“The Lord is my…”. We commonly recite such scripture as the 23rd Psalm that begins with those very words. We also offer these words up in song declaring who God is and what He means to us personally.
So, I got a notion to conduct a search in the King James Version of the Holy Bible of that exact phrase to see what results it would turn up. I knew the Bible was full of such phrases and I thought it would be nice to have a list to refer to.
I found the results very interesting and highly encouraging! I will share them below in hopes that it has the same impact on you!
*Exodus 15:2 – “THE LORD IS MY strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.”
*2 Samuel 22:2 – “And he said, THE LORD IS MY rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;”
*Psalm 18:2 – “THE LORD IS MY rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”
*Psalm 23:1 – “THE LORD IS MY shepherd; I shall not want.”
*Psalm 27:1 – “THE LORD IS MY light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

*Hebrews 13:6 – “So that we may boldly say, THE LORD IS MY helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
(All emphasis mine)
I conducted this search online at kingjamesbibleonline.org for easy reference and then looked up each verse one by one in my own personal Bible.
May it richly bless you!
