Whom Shall I Fear?

Description

In the midst of the fray and the fury, keep your eyes on Jesus. He is fighting for you.

The LORD is my light and my salvation –

     whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the stronghold of my life –

     whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advanced against me

     to devour me,

it is my enemies and my foes

     who will stumble and fall.

Though an army besiege me,

     my heart will not fear;

though war break out against me,

     even then I will be confident.

One 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.

For 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 the rock.

Then 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.  Psalm 27:1-6 (NIV)

REFLECTION

In the midst of the fray and fury, keep your eyes on Jesus. He is fighting for you. Emmanuel is near. Though accusations fly and the enemy assaults your thoughts, though people try to cut you down and drag your name through the mud, though schemes are launched and temptations roar, though your flesh fails and screams for revenge—your hope is in the One who fights for you. You are safe in God’s love and in the power of His mighty name.

MEDITATION

Fear Not to Trust Me in the Storm

Fear not to trust Me in the storm,

I’m always very near.

I come thy needless fear to claim,

Then, weary ones, don’t fear.

Refrain

Fear not, I am with thee,

Fear not, I am with thee,

Fear not, I am with thee,

Am with thee all the way.


I may not always seem so near

As thou wouldst have Me be;

But in the calm and in the storm,

I all thy dangers see.

Refrain

Fear not trust My mighty arm;

It bro’t salvation down.

I suffered mush to give thee life,

To give to the a crown. J.W. Howe, Stanzas 1-3

PRAYER

Father, in the middle of the storm I am setting my hope in You. You fought for me and You are greater than all my enemies. Nothing I face today is more powerful than you. You are the solid ground beneath my feet. Thank You for surrounding me. Give me peace in the presence of my enemies, knowing that You see me and defend me in Your love. Amen.
