Pastor Lacey continues his devotional explorations through Psalm 27; here he highlights vv. 11 and 12, with the passage centered around “Teach me Your ways, O Lord.”
King David cried aloud to the Lord amidst his terrible trials, desiring the comfort and joy of God’s sustaining and delivering Presence – We should do the same!
God will protect us before anyone or anything that comes against us. He will lift us above the fray, elevating us over our adversaries and bringing us to a place in our hearts from where we will give God glory, especially through song!
God is always at His work, drawing us to Himself with an eminently reasonable proposition to sinful men and women, a proposition of saving power, a proposition that warrants an answer, one way or the other.
Christians have the great blessing of living in God’s Presence, taking stock through worship, reflection and witness of His great and exquisite beauty, and of seeking and growing in knowledge of Him.
God is our security and stronghold. He calls to us to come to, even run to, Him. He sees us through all manner of trauma and trial. He wants us to be strongholds for others, in whom His Spirit dwells.
It is easy to fall prey to a superficial, albeit regular and habituated observance to religious life, but God call us to a deeper and more meaningful life that is grounded in a living and redemptive encounter with Him, one which brings to life far more than merely religious observance, one that brings forth from religious observance our call to make the Gospel real through our attention to the needs of others.
