Psalm 27 Bible Study
1. Always confide your problems in God
David always seek God’s face and confide his problems to him. We must always confide in God and speak to God about our problems. If you seek God’s face, God will give you guidance and show you the way out of your problem. You must hold on to God’s promises and keep on praying until your problem is solved. In Numbers 23:19, God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?. In Psalm 118:8, it is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
In 2 Chronicles 32:8, with him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. In Psalm 108:12, give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. In Psalm 146:3-5, put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God.
