Be confident in God

Psalm 27:3

Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.  NIV

David wrote this Psalm.  Earlier in the project, I looked at the first verse of this chapter.  But now, as I continue working through the “fear not” listings in my King James concordance, I’ve found myself back in this beautiful passage.

As I think about this verse in the context of the story of Jehoshaphat, it is truly a message of comfort.

I don’t expect that my little suburban existence will entail an army of flesh-and-blood soldiers besieging me, but sometimes it feels as though the worries that I face are like armies at war against me.

At those times, I will focus on the message of this verse, and I will be confident in God.

That’s what  I will think about today.
