Psalm 27 (KJV) is my favorite scripture because David had enemies even in his own family and in the midst of it all he didn’t seek revenge, because he had a relationship with the Father, who is our protector, comforter and provider.
David recognizes God for who he is. He is my source of light and no amount of trouble can darken the light he provides. He is my salvation, my savior, whom shall I fear? Romans 8:31 (KJV) What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Also, the Lord is my strength so I have nothing to be afraid of, God has me covered.
David had enemies all around him who were after him, but at the end of verse 3 he said…. in this will I be confident. David is saying I am trusting God though his enemies wanted to do him harm.
David pours out his heart that all he wanted to do is dwell in the house of the Lord, to be in God’s presence. David knew that being in God’s presence he would be protected and that is worth singing praises unto God.
David prays for God to hear him, have mercy on him, to teach him his ways, lead him in a plain path because of his enemies. David isn’t focus on how he can pay them back, he wants to be closer to God and please him.
Psalms 27:14 (KJV) David encouraged himself and others in the entire last verse. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
Remember Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown in the fiery furnace. Daniel 3:24-28 (KJV). Also, how God delivered Israel out of Egypt. Exodus (KJV)Ch. 1-6 God hears Israel’s cries. Chapters 7-18 he rescues them and Chapters 19-34 God makes a covenant with Israel.
Pray for victory over life’s battles. Deut. 20:4 (KJV)For the Lord God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
