Reading along with us in the first 30 chapters of Psalm? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 27 (ESV)

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?
2 When evildoers assail me
to eat up my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
it is they who stumble and fall.
3 Though an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
yet I will be confident.
4 One thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to inquire in his temple.
5 For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will lift me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up
above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent

I will sing and make melody to the Lord.

  1. Reading in Revelation and the worship before God’s throne (Jesus as King!) and I consider more how worship should be a larger part of my daily time with God.
    “And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.”

    Also, I love the last verse. “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” This is the spiritual gift of patience….not patience with children or with a goat, but patience in faith.

  2. What a great Psalm for fear and worship!! If the Lord is for me, who can be against me! And how important worship is to remind us of that and reinforce it in my life. “To gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple” is a tremendous help, a tremendous awareness and a tremendous privilege. How much peace and joy we lose out on because we don’t practice His presence or take on the discipline of worship (ie make sure it happens).

    And I am so glad God will never forsake me when others may and certainly will….
