The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1, NKJV
Celebrities and politicians sometimes employ a professional security detail since the nature of their work exposes them to crowds of strangers in public places. Their bodyguards watch over them to reduce the risk of danger while they travel and interact with others.
David’s victory over Goliath earned him such fame at an early age that songs were written about his exploits. King Saul was battling mental instability and felt threatened by David’s enormous success. Despite their close relationship, David’s life was in danger. While Saul had companies of men at his disposal, where would David turn for protection?
David turned to the Lord, just as he had in his battle with Goliath. The Lord was his light, his salvation, and the strength of his life. When you need protection, call upon the Lord.
