Psalm 27

1The 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?

2When the wicked advance against me

to devour me,

it is my enemies and my foes

who will stumble and fall.

3Though an army besiege me,

my heart will not fear;

though war break out against me,

even then I will be confident.

4One thing I ask from the Lord,

this only do I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life,

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him in his temple.

5For in the day of trouble

he will keep me safe in his dwelling;

he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent

and set me high upon a rock.

6Then my head will be exalted

above the enemies who surround me;

at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;

I will sing and make music to the Lord.

7Hear my voice when I call, Lord;

be merciful to me and answer me.

8My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”

Your face, Lord, I will seek.

9Do not hide your face from me,

do not turn your servant away in anger;

you have been my helper.

Do not reject me or forsake me,

God my Savior.

10Though my father and mother forsake me,

the Lord will receive me.

11Teach me your way, Lord;

lead me in a straight path

because of my oppressors.

12Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,

for false witnesses rise up against me,

spouting malicious accusations.

13I remain confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the Lord

in the land of the living.

14Wait for the Lord;

be strong and take heart

and wait for the Lord.

    Thank you, this was for me and my family – we’ve been going through a hard time where it seems that everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. That’s a good reminder of the Lord’s protection around us, even when the enemy is attacking!

  • Steve K.

    Thank you for posting this. It is so needed and timely in my life right now. If I were not a son of God, I can’t imagine where I would be or how I would feel in these times. The overwhelming sense of hopelessness would be crushing. Our Father is Good!

    Tears are streaming down my face. Thanks Frank.

    Years and years of financial struggle. . . this was for me today.

  • Gene Smith

    I always need the reminder to trust in the Lord and his promise to keep me in his dwelling. Thanks my friend.

  • Nikki

    This Psalm has been an anchor in my life for at least a decade. Up until a couple of months ago I was praying through it every day. Lately, I have been consumed by my research and somehow lost touch with it (I struggle greatly with loss of memory). Thank you (so much) for the reminder.

  • Amanda K

    Thank you, I too needed to be reminded.

  • Darren

    Thank you. I needed to be reminded of this as I enter to preach.
