Knowing God Is FOR You | Psalm 118
The New Testament quotes Psalm 118:6-7 in a way that hits all of us where we feel it most. Fear and insecurity in uncertain circumstances. The key takeaway from these verses is to truly know and live like you know that God is always FOR you. Let’s talk about why in this episode.
Psalm 118:6–7 ESV
6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
7 The LORD is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
Psalm 118:17 ESV
I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the LORD.
1 Corinthians 5:7 NIV
For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
Psalm 56:3–4, 9-11 NIV
3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise — in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
9 By this I will know that God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise —
11 in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me?
Psalm 18:16–19 NIV
16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support.
19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.
Psalm 27:1, 13-14 NIV
1 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?
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.
Hebrews 13:5–6 NIV
God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
Romans 8:31–32 NIV
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
