Psalm 27 is a beautiful song of confidence and hope in God. The Psalmist’s confidence was particularly noticeable in verse 3: “Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.” I love this verse because I hope to have that same confidence and faith in God and my circumstances. David could have WHOLE armies after him and he would still not fear and his confidence in God would not waiver.
Wow. I want that. I need that. I can have that. As I draw closer to God through prayer, scripture, and fellowship, my confidence in him will naturally grow. Just think about it. If I met a stranger on the street, my confidence in their ability to protect me or guide me would be zero. On the contrary, my confidence in my closest friend would be much stronger. The same applies to our ability to trust in God and be confident in him. Are you feeling confident?
