Psalm 86: Trusting God Who Delivers and Sustains Us:
Our study of Psalm 86 returns us repeatedly to the idea of recognizing our neediness and God's loving willingness to always sustain us. We discuss Mary's need for a Savior even though she did not sin and our complete dependence on God for our very existence as well as our spiritual perfection. We touch briefly on consecration to God and the difference between sin as a way of life and individual sins. We focus on Bible Study as a means rather than an end and some of the messianic inferences in this psalm.
