DAILY MEDITATION : ‘Thinking with You’

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 27:1 Before I knew the LORD, I was filled with fear. Fear of the unknown; fear of the future; fear of the dark places; fear of loneliness; fear of death and all other forms of fear gave me no peace. Since the LORD, in his mercies made himself known to me, my life became a new and different story of love, peace, joy and hope. The Psalmist testifies from his life experiences. He was exposed to rejection, oppression, attack, and rebellion. He knew what fear is, but he also knew and experienced the deliverance of the LORD, because he had learnt how to trust in the LORD. Therefore like David we, from a position of trust, can also testify. The LORD is my light, my salvation and the strength of my life. Darkness and the power thereof cannot make me afraid because I have the light of God in me and around me. Where light exists it is always dominant, and darkness is subdued. Light always shines in the dark and dispels any darkness around. This darkness is more than the physical darkness. Satan and his agents are of spiritual darkness. The wicked, mischievous, deceptive, oppressive, racist, violent, rapist, terrorist, arrogant, and all other immoral, people are of spiritual darkness. They cannot put me or you under or overcome us, because we trust the Lord, who is the defence, security, refuge and indeed the strength of our lives. I am not afraid of anyone. The LORD is with me with all of his power. These words are light and as we take them in, what great light is established in us!
