Psalm 27:3 (CEV) Armies may surround me, but I won’t be afraid; war may break out, but I will trust you.

It may seem like hell is breaking loose everywhere in your life. It’s during these times, we must learn from David. David’s trust was not in what He naturally saw around him. His trust was in the Lord. By spending time with the Lord and developing intimacy with Him, David was confident in knowing God was NOT going to let the enemy take him out.

When sickness attempts to invade our bodies, when divorce is on the horizon, or when stress infiltrates multiple areas of our lives, that’s when we need to look to the Lord and His word. His word says we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). We’re privileged to have prosperity in every area of our lives, including our marriage (3 John 1:2). We get the honor to give our cares to God so that He can perfect them for our good (1 Pet. 5:7; Ps. 138:8; Rom. 8:28).

Knowing and being confident in His word allows us to not be moved when circumstances don’t look the best. Trust God and His word.
