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!

God used rest to show my stubborn heart that He’s in charge and the one doing the heavy lifting in my life, not me. And more than that, He made me realize that I should be GRATEFUL to serve a God who requires me to rest. I mean, what boss has EVER told you to intentionally rest once a week so you can bring them glory?

Could choosing to trade our fear and anxiety for His peace really be as simple as remembering who He is? It truly is.

On October 17th of Jesus Calling, Sarah Young tells us “Anxiety is a result of envisioning the future without Me.” Could choosing to trade our fear and anxiety for His peace really be as simple as remembering who He is? It truly is. There is grace for our flesh, for our fear, but our God is never leaving us. He is walking right alongside you today in whatever it is you’re facing. Know you’re not alone and no matter your outcome or next step, He is right by your side.God, you promise us your p...

Godly Women Aren't Perfect
Godly Women Aren't Perfect

October 30, 2019

We become so consumed with the “what ifs” and risk of failure that we forget our God is waiting on us. He is waiting for us to run to Him, to confide in Him, to surrender to Him. When we become consumed with our fears of making the wrong move, we find ourselves not moving at all. Remember this: Godly women aren’t perfect. Godly women walk alongside Him in every decision they make knowing at some point they may stumble and their flesh will fail but He is by our side forever. Think about one ar...
