THE WORD FOR TODAY
2 Samuel 21-24
2 Samuel 21-24
2 Samuel 22:29 29 “For You are my lamp, O LORD; The LORD shall enlighten my darkness.”
Did you know they make flashlights in all different sizes, shapes and functions. I even have a flashlight application on my iPhone and it works really well. I saw a unique flashlight in a magazine the other day. It clipped on the brim of your cap and allowed a LOT of light to be guided exactly where you wanted.
We need light in our life. King David said, “YOU are my lamp O LORD, the LORD shall enlighten my darkness.” If anyone knew about darkness David did. It was in darkness that he hid in a cave when Saul was chasing him. It was darkness of the soul that consumed him in the aftermath of his affair with Bathsheba, the death of his son and his time of mourning. It was darkness at work when his son Absalom rose up in rebellion against him. David knew something about darkness.
We know something about darkness. We know enough to be in complete agreement with David, “You are my lamp, O LORD!” I pray that the LORD is your lamp that HE is lighting the path of Your life. I pray that the darkness of soul that attempts invade will be chased away by the light of the presence of the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” He is the LIGHT we need and there is no other. Surrender to the power of HIS brightness as it shines upon your life and you will never be disappointed.
Father, light up my life with Your power and presence. On darkest day shine on me. On brightest day shine even brighter so that I glow for YOU O Lord. You are my light and I praise YOUR name…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
