Volume 10, Issue 28: Fearless

I have to tried to write from the twenty seventh chapter of the book of Psalms before but I couldn't go through with it because it is quite personal to me. This is one of my favorites portions of Scripture that I declare and lift my praises from most mornings. Going back to my Bible study moments after writing "You've Got This," a portion of Psalms 27 popped up and I knew now was a good time to write from it.

David writes, “Light, space, zest— that’s GOD! So, with him on my side I’m fearless, afraid of no one and nothing. When vandal hordes ride down ready to eat me alive, those bullies and toughs fall flat on their faces. When besieged, I’m calm as a baby. When all hell breaks loose, I’m collected and cool.” Psalm‬ ‭27:1-3‬ ‭MSG‬‬

The intensity of David's troubles was probably ten thousand times the intensity of the troubles I have faced. But I think some of the stories in our journeys bear resemblance to some of David's stories. What differentiates us is the attention we pay to God's workings in our troubles. When you recognize that God rescued you from fierce attacks, you are left in awe, and you face your next troubles fearless, collected and cool.

After writing of his disposition in the face of trouble, David goes on to express his intended worship. “God holds me head and shoulders above all who try to pull me down. I’m headed for his place to offer anthems that will raise the roof! Already I’m singing God-songs; I’m making music to GOD.” Psalm‬ ‭27:6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

There will always be people who try to pull us down. But when we have experienced God's charge and seen how he holds us head and shoulders above our opposition, giving them a run for their money, we are lost in adoration of our King and Defender, with praises that words cannot express.

We join David in saying, "Point me down your highway, GOD; direct me along a well-lighted street; show my enemies whose side you’re on. Don’t throw me to the dogs, those liars who are out to get me, filling the air with their threats. I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness in the exuberant earth. Stay with GOD! Take heart. Don’t quit. I’ll say it again: Stay with GOD.” Psalm‬ ‭27:11-14‬ ‭MSG‬‬. Because we don't stand a chance without Him.

God reiterates the point for us in the ninety first chapter of the book of Psalm. He says, ““If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says GOD, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!”” Psalm‬ ‭91:14-16‬ ‭MSG‬‬
