MY SALVATION

 

Read It


Psalm 27:1-4


“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?”

 

Discover It


After Samuel anointed David as king of Israel, it seemed that danger followed him wherever he went. Saul the former king tried to kill him numerous times. He and his small band of mighty men were constantly on the run, hiding in caves and running for their lives. Also, after he took the throne, there were persistent rebellions. Even his son Absolom led a civil war against David, causing him to flee for his life. But David trusted in God to defend and protect him. And the song he wrote here in Psalm 27 echoes down through the ages with his cry of bravery, “I will not fear for the Lord is my light and my salvation!”

 


Ask It


1. Why do you think David calls the Lord his “light”? List some characteristics of light that could describe God’s nature and character.


2. David also describes the Lord as his “salvation.” In Hebrew (the language of the Old Testament), this word is “yeshah” meaning - deliverance, salvation, rescue, safety, welfare, prosperity, and victory. How do you think God gave David confidence as he faced his enemies?


3. Finally, David describes God as the “stronghold” of his life. A stronghold is a place of strength, safety, defense, and security. God is like a fortress around us. What kind of things can God protect us from today?

 

Live It


1. My Light. Make the Lord your light by yielding your life to him. Then follow Jesus as He illuminates your path with His light and guidance.


2. My Salvation. Many people KNOW ABOUT GOD but don’t yet KNOW GOD? Have you made it personal? Can you say like David that God’s salvation is YOUR SALVATION? If the answer is no or you are not sure, ask Jesus in your heart today!


2. The Fortress of My Life. According to the Bible we live in a sinful, fallen, dangerous and complex world. Without God we are no match for the world, the flesh, and the devil. But with God we are more than conquerors. Jesus Christ is your defense, but only if you make Him your own.

 

Pray It


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. Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Teach me your way, Lord, and lead me in a straight path. (Psalm 27:4,7-8,10-11)
