Let’s dive deep into day 4 of our Psalms study! Today we will be tackling Psalm 27:1
Fear of failing, fear of what others might think, fear of being happy or unhappy… As moms we sometimes let fear get the best of us. It’s so incredibly important to understand we can’t do it all or be it all. Sometimes we just need to let go and let God take control of our situations and our life. Letting fear over take us can be detrimental to our mental state and even our physical well being.
Have you heard the recent song “Fear Is a Liar”? My kids are a little obsessed with this one recently, and honestly so am I. If you haven’t heard it before, I highly encourage you to look it up. AMAZING lyrics that will cause you to reevaluate some of that fear you let dwell in your daily life. Time to cast your fears in the fire and let God take the wheel!
Short & Sweet
Did you catch the theme today? Fear is real, and it can certainly eat you up alive if you let it. While searching for Psalms, I came across this one and I knew without a doubt it had to be included in the daily scriptures. There are 2 incredibly valuable phrases about fear include in this verse. Take a look.
“Whom shall I fear.”
”The LORD is my light and my salvation” – Seriously, with him by my side, whom shall I fear? I absolutely love this verse. It’s simple, beautifully spoken, and straight to the point. God is ever present. He brings light into my darkness and fills me with His saving grace. With the promise of salvation, I have absolutely no one to fear.
“Of whom shall I be afraid?”
“The LORD is the strength of my life” – Without Him, I have nothing. Life is hard and incredibly messy. If I didn’t have God to lean on, I would be completely lost and hopeless. Depending on Him gets me through both the mundane and the devastating. Again, He is ever present. He is my source of strength.
