This is a book of meditations on Psalm 27. Tripp encourages us to trust God in and through times of trouble and to remember that He is faithful and that He will hold us up. Our circumstances do not determine our relationship to God.
I found the reminders in this book helpful and I appreciated the "Take a moment" questions at the end of each reading.

I am a big fan of Tripp's. He has been a good mentor to me through his books. This book is a series of meditations on Psalm 27. I read it first as a devotional and second with my small group. I found it rich and deep and simple. Each meditation was both uplifting and thought provoking. It was good conversation starter for our group as well.

This is a great book on Psalm 27. Each of the chapters are only three (or so) pages each, reflecting on a different theme brought up throughout the Psalm. The theology is solid and Tripp is also a very gifted counselor and able to get to the “heart” of the passage (and the “heart” of the reader) really well.

This book provides 52 meditations based on Psalm 27. Paul Tripp shares many valuable insights in this book which helped me to set my mind on the Lord. I used this as a nightly devotional over the course of several months and benefited greatly from it.

A great set of devotions on Psalm 27. Tripp's mixture of poetry and prose is beautiful, comforting, wise and encouraging. Highly recommended for those in a season of difficulty.

There are a few thoughtful meditations within, but I think that Whiter Than Snow was far more focused and powerful. Good content, but I am still not much of a 'devotionals' guy.

Fantastic Book! It really made things click, and showed me that God is in control and we have a choice in our attitude towards the things God allows in our lives!
