Psalm 27

February 9, 2019

There was a season awhile back when I felt like I was being surrounded by attacks. I was being slandered, I had a situation against me that could have potentially left me and my husband in a scary and harmful place, and I was terrified. I had to confront someone and I was TERRIFIED. I mean the trembling, can't eat or sleep kind of terror.

 

Normally in that situation I would ask a handful of people pray for me, and I would fret (a lot) and probably lay on the floor with worship music and just sob like a baby (instead of worshiping).

 

But this time, I chose to first remember that I am a DAUGHTER of a God that is much bigger than my terror, bigger than these "enemies" and certainly bigger than this situation.  Once I reminded myself of this, I began to fight - and Psalm 27 was my sword!

 

I prayed these particular versus aloud until I barely had a voice left. I declared them out loud for about 24 hours whenever I would start to feel the terror again. I'd walk around and say these scriptures over and over to myself until I had them memorized. I printed them out and put them on walls around the house where I could see them.  Every time I prayed them, the trembling stopped, the terror stopped and an unexplained peace flooded me. And suddenly I just knew (that I KNEW without a doubt) that God had it all.

 

And you know what? The confrontation occurred and I was so full of holy, Godly confidence that I surprised even myself.  And the entire situation CHANGED.  It actually DRASTICALLY changed, to the point of becoming a blessing to both myself and those who were against me.

 

But God.

 

And here's the thing that I learned about using scripture that way. The word is a sword - but I felt more like I was using it to DIG OUT the lies that had been lodged in my mind, more than as a defensive tool.

 

 

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. - Hebrews 4:12

 

He's so clever.  I'm so grateful for scripture to fight with!

 

 

Much Love,
