Light of His Presence


"Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord. They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation. They exult in your righteousness." – Psalm 89:15-16
"God is Light." - John 1:5
"The LORD is my Light." - Psalm 27:1

Every morning the sun rises, and we walk in its light and perform our daily duties. Whether we think about it or not, the light of the sun shines on us all day. Likewise, the light of God shines on His children every morning. But in order to enjoy the light of God’s presence, the soul must turn to God and trust Him to let His light shine in upon it.

Just as you need the light of the sun each day, so, too, is the heavenly light of the Father’s presence indispensable. If we expect the sun to rise each day and receive its light, we can also confidently count on God to let His light shine on us. Make sure that the light of God shines on you as you commune with Him in the morning. Then expect His light to remain with you all day long.

Remember, it is the longing of your heavenly Father that you should dwell and rejoice in His light. So, do not rest until you know that the light of His presence and His blessing is resting on you. Then you will experience the truth of the words of Psalm 89:15-16.

"The light of God surrounds us; The love of God enfolds us; The power of God protects us; The presence of God watches over us; Wherever we are, God is!" Amen. - James Dillet Freeman
