Though a host encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against me… I shall be confident.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Josh Peglow takes the pulpit to share a Psalm, a prayer, a very raw and vulnerable cry to God from King David. And while this psalm demonstrates fearless trust, courageous confidence, and unwavering faith… it also shows us something else: David is scared.
“Please don’t leave me Lord.”
It’s hard to imagine someone of his stature feeling this way… and yet, he does. And by God’s grace it is recorded for us as an example to pattern and learn from — an encouraging imperative.
For as David concludes:
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord, In the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.
Avg Guy: …It means, mustering the courage and taking a leaping step into the dark.
Avg Gal: …It’s channeling the power that comes from positive thinking to bring about what you want.
SBC Host: These are NOT Biblical views of faith.
Avg Guy/Gal: Oh.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows how the author not only defines faith for us, but gives us example after example of those that went before, who knew what it meant to live by faith: the saints of the Old Testament.
