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?

What do you do when trouble comes? Who do you turn to when everyone is against you? Another psalm says: "Some trust in chariots, others trust in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord, our God" (Psalm 20:7). God always defends those who are His own. He is their light when it is seems to be dark around and does not let the feet stumble; His name is a strong tower where the righteous run and are saved. When one chooses to hide in His presence, there is nothing to fear, because the fight is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities of this darkness. And He pierced the darkness with His light. He who said "Let there be light" made light in our hearts and made us light. HE is our strength and shield, our defender and our leader into battle. Therefore, he who trusts in the Lord can say: "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" (Psalm 27:4). That's where our safety is-- in His presence.
