CONFIDENCE IN GOD
Ps. 27:1-14
I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord [ Ps. 27:13 ]

The psalmist placed his confdence in God. He called God his light and salvaton, and the strength of his life. He was sure that he would overcome every atack of the wicked, and his enemies. Trials come to everyone but unbelief is the undoing of man. Beware brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departng from the living God (Heb. 3:12). Unbelief is evil; it’s like confrontng God that He doesn’t mean what He says or that He is incapable of performing what He promised to do.

You can only please God by living in faith (Heb. 11:6). Trust in Him at all tmes, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us (Ps. 62:8). The Lord is your shepherd and you can depend on Him right in the valley of the shadow of death. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me (Ps. 23:4). The proper knowledge of God’s presence with you will help you to overcome the fear of evil. You can say with the psalmist: The Lord is my fortress, protectng me from danger, so why should I tremble? (v. 3 NIV)

Let your heart be fxed on the Lord. When fear creeps into your heart, trust in God and be confdent. Know that God is for you (Ps. 56:3, 9). Be assured that God is on your side (Ps. 118:6). No threat of man can withstand the power of God. You will have to fght the fght of faith- a fght that you will win. Always believe that you will see the goodness of the Lord in your life and all that pertains to you. Be brave and courageous; wait for the Lord.

Prayer:Father, shield me away from trouble today. I prophesy the peace of God to every troubled area of my life, my home and my naton. I pray that the name of Jesus will be honoured in my life and in my family always.

Confession: The Lord will guard me and keep me in perfect and constant peace because my mind (both its inclinaton and its character) is stayed on God. I commit myself to God, I lean on Him and I hope confdently in Him. The Lord is my light and my salvaton; He is the stronghold of my life.
