The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? *
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?
As Christians we know that God is always present but do we know that God is always good? The Psalmist reminds us that in the midst of our fears God is our light, salvation and strength! God goes with us into all the dark and difficult times of our lives and he brings his light. When we are weak he is our strength. When we do not see a way forward He is our salvation! The presence of God in our lives is often the cause of great fear and rightly so! But our faith in God’s love and goodness is what drives out all the external fears. Today, take stock of your worries and fears and lay them before the Lord who loves you. Let Him be your light, salvation and strength of your life!
