12/20 Psalm 27:1-6 Praise God Before The Enemy
（Memorization Scripture: vv. 4-6）
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.
4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
[Sharing] In times of hardship and uncertainty we often lose sight and awareness of God’s presence in our lives. Psalm 27 is a beautiful reminder the Lord is our shelter. He provides for us and is our defender against those who seek to hurt us. The trials we face are nothing in light of the greatness of God. We do not need to be filled with fear and worry. We know the Author of life, and he is on our side.
Because of this great security we have in our Heavenly Father, we are blessed to pour out worship to him. We lift our hands and hearts to the Lord today in thanksgiving and praise for what he has done and continues to do for us. He is unrelenting and does not abandon his children.
Take heart on this day. As children of God, let us give praise to our Father who is worthy of receiving it. We praise him in our homes, with our families, and our places of work. We praise him with our children, our spouses, our friends, and the full body of Christ.
May God bless you abundantly today.
12/20 詩篇27:1-6 在仇敵面前讚美 神
當生活中充滿艱難與不確定時，我們在生活中常常會忽略 神的同在。但詩篇27提醒我們，神是我們的庇護。祂提供了我們一切所需，同時祂保護我們，不讓他人傷害我們。我們人生中的考驗，在 神的面前都是微不足道的。我們在生活中不必恐慌，也不必擔憂。我們認識生命的創造者，祂站在我們這一邊。
