Re:Verse reading—Psalm 27 (day one)
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear. . .though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident.”–v 1, 3
There is a beautiful confidence that God promises His children. Part of His ordinary grace. Regular armor for every soldier. Peter and John had it. (Acts 4:13) David too (today’s text)
It is not really the absence of fear, rather the presence of a larger confidence/focus. God is near. I can, therefore, be confident.
Many believers I know (myself included) fall short in our experience of this great gift. We are worried and distracted and anxious. Why?
The secret is in seeking the Lord. “Seek my face!” says the Lord in v 8. “I do” says David in response. “I will” he says in v 4.
People who seek God when danger is NOT present find Him near when it IS. Is HE what you want, even when things are calm/easy?
One thought on “Strength to the seekers”
Great reminder, “People who seek God when danger is NOT present find Him near when it IS.” God is a surer who is what I want, even when things are normal.
We, believers, always can trust God to be present when we need Him when others fail us and walk away. In God, we trust and seek His guidance and protection!
