Free & Fit - Summer with the Psalms - Thursday 27th June Psalm 27

Summer with the Psalms

Thursday 27th June Psalm 27

“The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident. The one thing I ask of the Lord— the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock. Then I will hold my head high above my enemies who surround me. At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the Lord with music. Hear me as I pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Do not turn your back on me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me, O God of my salvation! Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close. Teach me how to live, O Lord. Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me. Do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I’ve never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence. Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭27‬:‭1‬-‭14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Pastor Tim’s Reflections

Often in life we face obstacles and other peoples problems become louder than our own. We somehow get forgotten, under utilized and left to fend for ourselves. Perhaps this is not your story, perhaps you are the centre of attention and are inflicting your own problems on other people. We see you, we love you and we need you! We all need to be known and value; no matter where you are today, God loves you!

The problem is not the problem, it’s the response and it’s the influence it has on us. If we allow somebody else or someone else to impact our faith, we have to test and approve if they are from God. If they are not from God, if they are merely human and are causing us difficulty we have to surrender their influence on our lives back to God. Not hold onto them, no to resent them and instead to forgive them and release them from our grip of anxiety.

Today let’s put aside all the evil that so easily entangles us and put first the Armor and Promises of God in our lives. Let’s put the belt of Truth, shield of Faith, sword of the Holy Spirit, helmet of Salvation, breastplate of Righteousness and boots of the Gospel on to stand firm on the foundation of Jesus Christ.


Almighty God of all creation teach us to be better, help us to forgive others and to not blame other in our obstacles. Help us to be more like you, less like us and more in step with your Holy Spirit in Jesus name. Amen

“So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”

‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬
