Psalm 27:1 (NLT)
1 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?
Darkness, devastation, destruction, devil, death—these are things that scare many of us. Scary people, objects, and situations come our way. They’re real. We don’t deny them, and we don’t have to; we just deny them control.
The Lord is our light amid darkness; He’s our salvation in perilous situations. He’s inside of us, by our side, before us, and behind us. He surrounds us with an impenetrable shield, and yes, with songs of deliverance. So, when enemies rise before us, we don’t worry; we don’t fear; we rise above them. Our God is God Most High.
The Lord is God. His power transcends any and every threat coming our way. He has never failed, and He will never ever do. He’s loving, righteous, holy, and just. He’s not a malicious or capricious God who occasionally desires to see His children beaten down by their enemies just for the fun of it. There’s no ill-will in Him—no spot of mischief.
Enemies may abound, the mountains and hills may crumble, but our God is on our side; His throne is established. He comes and saves. His presence is protection. There’s nothing the enemy can do to those living in God’s secret place—under the Almighty’s wings.
There are those who wish our downfall; that will remain a wish. We don’t delight in our enemies’ failure, but their devices against us often boomerang to them. We don’t cower; we don’t get intimidated; we don’t get paralyzed into inaction. We live joyfully and victoriously—with our shoulders humbly squared; our heads humbly held high; melody remains in our hearts; confidence is in our every step.
We have a divine, full-coverage, lifetime protection. We’re dauntless. Unto Him be all the glory; unto Him be all the praise.
