I've been thinking about my Psalm 27 study, and I've had plenty of opportunities in the last week to put what David learned into practice in my own life. I've got an enemy...sometimes it's Satan, sometimes it's fear, sometimes it's a person, and sometimes it's just my own flesh. Whatever the case, the spiritual victories only come when I choose to set my mind on the Lord - allow Him to hide me in His pavilion and the secret place of His tabernacle. No foe can grab me there. The moment I choose to live in the spirit by setting my mind on the reality of the presence of God, I triumph over the enemy. Physically, I may be bruised, hurt, persecuted, even killed - but spiritually God holds my soul in the grip of His hand.
Oh, how I want to live there... all day, every day.
