Meditations in the Psalms

February 21st

Psalm 27:1-6

What a comfort and blessing this psalm is to our hearts! Life is filled with many fears and anxieties – we so need to trust in the Lord and not be afraid of what others can do to us. The psalmist makes it clear that the priority of the believer is worship or as he puts it in verse 4 “to behold the beauty of the LORD.” The songwriter said, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus; look full into His wonderful face; and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”

  1. The strength of the Lord – verse 1
  2. The stumbling of the wicked – verse 2
  3. The stability of the believer – verse 3
  4. The seeking of the Lord – verse 4
  5. The safety of the Lord – verse 5
  6. The sacrifices of joy – verse 6

May this day be filled with “sacrifices of joy” to the Lord! Yes, “sing praises unto the LORD!”
