The LORD is my light amidst my darkness
and my rescue in times of trouble.
So whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1Fear is a powerful thing. We all have known fear at some point in our life. Fear can undermine our faith, paralyze our progress, and blur the vision we have received from God. Fear robs us of our peace and joy.
David claimed that his heart would “know no fear”. The reason for his confidence was that the LORD was his light, his salvation, and his protector. This psalm is a reminder to us all that it is He who protects us from danger.*
“FATHER, help me to see the truth in your word, You are my light and my salvation. You are my protector from danger and from evil. Help me, Father, to draw close to you and to rest in the confidence I have in You. Amen
