God’s Lamp


ancient oil lamp

My good blogging friend, Sue Nash, inspired today’s post.

I love the Psalms. They are not only prayers; many of them are simple statements about our faith and our beliefs. Psalm 18:28 is one of those. 

Psalm 18:28

You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. 

When I think about what God has done for me, this verse sums it up. I was surrounded by darkness, but God has turned that darkness into light. Said another way, first I could see nothing, but thanks to God, I can see everything clearly!

Our lives are surrounded by a world that is colorful, fast, crazy, busy, and overly stimulating. It doesn’t seem dark, until we look for the truth. The overload on our senses attempts to blind us from all truth, sending us into darkness. The light God gives us is not of this world – it is of Him. Because our Lord lights our lamp we can see the world for what it is. By His lamp we can also look to the beauty of our Creator and all that He offers us.

Walk In His Light,

Julie
