The Lord is My Light

The Lord is My Light
Psalm 27:1
By Laura McDonald


Psalm 27:1 “ The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

I love how this scripture depicts Jesus as a light and salvation. Sometimes we can feel that we are in the dark. Maybe you are not sure what career path to choose, who to marry, where to live, or even what to do in a difficult situation. When we take things to the Lord He shines His light and all of a sudden we see the answer that we could not see before.

Once we see what the Lord wants us to do we can depend on him as our salvation. When we do that we won’t fear the enemy, circumstances, or anything that tries to stand in our way. Because we will know that He and He alone is the strength of our life.

When we simply believe God there is never a reason to be afraid. He is always with us and has promised to take care of us. We can rely on Him in any situation that we face. He is the Lord and He will never let go of us.
