the gospel prevails any mountain we may come to.



Psalm 121

“ lift up my eyes to the hills.

From where does my help come?

My help comes from the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;

the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil;

he will keep your life.

The Lord will keep

your going out and your coming in

from this time forth and forevermore.”


1 Peter 4:12-13

“ Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed”


Psalm 34:17-20

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.



“God where are you?” is not a cry of weakness but a cry of worship.

One way to battle the lies of depression is to remind ourselves of the truth of the gospel.

5 lies the enemy may tell us:

1. Asking for help means I lack faith.

2. Asking for help means I’m out of control.

3. Asking for help will obligate me to those who will help me.

4. Asking for help will only complicate and make things worse.

5. Asking for help will burden those who have their own hills to climb.

“I find myself frequently depressed in spirit–perhaps more so than any other person here–and I find no better cure for that depression than to trust in the Lord with all my heart and seek to realize afresh the power of the peace-speaking blood of Jesus” – Charles Spurgeon



1. Have you experienced a time that you overcame a hill in your life (Triumph or Tribulation)? What did support look like for you then?
2. When you are experiencing a difficult time, do you have a tendency to move towards people or withdrawal? Why do you think you do that?
3. Is there a lie you may be struggling with that keeps you from asking for help?
4. What areas of community have you found helpful in your life right now?
5. Who are people you can reach out to for more support? What might be holding you back from embracing more community?
6. Do you feel like you are in a crisis now and in need of relief?
