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 the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. 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. 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. 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.
There are times when we need to hear that God is on our side and that we are not just safe, but completely safe! Take time today to know and to feel the security of being held by the LORD. In doing so we will be drawing near to the LORD...dwelling in His house.
Praise. Lord God, my light and salvation, hear my heart felt praise and thanksgiving. In Jesus's name. Amen.
