“The Lord is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear?”* declared David. David had a close relationship with God and He knew who God was very well. He knew that God was His light. He is a light that dissipates darkness. No darkness can win against God. No acts of the opposition and no acts of the enemy can win against David’s light. His light is more powerful than anything evil and it can show the way even where there seems to be no way. A light is hope, joy, peace and delight. David knew that His God was all that and more and He trusted Him all the time and in every situation. Friend, the Lord is your light and your salvation. Whom shall you fear? There is nothing to fear and no one to fear. Wherever you go, whatever you do, the Lord is your light and your salvation. You are going to be saved from any danger and you are going to make it through any circumstances.
The Lord is your light. Things can get very dark when problems pile up. Hope can take on a different shade and disappear before your very eyes. Difficulties come with a fair amount of gloom and doom and the light at the end of the tunnel is hard to see. However, it is in those dark moments that we need to remember that the Lord is our light and He is making every good thing shine when we turn to Him. You always have your light with you. Don’t hide Him under a bushel. I know it is hard to not put God into a small box and not forget about Him when things are dark. I have put the Lord in a box many times when things were not going well in my life. I took that box and put it away so to speak. I couldn’t look at God. I couldn’t call on God. I couldn’t think of God. The darkness was so intense that it clouded my vision and my judgment and the light of the Lord was out of sight. Jesus is better than a flashlight. He can change darkness into light in a flash better than anything and anyone.
If you are in the darkness now and hope is not in sight, turn on the light. Turn on the light of the Lord. All you have to do is tell Jesus that you are lost. Tell Him that you are in the dark and you can’t seem to see your way out. Tell Him that you are out of touch with hope and with joy and you need to be saved from your situation. You need to be taken out of the darkness and put back into the light. He will open the way for something better and something new. He will enlighten you and His love will shine all over you. One short prayer. One plea from the heart. One tear, one cry from the depth of your soul is all it takes. God hears what is deep inside of you even when you don’t have the words. He wants you to rely on Him and to see Him as the light and the salvation that He is. He is telling you today and every day that you have nothing to worry about and nothing to fear.
The Lord is your salvation. You are saved. You are blessed. You are going to get through this dark moment and come out victorious. You are going to find peace again and joy is coming back for sure. Your salvation guarantees it. Your salvation has secured it. You are saved. You are saved today and every day. Every day you are blessed. Every day the blood of Jesus covers you. Every day there is a way out of your problems and His name is Jesus, your salvation. Every day nothing is too hard for your salvation. Every day Jesus can do the impossible. Every day you are favored so next time the devil tries to intimidate you, remind him who your light and salvation is. You don’t have to live in fear. You don’t have to fear the enemy because Jesus is your salvation. Stand tall. Keep looking at your light. Hold on to your salvation. You have nothing to fear and nothing to worry about. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
