Found in Psalm 27: Courage
The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
As we start a new week, it is easy to be overwhelmed by all that lies ahead. Maybe we face exams this week, or difficult situations with our friends, or our job is stressful and we feel under pressure.
These verses in Psalm 27 are amazing, because they show us that no matter what we are facing, we can be confident because God is on our side. We can step out in courage.
God is described as being our light, shining into the darkness. He is our salvation; he saves us so that we can have a relationship with him. And, He is our stronghold; He will keep us safe, and not let us stray out of His care.
So we can be confident that whatever is going to happen this week, we can have courage because we are loved by a mighty God who saves and protects us in every situation we’ll face.
Father God, we thank you that you are our light, salvation and stronghold. Help us to trust in this truth this week whole-heartedly, and to be courageous and confident in you. Amen.
