Where Is Your Light? (II Samuel 22-23; Psalm 57)

For you are my lamp, O Lord,
    and my God lightens my darkness. II Samuel 22:29

Brothers and sisters, how can we possibly begin this day apart from praise to our God who has not only brought us into the light, but has lead us in the light. Join me in an exercise of personal praise this morning. We praise the Lord for:

  • being the Great King of our salvation.
  • every victory He has won in our lives.
  • everything good in our lives.
  • being holy and just in all of His deeds.
  • equipping us for battle.
  • for giving us the Spirit of Life and the Spirit of truth.

Brothers and sisters, this was just a taste of what we realize when we are in God’s light. Take a moment and make your own personal praise list this morning!

May I ask, how did it go? May I also ask, are you in the light this morning?

One of the ways I find myself more in the light is by lingering in the Word of God. David’s praise in II Samuel 22 will lead you and I to deeper praise and death defying victory in the trials we are presently facing.

Because of David’s praise and because of David’s honoring of God, the light shinned through his life. Did you notice it in chapter 23? Here is David’s praise to God:

The God of Israel has spoken;
    the Rock of Israel has said to me:
When one rules justly over men,
    ruling in the fear of God,
he dawns on them like the morning light,
    like the sun shining forth on a cloudless morning,
    like rain that makes grass to sprout from the earth.

If you desire to enlighten, strengthen, and equip others you must get in the light and reside in the light of God.

Here is an important footnote: The Devil wants to keep you from the light through worry, busyness, and what if’s. Yours is the task of simply placing yourself in the light. He will do the rest.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the lightas he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
