You, Lord, have been and still are my light that guides me through the darkness. You have been and are my salvation—saving me from physical danger and from spiritual annihilation…from Satan’s schemes and clutches. Because this is so, whom shall I fear? The leftist guerrillas in Colombia, South America? You rescued me from their evil scheme and saved me from their destructive bombing in 1976.
Of whom shall I be afraid? The Soviet KGB? You prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemies and I enjoyed several delicious meals with the shrewd agent. In the end, I handed him your Word—the Word of God.
How about the Sunni insurgents? Yes, I went to battle in the Middle East four times and came back each time unscathed…despite being on the front lines with the Marines during the Gulf War, residing in Camp “Bombaconda” for a year, and flying around the country of Iraq day and night, making high-risk deliveries to our team. The fact is, you even provided me the information that led to the capture of Saddam Hussein himself.
Because you are the Lord my God—the stronghold of my life…I need not be afraid of anyone. I just need to be still and know that you are God.
