Finding Hope When
Optimism Is Gone,
Dr. Bob Setzer, Jr. preaching

Psalms 27:1-5, 7-9, 13-14
1 Corinthians 1:15, 17-18
Matthew 4:18-23

The 27th Psalm ascends to the height of joy and confidence (v. 1) and then descends to the depths of fear and despair (v. 9). By the end of the Psalm, the Psalmist is left “waiting for the Lord” (v. 14). What does such hope look like when optimism is no longer possible.
