Summer in Psalms Interactive Bible Study – June 27

This Bible study in Psalms is intended to be interactive, as a stepping stone from reading God’s Word to journaling with Him. The Discover One Thing ministry focuses on use of the SOAP method of Bible Study (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) during our daily time at the feet of Jesus. To learn more, check out the “What’s SOAP?” tab above. Please read the Psalm below, let God speak to you through it, then post a response in the Comments section on our website’s home page. Your response could be any of the following related to the Psalm: scripture verse that stood out to you, observation, application, prayer, question, prayer request, or response to another’s comment. And check back to see where the conversation leads us! Together we can encourage one another and grow closer to God!

The Book of Psalms contains responses to God by individuals and the community in worship. We pray through this study that all of us will focus on the majesty of God and humble ourselves before Him in worship, no matter our circumstance.

Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. Verse 4 fills me with peace this morning; it stills me. As I seek Your face, I enter Your Kingdom here on earth, and I can meet there with You as well as my brothers and sisters in Christ–from the Lord’s prayer: “Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” I pray for Your kingdom here; I pray for growth, individual spiritual growth and physical Kingdom growth. Help me to work to max out Your kingdom to full capacity!


  2. Did you notice it starts out with One Thing? What a fun verse today!


  3. Verse 6 : He will raise up my head above my enemies all round me. I will give him gifts in his tent. I will sing and I will make music to the LORD.

    It’s easy to sing, praise and make music when I’m happy and things are going spectacular in my life. I want to do that everyday in Your presence Lord. You’ve assured me ample times (not that I ever get tired of coming across it), that You’ll never leave me nor forsake me. Please guide me and give me strength, on those days that seem to be gloomy doomy, so I, like You, never bail. Thank You for all the ups and all the downs.

    Lord, Your story is amazing. I want to sing, shout, jump and praise, so others can put their faith in You and enjoy the salvation You offer…all in hopes they will sing and make music in Your presence too. I can’t help, but trust and believe in Your great name. I love You

    – – Does anyone have anything they would like to give God praise for?


  4. I give God praise for Dyea! I didn’t notice vs. 4 started with “One thing”–perfect! Because this verse so very much matches up to the meaning of Luke 10:42 which is the verse behind the name of this ministry, it makes me wonder if the derivation is one of those Greek words not used often but used specifically in these two cases to mean the same thing. And maybe even Jesus’ use of “one thing” in Luke 10:41 was purposely referencing this psalm. Woah.
