Scripture –

Psalm 27:1 – The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid.

Observation –

The Lord provides light where there is darkness.  The Lord is savior to all who have faith in Him.  The Lord is our strength and fortress to provide shelter.  The Psalmist ask the rhetorical question who shall I fear.


As in the ancient Near East when the Psalms were written, the Lord has to be my light in an increasingly dark world.  The light of the Lord must be out and present, not hidden, so the Word can illuminate my path of which I am to follow.  I can look s to no name other than Jesus, by which we can be saved.  The Bible says in Romans 10:9; because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. I need to fear God as that is the beginning of wisdom.  God, our creator, sustainer and redeemer is who I shall fear not man or any construct of man.

Prayer –


Thank you for the truth in your word and wisdom in the Psalm 27 that is so applicable for me today.  Let you be my light I follow for strength and salvation to glorify you.
