      “THE LORD IS MY LIGHT”

      "A Psalm of David. 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?" Psalms 27:1

    Have you felt like you are in darkness lately? Has confusion plagued your thoughts? If so, have you been thinking that you are not in God's will? Did you realize that according to God's revelation to us (His Word), this condition is not necessarily an indication that you are outside the will of God? Think about when JESUS and His 12 were on a small ship heading across the sea and He told His disciples (that's what you are too) definitively that they were going to the other side:

      "Let us pass over unto the other side." Mark 4:35

    If Jesus said they were going “over to the other side”, we know they were going to make it, right? Do you think the Son of God, the Creator of ALL that is, made a mistake here by stating that they would definitely make it to the other side? Obviously not.

    Somebody who has read this Gospel story might be saying in their mind; "But wait a minute, there was a storm after they got to the middle of the sea! Why didn’t Jesus warn them? Didn't this mean

    Book-DFPS title

    Are You Being Deceived ?

    that God was not in this direction they were going and that they were out of His will?" NO! First of all, GOD was literally on the boat with them. Also, the storms that raged against them were actually proof that they were in the center of His will. Think about it: We live in a world where there is a fallen foe who has a third of the other rebellious fallen angels with him and these powers resist everything and everyone that represents the Almighty (Eph. 6:12).

    Also, the storms that raged against them were actually proof that they were in the center of His will and not proof that they weren’t.

      “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.” 1 Peter 4:12-14

    All who serve Christ in real faith and obedience will be met with storms of persecution, trials, tribulations, attacks, false accusations, and testings. In the midst of them all will be the Savior who will in His timing distill those winds and waves with “Peace, be still.” (Mk. 4:39) The Potter who molds His clay (us) as He wills, will roll back the tide of evil surrounding His child when He is ready. Up till that point, He will sustain His child in the midst of the storm. He has a purpose for the things we suffer.

      “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” 1 Peter 5:10

    Beloved, the purpose of the Master in your sufferings and trials is to “make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

    Did Jesus and his tepid disciples make it across that sea? Are you going to make it through what you are now enduring? Let's see:

      "And they came over unto the other side of the sea." Mark 5:1

    YAY Jesus!

    Note the phrase "they came over." Where God guides He provides (Ps 37:25; 1 Cor. 10:13). Saint, Your Savior; Light, and Redeemer is strong and mighty and will provide all the grace, protection, and provision you need to make it through whatever you are passing through in your life.

      Isaiah 43:1-5 "But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not..."

    Job continued to discover that God was his Provider and Protector in all things. This is why, after horrific destruction had come to his life, he could say:

    Job 5:19-22

    As the Lord teaches our hearts to trust in Him, no matter what we endure, we will be able as Job, to so confidently look past seemingly overwhelming odds and go through such testing learning to love and trust Him more and more.

      “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. He also shall be my salvation…” Job 13:15-16

      “The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.” Job 17:9

    Remember that when things seem to be dark and it seems that the LORD has forsaken you, because the waves of the sea are beating against your life, that in His perfect timing, He is going to arise in your midst with "Peace, be still" and all the torrential storms in your life will be neutralized. All winds and waves cease when the Master speaks, but until then, He is watching to see how we fare in the test. For now He is working something special in you, deepening your faith. Could He be forging His image in you as you continue to seek His face no matter what you face, no matter things look like or who is coming against you?

    All winds and waves cease when the Master speaks, but until then, He is watching to see how we fare in the test. For now He is working something special in you.

    In the very same text from Job 5, this truth is lodged:

      Job 5:17 "Behold, happy (are you?) is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:"

    We all go through times. There is the season of the dark hour of the soul:

      "Who is among you that feareth the LORD (that's you), that obeyeth the voice of his servant, (yet) that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God." Isaiah 50:10

    It's time to look up to the Light of the whole world - the Light of your world. God is not against you, but rather for you. And “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:31) Your help comes only from Him. This is a test and you are going to pass and be a much matured, strengthened, and settled person on the other side of the sea! Remember:

      "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?" Psalms 27:1

    David said that “The LORD is...my salvation” which means He is your deliverer. Not yourself but He is your Deliverer! In the darkness of these things we may endure in this short life, we should remember that the LORD Himself truly is our Light and Salvation and the Strength of our lives.

      “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18

    When the snares of sin come to enslave you, remember that He is your Strength and call upon Him from the depths of your being and He will deliver you. He delights to deliver and preserve His saints. When the enemy’s false accusations and persecutions find there way to your blessed life, remember that the LORD is your Vindicator, Salvation, and Deliverer. When darkness of any kind seems to surround and even engulf you, remember that the LORD is your Light. Call upon Him and He will deliver your soul from troubles. He loves you.

    Psalms 34

    1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

    2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

    3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

    4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

    5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

    6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

    7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

    8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

    9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

    10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

    11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

    12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?

    13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

    14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

    15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

    16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

    17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

    18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

    19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

    20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

    21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

    22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
