  Study Tools

FEAR

OBSERVATION:

THE BOOK OF PSALMS IS A COLLECTION OF ONE HUNDRED FIFTY POEMS PINNED BY VARIOUS AUTHORS THROUGHOUT ISRAEL’S HISTORY. KING DAVID WROTE HALF OF THE PSALMS: VARIOUS AUTHORS PINNED THE REMAINDER. EXPRESSIONS OF MANY HUMAN EMOTIONS RUNS THROUGHOUT THE PSALMS.

INTERPRETATION:

PSALMS 27:1-2 (NKJV) THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION; WHOM SHALL I FEAR? THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH OF MY LIFE; OF WHOM SHALL I BE AFRAID? WHEN THE WICKED CAME AGAINST ME TO EAT UP MY FLESH, MY ENEMIES AND FOES, THEY STUMBLED AND FELL. (AMPLIFIED BIBLE) THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION-SO WHY SHOULD I BE AFRAID? THE LORD PROTECTS ME FROM DANGER-SO WHY SHOULD I TREMBLE. WHEN EVIL PEOPLE COME TO DESTROY ME, WHEN MY ENEMIES AND FOES ATTACK ME, THEY WILL STUMBLE AND FALL.

POINTS TO PONDER:

LIGHT INDICATES DELIVERANCE FROM DARKNESS (GENESIS 1:2) A BIBLICAL SYMBOL OF EVIL. THE WORD SALVATION COMBINED WITH THE WORD LIGHT MEANS “SAVING LIGHT”. TO EAT UP MY FLESH PICTURES DAVID’S ENEMIES AS RAVENOUS BEASTS WHO WOULD SHRED HIS FLESH.

DAVID DID NOT CLOSE HIS EYES TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND HIM. HE LOOKED BY FAITH TO THE LORD AND EXAMINED HIS CIRCUMSTANCES FROM HEAVEN’S POINT OF VIEW.

THE WEIGHT OF TOMORROW CAN BURDEN YOU IF YOU ALLOW IT. REALISTICALLY, MANY BELIEVERS NEVER SEE TOMORROW BECAUSE OF DEATH. THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU HAVE A HEAVENLY HOME WITHOUT TOMORROW’S BURDENS. THIS IS WHY YOU VIEW LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME.

APPLICATION:

ANXIETY IS DANGEROUS. IT SEIZES THE HEART, PRODUCING SIN AND MISERY. LOOK AT KING DAVID’S COMMENTS TOWARD HIS ENEMY. HE RELIED ON THE LORD FOR PROTECTION. YOU, BELIEVER MUST ALSO!
