TODAY’S WORD…

.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—

so why should I be afraid?

The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,

so why should I tremble?

.

Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness

while I am here in the land of the living.

.

Wait patiently for the Lord.

Be brave and courageous.

Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

– Psalm 27:1,13-14 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

The Lord is my light…He is to me the source of light – a light that guides and leads me.

Where darkness means distress, trouble, and sorrow; light is the opposite, and God furnishes us with His caring light that makes troubles disappear,

and our way bright, manageable and joyful.

.

and my salvation – the Lord is my Saviour, my Deliverer, my Redeemer.

.

so why should I be afraid?

If God is on my side, then when should I fear.

He is more than abundantly able to protect me,

and my faith makes me confidently trust in Him.

The Lord is my Shepherd and my Friend – of this I am convinced.

.

The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger

In itself life is feeble, and is easily crushed out by trouble and sorrow,

but the Lord protects me and gives me life.

.

…so why should I tremble?

As long as God is my fortress and strength, there is nothing to fear.

No one has power to ruin my life if I allow the Lord to defend me.

If I place my full trust in Him, then I am not afraid, because I know that I am safe.

.

Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness…

In times of trials, I have confidence in God

and I believe that He will carry me through;

that He will sustain me through my life, in every circumstance.

.

Wait patiently for the Lord.

Trust in the Lord;

rely upon Him;

come to Him in trouble and danger;

and wait faithfully and full of hope for His intervention.

.

Be brave and courageous.

Be strong.

Do not give up.

Do not let your resolve weaken.

Do not be dismayed – always and in everything, hope and trust in the Lord.

.

Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

Yes, in all moments of suffering and difficulty,

instead of feeling helpless and rejected,

instead of sinking down in despair,

instead of giving up all effort,

we move on with our life, always following God’s path,

waiting expectantly but not impatiently

as we place our trust solely in Him.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, You are my light and my salvation;

You are my fortress and my strength.

Lord I trust in You.
