FOUNDATION: “The Lord is my light and my salvation”

The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Today’s Text: Psalm 27:1-3, 14


Those living the life of faith recognize that with God in control, there is no reason to fear:

PSALM 27:1-3, 14

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
MASADA 25.5.11

The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.

Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.

Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!


Rather than panicking or being overwrought with anxiety when confronted with difficult circumstances, Christians can boldly meet life’s challenges trusting God to bring them through victorious.
