Behold Your God (Ps. 46:8-11)

As Christians, how are we to handle fear, anxiety, and doubt? In a world where evil often appears to triumph, where pain and loss are common realities, how are we to deal with feelings of worry and uncertainty, our fear of death and suffering? The Psalmist provides an answer to this question by providing us with two specific commands: “Come, behold” and, “Be still and know” (Ps. 46:8,10). We are to remember his wondrous acts of judgment and salvation throughout history, his eternal and righteous kingdom, and to rest in the knowledge of God and his glorious attributes. In this sermon, Pastor Matt encourages believers to behold our ineffable and majestic God who is not only seated on his throne but who is also Immanuel, God with us (John 1:14; Heb. 8:1).
