“To secure one’s freedom the Christian must experience God’s light which is God’s truth.” Watchman Nee
Scripture: 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?”
Psalm 27 has long been one of my favorite Psalms to pray. I have clung to the truth in verse 1 so many times in my own life. THE LORD is my salvation, He is my light…why do I need to worry about what others think of me? In Christ I have all that I need. Period. End of discussion.
Oh, but it’s not the end, is it? Not until I see my Savior face to face someday will I cease to have the flesh and sin nature creep into my thoughts. You see, from time to time, I do need the reminder that The Lord is my light and my salvation. I do need the reminder that He alone is my strength and I do not have to fear anything or anyone. What fears do you need to give over to the Lord today?
You, God, are my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? You are the strength of my life, thank You that I do not have to depend on my own strength, because we know where I would be if that were the case. Thank You that I do not have to live in fear of what man can do to me or say of me because I am Yours. You are my salvation, You have given me my purpose, my calling, my identity and what the world and the enemy say about me are all lies. God, I desperately need You to help me cling to the truth of this verse, remind me, moment by moment that You are my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?
