Couple nights ago I could not fall asleep when this scripture lightly fell into my spirit, and the words became more pronounced as I thought about them. Drifting into sleep, the words became louder, and my spirit became more aware of what God was saying to me at that moment.
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?
When God is your light and your salvation, whom should you fear?
When the wicked advance against me, to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
My confidence in knowing, that God is my protector!!
Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
My confidence will not fail me
My heart will not fear
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
Let me stay in your presence Lord!
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Set me high upon a rock Lord
Keep me safe in your dwelling
Hide me in the shelter of your sacred tent
Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Savior.
Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
God is stronghold! I should not fear!
Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors
Come on somebody!
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
Throw them down Lord!
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
Do you feel strong! Renew your thoughts in the word of God!
I hope this was an encouragement to you, and a delight to the soul.
