“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?
“Though an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
yet I will be confident.
“Teach me your way, O Lord,
and lead me on a level path
because of my enemies.
Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
for false witnesses have risen against me,
and they breathe out violence.
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living!
Wait for the Lord;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord!” (Ps. 27:1, 3, 11-14)
When we receive Jesus Christ into our hearts and lives to be Savior and Lord of our lives, we should understand that he is absolutely in control of our destiny. Nothing will happen to us but he has allowed it, and he has allowed it for a purpose in our lives, and for his glory. It does not mean we will not ever feel fear (the emotion), but that we have no reason to ever give way to fear to where we allow it to control our lives and our choices in life. Jesus may not rescue us from our circumstances, but he will always be there to bring us safely (spiritually) through them.
Hear my Voice
An Original Work / July 9, 2012
Based off Psalm 27
The Lord is my great salvation.
He’s the stronghold of my life.
When my enemies attack me,
My heart will not fear at all.
Though a war break out against me,
Confident in Christ I’ll be.
Of the Lord, I ask that I may
Live with Him eternally.
Hear my voice, Lord, when I call you.
Merciful to me You’ll be.
Though my relatives forsake me,
My Lord God will receive me.
Teach me Your way, O my Jesus.
Lead me in Your righteousness.
I will sacrifice to my Lord.
I will sing with joyfulness.
I am confident that I will
See the goodness of the Lord.
All the richness of His blessings,
My Lord has for me in store.
He asks me to be of courage;
To be strong and to take heart,
Patiently as I wait for Him,
And from Him to ne’er depart.
