“How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying His commands. . . . Light shines in the darkness for the godly… . . They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.”
Psalm 112:1, 4a, 8
What a wonderful promise right?! There is no fear for those who follow the Lord…. The reason is because we are following ONE who has already won our victory over evil, death and sin. We follow the ONE who shined His light in this dark world and overcame the darkness. Moreover, He poured out His light in us so that we too may show others the way to Himself.
Because of Jesus Christ, we have nothing to fear. We can approach our enemies, not just in confidence but triumphantly, because of the victory Jesus has already won for us. What a glorious promise. Doesn’t it just fill you with hope, knowing that when we obey God and follow Him, we are blessed with unspeakable favour. No place will be too dark for us to walk into because ‘light shines in the darkness for the godly’. No enemy or situation can fill us with fear because God makes us ‘confident and fearless’ so that we can face our foes and fears ‘triumphantly’. Praise the Lord…
