Psalm 43:3 – Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them lead me to your holy hill and to your dwelling!
The psalmist is praying to God for protection from ungodly enemies. He is distraught as if God is unaware of his situation. His prayer is for light, truth from God to shine in the darkness. He asks to follow the light of the illuminated path towards God!
We are living in a time in our culture where evil is being celebrated and goodness is being positioned as evil. This is the upside down secular worldview people are being led to believe. More than any period in my lifetime, we must draw near to God in word and prayer to be steadfast in our faith. The prayer from the psalmist is one that I will pray and know was answered in Jesus. Jesus is the light and in him is no darkness. Jesus is the only truth in a world full of lies on which I can stand.
Thank you for your love in sending Jesus to be the light of the world and save me. Let the power of the Holy Spirit guide me to the light and truth of Jesus. Guide me to share the gospel with boldness, love and truth to make you known.
