Day 18: Meditating on Psalms 27

Morning Word from the Source:

Psalm 27:1-14

The Lord gives me light and saves me. Why should I fear anyone? The Lord is my place of safety. Why should I be afraid? My enemies are evil. They will trip and fall when they attack me and try to eat me alive. Even if an army attacks me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if war breaks out against me, I will still trust in God. I'm asking the Lord for only one thing. Here is what I want. I want to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. I want to look at the beauty of the Lord. I want to worship him in his temple. When I'm in trouble, he will keep me safe in his house. He will hide me in the safety of his holy tent. He will put me on a rock that is very high. Then I will win the battle over my enemies who are all around me. At his holy tent I will offer my sacrifice with shouts of joy. I will sing and make music to the Lord. Lord, hear my voice when I call out to you. Show me your favor and answer me. My heart says, "Look to him!" Lord, I will look to you. Don't turn your face away from me. Don't turn me away because you are angry. You have helped me. God my Savior, don't say no to me. Don't desert me. My father and mother may desert me, but the Lord will accept me. Lord, teach me your ways. Lead me along a straight path. There are many people who beat me down. My enemies want to harm me. So don't turn me over to them. Witnesses who tell lies are rising up against me. They are trying to destroy me. Here is something I am still sure of. I will see the Lord's goodness while I'm still alive. Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don't lose hope. Wait for the Lord.

Meditation directions: 

For each verse, make a note for yourself to meditate on. Here are my notes: 

The Lord gives me light and saves me. Why should I fear anyone? 
-I have the gift of discernment through God's light! I don't have to be afraid of anyone who is against me or tries to hurt me. 

The Lord is my place of safety. Why should I be afraid?
-I will always be ok. No matter what I will always, always be ok. Because I am safe in God. 

My enemies are evil. They will trip and fall when they attack me and try to eat me alive. Even if an army attacks me, my heart will not be afraid. 
-I don't even have to address the people who try to come against me. God will fight my battles. I'm not affected by the opinions of my haters! 

Even if war breaks out against me, I will still trust in God. 
-This is tough!! BUT no matter HOW HARD IT GETS, I WILL TRUST GOD! I WILL BE VICTORIOUS!

I'm asking the Lord for only one thing. Here is what I want. I want to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. I want to look at the beauty of the Lord. I want to worship him in his temple. 
-I don't want anything else but to be happy. I want to live in God's grace every day of my life. I will praise Him everyday because he has given me his grace. 

When I'm in trouble, he will keep me safe in his house. He will hide me in the safety of his holy tent. He will put me on a rock that is very high. Then I will win the battle over my enemies who are all around me. 
-He will always fight my battles. I don't have worry about A THING!

At his holy tent I will offer my sacrifice with shouts of joy. I will sing and make music to the Lord. 
-I will be happy. I will be joyful. I will sing songs of contentment. I will give all of the praise to God, through my good deeds. 

Lord, hear my voice when I call out to you. Show me your favor and answer me. My heart says, "Look to him!" Lord, I will look to you. Don't turn your face away from me. Don't turn me away because you are angry. You have helped me. God my Savior, don't say no to me. Don't desert me. My father and mother may desert me, but the Lord will accept me. 
-My mother and my father did desert me. But you never turned away from me Lord. Thank you for keeping me!

Lord, teach me your ways. Lead me along a straight path. 
-Continue to humble me Lord. Let me learn from my experiences so that I may go in the right direction, every step of the way. 

There are many people who beat me down. My enemies want to harm me. So don't turn me over to them. Witnesses who tell lies are rising up against me.They are trying to destroy me. 
-I will not lose. I will not lose. I will not lose. 

Here is something I am still sure of. I will see the Lord's goodness while I'm still alive. Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don't lose hope. Wait for the Lord.
-I am never going to lose my faith. I am strong. I will wait on God because He has never failed me.
