TOPIC: ‘WHOM SHALL I FEAR’
TEXT: PSALM 27
Good morning dearly beloved. As we rise up this morning, l would like us to read and declare Psalms 27 over our lives and our loved ones with all confidence and boldness.
*PSALMS 27:1–14 NIV –
“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? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. 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. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord . 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. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Teach me your way, Lord ; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations. I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord ; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord”.
Brethren, as we have declared So shall it be in Jesus Mighty Name. The Lord told Moses in Numbers 14:28 to tell the people that as they have spoken in His ears so He will do to them.
In this Psalm David declared with all boldness and confidence that as long as the Lord is his light and salvation he will neither fear nor be afraid of any enemies.
Beloved, there is a lot of fear around us and in the entire world now because of insecurity and with the 2nd wave of the coronavirus killing people every day. The new variant is said to be more contagious than the first.
We should however not be afraid at all but be bold like King David to declare ‘The Lord is my light and my salvation WHOM SHALL I FEAR ‘.
Our father in the Lord, Daddy GO has told us and assured us through the word of God never to be afraid. And as led by the Holy Spirit He has directed that the first phase of our fast this year should be to give thanks and praises to God .
So, I ask us , if we are thanking and praising God why should we fear or be afraid . Brethren, what is that problem or the challenges that are facing us that the the Lord cannot handle.? We should be glad that we are starting off our fasting this year with praises and thanks to God as this is said to work faster than prayers, therefore all the stubborn challenges are in trouble as they have no choice than to pack their baggages and go. Like the host of Pharaoh in Exodus 14:28 they will all perish in the Red Sea in Jesus name.
I declare brethren , because the Lord is our light and salvation, we will not fear, we will go through this new year with confidence and nothing shall make us to be afraid in Jesus mighty name. However, I will implore us to continue to observe all the safety measures of Covid 19 as directed even as we also continue to pray and put our trust in the only one whose precious Blood had been shed centuries ago to deliver us from the power of sin and death, that is our Lord JESUS CHRIST. I pray that the Lord will keep us and our loved ones, His church, and our nation secured in His love and may we all experience the supernatural and the miraculous this new year in Jesus mighty name.
WE WILL ALL OUTLIVE THE PANDEMIC AND ALL OUR PROBLEMS IN JESUS NAME .
We will pray this Psalm with thanksgiving as the Lord laid it in my heart to do today.
Let us pray:
Father, we declare with all confidence and with a heart of gratitude this morning that you are our light and our salvation , therefore we will not fear what man or circumstances can do to us . We thank you because When the enemies come like a flood upon us they stumble and fall because you always raise a standard against them . We thank you because thousands are falling by our side daily, and ten thousand at our right hand, but we rest, assured in your mercy that no evil will come near us. Lord we thank you because you have always and you will always keep us safe in your dwelling and hide us in the shelter of your tent . Thank you father for lifting our heads above all our enemies who surround us. We are grateful that when we call upon you, in mercy, you answer us. We give you glory o Lord, even as our hearts nudges us to seek your face, you will not hide your face away from us in anger. Thank you our lord and saviour because you have never left us and you will not leave us nor forsake us but you will teach us your way and lead us in a straight path. We thank you because you will not allow the desires of our enemies to thrive over us and we remain confident that we will see your goodness in the land of the living as we continue to wait upon you today and even in the days ahead. Thank you faithful father, in Jesus most wonderful name we have prayed. AMEN!!
Let Somebody shout Hallelujah!
Have a Blessed and Praiseful day.
