Good morning friends!! I woke up thinking of Psalm 27:1 and wanted to share! It’s a beautiful Psalm of King David.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation”
What is the purpose of a light? To make it to where we can see…to see what we are looking for, to see what we need…I’m loving all of the definitions I’ve found too:
- the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible
- a source of illumination
- not dark
- a device that makes something start burning
These are beautiful when thinking of them in reference to God! Isn’t this just what He is and what He does?
When Saul, a Jesus hater who killed Christ followers, was on his way to Damascus, he literally saw light and saw the Light. He was blinded by this for 3 days and then, with the help of a friend sent by God, he regained his sight.
“Instantly something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he regained his sight…” Acts 9:18
After this, he was no longer Saul but Paul- Jesus lover. The scales were removed from His eyes and for the first time in His life he saw Jesus for who He truly is. He saw the Light. He saw the Lord. He saw and experienced Salvation. His life did a complete 180 and he was ignited, enlightened and he shined brightly for the Lord and the Lord only. He wrote the majority of the books in the New Testament and was amazing.
Now not everyone’s story is as extreme and radical as Paul’s, but if we are Believers, we were once blind and through Christ, our Light and our Salvation, we are able to see. Are we allowing Him to illuminate, enlighten and ignite us?
One thing I find interesting is that the use over time of the word light has remained constant…just as our God is constant. 🙂
