Psalms 3, Week 3:

Scripture: Psalm 3

Preaching Pastor: John Nicholas

Sermon Title: Our Sure Hope

Main Idea: When we study Psalm 3 we will learn three things about the our walk with God, the way things look, the way things are, and the strength we get from the promises of God.

We know that the blessed man is deeply nourished by the Word.  This week we see that man’s blessings in confidence.

Psalm 3:3/4

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,

my glory, and the lifter of my head.

I cried aloud to the Lord,

and He answered me from His Holy hill

How can we be like the Psalmist in chaotic times? When the world is literally declaring itself foe to the church. When buildings are threatened by evenings of focused rage over Roe V. Wade? We dive in and look at the Psalmist’s song of worship and praise.


The way things look are not necessarily the way things are. We must always look to God’s word to know the truth.

Go Do:

As we prepare to worship Sunday, as you reflect on our study and prepare for future studies (Psalm 3 and beyond), reflect on your passion for the Word. 

Ask yourself:

  • How can I find:
    • Service to the Lord in Fear
    • Rejoice, and
    • Trembling

How can we have a healthy worshipful fear of God?
