3 things the Lord is to me with regards to this verse of the Bible are:
- He is my light
- my salvation, He is
- He is the strength of my life.
Why the Lord?
This is all so that I should not be afraid; not for me to worship Him nor serve Him but simply for me not to be afraid.
Afraid of who?
The wicked, my enemies, my foes, host and war.
Then I begin to think about what relationship does this category of folks have with what the Lord is to me.
These folks especially the wicked and my enemies, they don’t like the light. They prefer darkness- but my advantage is that the Lord is my light and they can’t turn it off.
The illumination of the World
The Lord is my light; therefore, I am the light of the world. I began walking in this reality far back 2005 and since then my brilliance has never been turned off. The Psalmist wrote in Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
Therefore, when I have the illumination in these places: my feet and my path, then walking in darkness will be impossible. My path is flooded with revelation.
Light and Proximity
The closer the light, the brighter it will be or the stronger will be the effect. When you consciously have the Lord close then the effect of the light is stronger around you.
A lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path; then how can I walk in darkness? It is not done.
When it is dark around you several things are likely to happen like:
- You will lose things and you can’t find them.
- You will be slow because you will be groping in the dark.
- You will be afraid of the unknown.
- You will fall asleep easily and that’s not too good for some one who needs to be vigilant.
The farther the Lord is from you, the darker it is around you. Who would want such an environment?
But when your path is flooded with light, then you can walk with confidence. Light produces confidence and deep revelations.
What Jesus said about me
When Jesus then says that I am the light of the world then that means that I am whatever the light is to the world. When I move into my full potential, the world around me shouldn’t loose things so much that they can’t find them again.
Deep and great inventions ought to spring up when I am teaching or coaching. With my presence, I should provoke creativity and not recycling of old ideas. New ideas should spring out from my students as a teacher.
in conclusion, With light, I stand to embrace the future with both hands because I am not afraid of the unknown. Nothing will catch me unaware because I will know as I am known of God.
As we take the first steps of this new decade let us know fully that the Lord is our light and our salvation therefore our light can never be turned off.
This is going to be your best year ever!
God bless you!
I hope I have been able to brighten your evening.
If you want to have the Lord as your light and salvation please say this prayer with me: Lord thank you for this opportunity, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that you have died for my sins on the cross and God has raised you from the dead. I confess with my mouth that you are now my Lord.
If you have just made this confession then you are saved and born again. Do reach out to me and I will let you know further the next step to take.
