A Life With God in 2022 from Psalm 27

A Bold

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?
When the wicked advance against me
       to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
       who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
       my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
       even then I will be confident.

A Profound — What is your one thing?

One thing I ask from the Lord,
       this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
       all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
       and to seek him in his temple.


For in the day of trouble
       he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
       and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
       above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
       I will sing and make music to the Lord.

A Heart for “

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
       be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
       Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
       do not turn your servant away in anger;
       you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
       God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
       the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
       lead me in a straight path
       because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
       for false witnesses rise up against me,
       spouting malicious accusations.

A Living

13 I remain confident of this:
       I will see the goodness of the Lord
       in the land of the living.

An expectancy of Immanuel,

14 Wait for the Lord;
       be strong and take heart
       and wait for the Lord.
