Psalm 27:7-10 (NLT)
7 Hear me as I pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! 8 My heart has heard you say, �Come and talk with me.� And my heart responds, �Lord, I am coming.� 9 Do not turn your back on me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don�t leave me now; don�t abandon me, O God of my salvation! 10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.

This is a psalm of David. David has just expressed to the Lord how he wished he could dwell in the Lord�s house and remain safe from his enemies. There with shouts of joy he would sing to and praise the Lord. David knows God is the foundation of salvation from sin. So David asks if he cannot be there present with the Lord then hopefully the Lord would respond to him in prayer. David said he knows God longs to be with him because he has heard God say in his heart, �Come and talk with me.�

We all want our lives to be safe and secure. However there are times when that security seems out of reach or the security we are looking for seems to hide in darkness. David felt this way often when he was sought out by opposing enemies. It helps us to understand why David took such delight in the Lord; for the Lord was his strength; the Lord was his fortress; the Lord protected him as a parent even if his parents would have abandoned him. So David longed to be with the Lord. I believe the Lord calls to all of us just as he did to David, �Come and talk with me.� Have you spend time talking with the Lord? If you haven�t talked to God lately take some time to talk about your fears and then listen as the Lord speaks back to your heart.
