The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
The psalmist starts this song with total clarity on who God is and what it means for his life. God is both the light of salvation and the stronghold of his life. The result in his life? There is nothing to be afraid of anymore!
I wish it was just that easy. To know who God is and let that strip all fear from my life. But maybe it is? Maybe fear sets in my life when I forget who God is. A few things…
-Jesus has conquered death. Is there anything worse than death that I will face today? The answer is no. If Jesus has authority of the cross, then he has authority over everything I will face today.
-The King of the Universe is my Father. It truly doesn’t get any better than that. May I rest in that today.
-If something seems to be going wrong in my life, instead of freaking out, I will cry out to God and put my trust in Him.
I truly have nothing to fear Father. May I rest in you. May I rest in your authority!
