Psalm 27:1 Of David. “The LORD is my light and my salvation—“
[You, Lord Jesus, are the light Giver, the Sonshine of life, the Illuminator of our path, the Shinning on us. You show us the way, you reveal dangerous sins and snares so we can avoid them, you give insight and understanding, you help us to make the right choices.
Because of you, “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining on ever more brightly till the full light of day” (Prov. 4:18). We no longer have to live in “the way of the wicked which is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble” (Prov. 4:19).
You have rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of Light where you protect us from the devil, from death, and danger and difficulties.
You are actively working every moment to counter the attacks of the enemy, to shield us from his deceptions and help us stand against temptation. You also protect us from ourselves, from our old and evil nature.
Praise be to you that no attack, no opposition, no enemy is too fast, too great or too strong for you: you can counter all that comes, protecting and providing, keeping out what will harm while allowing in the things that make us effective. In your light we are safe.]
Help us, Lord, to dwell in the light, to turn away from darkness and live in the brightness of your love, wisdom and goodness.
