Today's reading: Psalm 27:1-14
Fear is a powerful emotion that can pull our attention right off of God—if we allow it. What I find so attractive about this psalm is how David is able to stand firm even though he's experiencing some difficult and scary circumstances. Instead of giving in to fearful thoughts and feelings, he claims God as his light, salvation and stronghold.
"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?" (vs. 1)
What encouragement do you draw from this passage? When life throws you a curve ball and fearful thoughts come crashing in, is it your habit to turn to God and His Word? Do you have a particular verse/passage that helps you stand firmly and overcome fearful thoughts and feeling afraid? Tami
