Monday Morning Scripture (Wk47/2021) – Psalm 27

A Psalm of Fearless Trust in God.

Psalm of David

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the refuge and fortress of my life—whom shall I dread?

2 When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.

3 Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war arise against me, even in this I am confident.

4 One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty [the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur] of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.

5 For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock.

6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, in His tent I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious and compassionate to me and answer me.

8 When You said, “Seek My face [in prayer, require My presence as your greatest need],” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I will seek [on the authority of Your word].”

9 Do not hide Your face from me, do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; do not abandon me nor leave me, O God of my salvation!

10 Although my father and my mother have abandoned me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].

11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, and lead me on a level path because of my enemies [who lie in wait].

12 Do not give me up to the will of my adversaries, for false witnesses have come against me; they breathe out violence.

13 I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

14 Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord.

Psalm 27:1-14 (AMP)
