Look for the Light

You light a lamp for me. The LORD, my God, lights up my darkness. (Psalm 18:28 NLT)

There’s no denying that we’ve been living through some very dark times and are desperately yearning for the light. So did the psalmist in today’s passage. Read at length, Psalm 18 reveals one of David’s darkest moments. But he also found light at the end of the tunnel. He knew that there was no one else he could turn to than the Light. Several times in the psalm, we hear David crying out to God for deliverance and of being delivered. Instead of dwelling on his unfortunate circumstances, David chose to run to God who proved to be trustworthy. And isn’t that the only way to get through the darkness, by looking for the light? It’s been rightfully noted that “Darkness is the absence of light.” Maybe if we turned to God, we would see the light. Because nothing makes Him happier than to light up our darkness. He has kept a light on. Are you looking for it?

Jesus replied, “My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going. Put your trust in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light.”

(John 12:35-36)
