Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


An Unshakable Foundation
by Charles R. Swindoll

Though a host encamp against me, 
my heart will not fear; . . . 
I shall be confident.
Psalm 27:3

The Hebrew term used by David [in this psalm] and translated "confident" does not mean self-reliant nor brave, humanly speaking. 

In Hebrew it means "to trust, to be secure, to have assurance." 

Its Arabic counterpart is picturesque: "to throw oneself down upon one's face, to lie upon the ground." 

The point here is that the source of David's confidence and stability was not his own strength—but God. His Lord was his only foundation for rock-like stability. 

What an unshakable foundation!

When pressure mounts, when a groundswell of fear invites panic, to whom do you turn?
