This is a sermon I preached at St Peter & St Paul Shepton Mallet on Psalm 138.
David is a successful and powerful king, but even he was fearful sometimes and needed to trust in God’s faithfulness to get him through.
God keeps his promises, such as his promise to Abraham that he would be a “great nation”. And because God is faithful, we can trust in him.
Of course, reading other people’s stories is great, but it’s also important that we can identify our own experiences of God’s faithfulness to us. Sometimes it’s not easy to find them though, especially when the going is rough. God won’t necessarily stop the trouble from happening, but he does promise to be with us, and that gives us hope, because God is faithful.
Listen to the whole sermon above.
