Keep My Life On

Psalm 18:4-28

“You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.”

Psalms 18:28-29 NIVUK

Every night we leave one outside light burning from our home- its a signal to all who pass by that there is life and people inside the house. For friends that is a welcome sight and for thieves that is a warning.

 Light, in the Hebrew culture and language, is an emblem of prosperity, happiness, favour, safety, comfort, joy success and life itself. 

As believers we understand that Life and everything we enjoy comes from God and that’s just the beginning. For God maintains all life and what gives us life, what a relief to know that! 

Light changes all life, observe the sun.

Light is life. 

Light exposes darkness, light brightens the mind, encourages justice, warms up hearts that are stone cold… GOD is light, our light. 

And so he is, and he continues to be light and life to us through our lives. Whatever darkness we might be in, his light, the truth-it is freedom to us. Because the light of the world is in us we can be courageous and loving, patient and joyful, generous and happy. He keeps our life on! 

Thank you Lord.
