This is a song of a man, and a people, who have many reasons to fear. However, they have one great reason not to fear: their relationship with the LORD. The evildoers, adversaries, foes, armies, war, day of trouble, and false witnesses who breath out violence – all will come. Bring it on. God is my light in dark times, my salvation in dangerous times.
LORD, teach us to trust in you as we wait for your deliverance.
