Today’s Reading:

Psalm 27

“The Lord is my light and my salvation. Whom will, I fear? The lord is the strength of my life. Of whom will I be afraid?”                                                                              ( Psalm 27:1)


Four mighty hunters started on a hunt for a lion. Before they embarked on that terrible journey, they had several discussions on how to go about their journey so that they would all return safely. After much discussion, they decided to go with both offensive and defensive weapons so that their lives would not be lost in the process. The last weapon they took along was a dog. After a long journey into the thick bush, they saw a lion far off and they decided to stay strategically putting the dog forward. The dog has been trained to face anyone and anything. The dog started toward the Lion while the hunters were watching in their hideouts. The Lion was happy that another meat had come into his domain. The dog was so bold and confident while the lion was wondering what gave this prey such confidence. At the end of it all, the lion was caught alive with the help of the dog.

From the foregoing, the dog can't face a lion but because of the backbones the dog has which happen to be the hunters, it was confidence. Likewise, we cannot fight the battles of life with our strength unless God is with us. Psalm 27 is a Psalm of David written when he was confronted with danger. He asked this question twice in verse one, ‘Whom will I fear?’ That statement is that of confidence in God. And it set the tone for the rest of the verses. It must sink deep into our hearts as children of God that God is with us therefore nothing should move us. All we need to do is take our place and exercise our authority in him. Are your enemies surrounding you determined to eat up your flesh? Do not fear, for they will stumble and fall. Do you see an army or war surrounding you from all corners? They will soon be crushed. Any time you exercise fear, you are limiting the power of God and giving the devil a chance to win. Be confident that no matter how strong the battle of life is, it cannot overcome you because the Lord is your light and salvation.

Read through Psalm 27 which is our text and you will be confident that the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. As the dog faced the lion and surely it was never wounded, in like manner you will triumph over your enemy. You will sing songs of victory in Jesus' name.

To surrender your life to Christ, say this prayer aloud:

Father, I acknowledge my sin against You. I repent and ask for forgiveness, in the name of Jesus. I believe and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. By the power of Your Holy Spirit, take control of my heart and lead me in Your path of righteousness. Thank You, Lord!  If you said the above short prayer, Congratulations! Prayerfully look for a living church and report to the resident reverend, pastor or priest.

Prayer Points:

  1. Battles from the pit of hell targeting my soul, be wasted in Jesus' name

  2. I shall not be wounded in the battles of life in Jesus' name

  3. Arise oh Lord let my enemy be scattered in Jesus' name.

  4. I frustrate the agenda of the enemy against my household in Jesus' name.
