The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; of whom shall I fear? The Lord is the Stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
Are you afraid of your boss, that he might fire you? Are you afraid of the doctor, that he might say you’re dying? Are you afraid of your spouse, that she might leave you? Are you afraid of terrorists, that they might cause you injury? Are you afraid of God, that he might tell you Jesus’ forgiveness isn’t for you?
Seriously, why are you afraid?
The rascal provoking our fears is uncertainty.
Well, how about a little certainty for your day. The Lord is your Light. He shines His goodness and mercy on your every circumstance. The Lord is your Salvation. He saves you from the world’s cruelty and welcomes you to heaven when it’s over. The Lord is your Stronghold. Nothing will overpower you.
Dear Jesus, be my light, my salvation, and my stronghold that I may fear not. Amen.
