Safety in Christ

The Lord is my light and my salvation; 
whom shall I fear? 
The Lord is the strength of my life; 
of whom shall I be afraid?
Though an host should encamp against me, 
my heart shall not fear:
though war should rise against me,
in this will I be confident.

One thing have I desired of the LORD, 
that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life, 
to behold the beauty of the LORD, 
and to inquire in his temple.

PSALMS 27:1, 3-4

GOD is my strong salvation,
What foe have I to fear?
In darkness and temptation,
My light, my help, is near.
Though hosts encamp around me,
Firm to the fight I stand,
What terror can confound me
With God at my right hand?

James Montgomery



  1. Jo,

    This lovely verse reminds me of another one:

    "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:6)

    I remember saying this verse over and over to myself several years ago when I had to get my first root canal and I was quite scared. It worked though, for the Lord helped me to be calm and gave me peace.
