Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 29 - Morning

"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?...
...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."

- Psalms 27:1, 13-14

It is Necessary to be Strong and Bold While You Wait for the Lord    

Psalm 27 begins with a confident statement of faith when the writer, who apparently is the King of Israel, says the Lord is the light and way of deliverance (27:1). This psalm also ends with the king confident of seeing goodness in this life. (27:13). Yet, in the final verse (27:14) where he is told to wait for the Lord, he is also encouraged to “be strong” and to “be bold” because he will continue to experience situations (such as opposition from the enemy) that will require him to again wait on the Lord before he receives deliverance from the Lord. 

It appears that Psalm 27 is presented with these divisions:

  1. Confidence in the Lord (27:1-6) –The King of Israel’s confidence in the Lord during military conflicts is stated like this:
    1. 27:1 – The Lord is the king’s:
      1. Light against the darkness of the enemy
      2. Salvation, or military victory over the enemy
      3. Rock, or military stronghold of defense when the enemy attacks
    2. 27i:2 – A present confidence based on the king’s past experience of victory that had been provided during previous battles
    3. 27:3 - Anticipation of future victory in military combat
    4. 27:4-6, the king will remain in God’s presence and the Lord will continue to provide supernatural provisions which will be greeted with joyful victory music and sacrifices.
  2. The king prays to the Lord for grace (27:7-12) that he will need in the future since he again will cry for help in the time of military conflict.
    1. 27:8 – Before he engaged in past battles the king had sought the Lord and victory was provided. Now, before future battles he will again seek the Lord.
    2. 27:9 – The king offers a plea to the Lord not to become angry and turn away. In the past the Lord had been the king’s help. Now, the king asks the Lord not to forsake him in the future.
    3. 27:10-12 – Though natural man forsakes him, the king asks to be taught and empowered to walk in the Lord’s ways so that he would never fall in front of his military opponents.
  3. The king’s statement of confidence (27:13) of seeing the Lord’s deliverance.
  4. The king receives an oracle of instruction from a presiding priest who guarantees continued deliverance. But, the priest also adds to the oracle the following requirements necessary for the king to see this promised victory. It will be necessary for the king to:
    1. Wait for the Lord
    2. Be strong
    3. Be bold

It will be important for the king to continue to be strong and bold since he will still have times where he will have to “wait for the Lord.” Failure to “wait” would be a failure of faith. Strength and boldness while waiting for the Lord are the fruits of true faith.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God…What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”
- John Adams
Something to Ponder??
Most buildings were made of stone in ancient Israel, so a "carpenter" of Jesus' day would have been a stone mason who cut stone more than he cut wood.
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Torah (Hb) – Law (Eng) – torah is the Hebrew word that means “law,” “direction,” “instruction.” It is used like this in Proverbs 13:14 and Job 22:22. Torah refers to the instruction or the laws of the wisemen and teachers in Proverbs 28:7; 3:1; 4:2 and 7:2. Torah is used to refer to the instruction God gave Moses. Torah identifies the Law of Moses in Malachi 4:4 and the Mosaic Law in Deuteronomy 4:44. God gives torah both in Moses’ Law and in wisdom principles so we can know it, obey it and live it in Deuteronomy 4:8.


1 Kings 9:16 says, “Pharaoh king of Egypt had attacked and captured Gezer. He had set it on fire. He killed its Canaanite inhabitants and then gave it as a wedding gift to his daughter, Solomon’s wife.” Excavations in 1969 at Gezer uncovered a layer of ash with cultural artifacts from the Philistines (Canaanites), Egyptians and Hebrews.  This confirms the content of 1 Kings 9:16 that unites Egyptian, Canaanite and Hebrew cultures at the same time in the same destruction layer of burnt ash at Gezer.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I have confidence in my heart concerning the Lord? Do I believe the Lord is active in my life? I will seek the Lord’s ways and live in obedience since I know the Lord is watching and assisting me as I fulfill his purpose in my life.

  "If a wise person goes to
court with a fool,
    the fool rages and scoffs, and there is no peace."
