David tells us that God is his “light”, his “salvation” and his “strength.” There is a tremendous blessing in these three titles attributed to our God:
Are you fighting some battles today? Of course you are! But, in the midst of your battles, do you have hope? Do you have the deep settled confidence that everything is going to be alright? The above three characteristics of God serve to give us hope even in the midst of battles! Because of Who our God is, we need not fear any enemy that should arise against us. If God is for us, He is more than that whole world against us. Satan himself is definitely no match for our sovereign God!
The God we serve is unfailing, and unchangeable! Think of all the things He has done; the victories He has won; the enemies He has vanquished; the mountains He has moved; the challenges He has allowed us to overcome, and the tragedies that He turned into triumphs. Think on these things and remember that the God who performed countless wonders in the past is still that same God today, our Light, our Salvation, and our Strength!
