But sometimes I’m afraid anyway.
Though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident. Psalm 27:3

When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.” Psalm 27:8
There’s the problem. I seek my own solutions. I seek validation. I seek reinforcement. I seek escape. Instead of seeking You.
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Psalm 27:14
But when I seek, when I wait … that’s when He gives courage, confidence and strength.
