Meditations from Psalm 27, verse one.
Light, Salvation, and Strength
“The LORD is my light…”
I have always been scared of the dark. “Lord, help me remember, You are my light no matter how dark it is – physically or in life in general."
“And my salvation”
For now and eternity.
“Whom shall I fear?”
As long as I am walking carefully with my Lord, I do not need to be afraid of anybody.
“The LORD is the strength of my life;”
Strength – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. God will give me as much strength as I need.
“Of whom shall I be afraid?”
Strength to do the smallest task or strength to meet the most formidable foe. If God only gives a little strength today, I do not need to borrow strength for what seems like it will be a bigger task tomorrow. God has given sufficient strength for today and He will give enough for tomorrow when it comes. I do not have to be afraid of tomorrow or of who may be in my tomorrow because God is already there.
