The Lord is Our Light in the Darkness

The Lord is my light and my salvation - Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalm 27:1

 

Is fear consuming you today the way it is me? In case you need a reminder like I did this morning, God is stronger than any storm you’re going through. When fear consumes us and life overwhelms us, we have to make the conscious decision to meditate on God’s character instead of our circumstances.

Let’s break down the verse above together:

The Lord is our Light: He’s our guidance in the dark and is the radiance that brings warmth and comfort.

The Lord is our Salvation: He’s our source of deliverance and has already rescued us from death through His Son, Jesus Christ.

The Lord is our Stronghold: He is the concrete pillar that we put our hope in. He’s immovable and is the foundational cornerstone of our faith.

 

God is our guide, our Savior, and the rock of our lives. He’s holding us even when we feel like we're in free fall, just waiting for us to recognize His presence and relax in His arms.

 

Friend, let’s believe this together today: Our confidence in who God is gives us the right to be COURAGEOUS in spite of our fears!

 

Challenge: write out a list of your current fears. Got them? Now underneath in big bold letters, write the truth. The Lord is our light, salvation, and stronghold! There’s nothing to fear!

James 4:2 tells us “you have not because you ask not”. No wonder we feel like we are exhausting our resources to solve our own problems and insecurities – we don’t always feel like we’re allowed to ask for help! How foolish this feels when we are able to truly wrap our mind around the fact that we have a God that hears the cries of our hearts. He listens when we present our requests and uncertainties to Him and He meets us there. This friend is why we can wait for the Lord with hopeful expect...

Are we contributing to the noise or a part of the solution?

I just jumped off a video call with one of my dearest friends, Jantzen, a few hours ago. We both spoke of our craving to step into grief and hardship with friends and our temptation to believe in the lie that avoidance will eliminate the chance of misstepping, saying the wrong thing, and being misunderstood. Putting it simply, we find it easy to stay away when we see friends walking through the unknown because of our selfish fear of saying or doing the wrong thing in our effort to love. Does ...

Worship in our wait
Worship in our wait

Worship through your wait. Do NOT allow the enemy to steal your song of praise. Thank God in advance for hearing and responding to you. Trust God deeper and ask him what you are supposed to learn through your process. Remember, your story will be different from the next person, so try to avoid comparison. Trust that God is cultivating something greater in and through you while you wait diligently on his response.
