"Though None Go With Me"
It sort of struck me this evening while reading a Psalm that David was a real man. He really faced a lot of garbage in His life. And He really trusted a real God. And God really delivered Him. Really. The Bible is full of accounts from the lives of real people who lived real lives and experienced the living God through all sorts of circumstances. So, no matter what the future holds or how many people I know fall away or deny this gospel, I am not alone in this faith. Not only does God go with me, but I have the faithful witnesses of the countless souls who lived it before me. "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2. I highly suggest reading chapter 11; it talks about particular "witnesses" who help to make up this "cloud". :)
