Re:Verse reading—Psalm 27 (day four)
I have a friend who is deployed. He is in a war zone…one of the hotspots of the world. He is a warrior like King David. When he reads Psalm 27:1-3, it is with different eyes than mine. Can we really have confidence that God is with us…even in the battles of life? Absolutely! David did not just write Psalms out of the experiences of his life…these words were inspired by the Holy Spirit. They are the words of God.
So…when God makes a promise, can we trust Him to keep it? Most assuredly…YES! God keeps His promises…it is His character and He will never act contrary to His character. Can we have courage when life gets difficult? When Scripture says “fear not”, can we really stand firm in our faith? Yes and Yes. “He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.” (Psalm 91:4) He redeems us from fear.
