Part 1 of 3 – Psalm 441 O God, we have heard with our ears,
Our fathers have told us
The work that You did in their days,
In the days of old.
You with Your own hand drove out the nations;
Then You planted them;
You afflicted the peoples,
Then You spread them abroad.
For by their own sword they did not possess the land,
And their own arm did not save them,
But Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, for You favored them.

            There is a time in the life of most Christians celebrate God’s victories that brought them through. Here, in this Psalm of a communal lament we find the psalmist recalling, and perhaps celebrating in his heart the victories of God in the past. The deliverance from Egypt, the conquest of Canaan, and every victory since he attributes to God. He recognizes the “favored” status of the Israelites.

            Perhaps you have attended Church week after week and have felt lulled into the complacency of absolute trust. God will fix everything. I don’t need to stress. I don’t need to worry. Then, suddenly disaster comes upon you;  a sickness, an abandonment, the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, the failure of a system you believed in. What then? What happens when your faith is challenged, tested, shaken?
