In Your Light  We See Light

Sometimes when people  are stumbling around  in their darkness  —  in their sins  —  they think they are doing  just fine.     Psalm 36 describes  how they’re not  one bit afraid  of God’s judgment.     They’re so proud  of themselves  and flattered  over other people’s hatred  of their evil deeds  that they even plan more wickedness  when they’ve gone to bed.     They can hardly wait  to carry out  their devious plans  the next day.

Then Psalm 36  —  this very same psalm  —  goes on  to describe God  and His immense love.     God’s faithfulness,  righteousness,  and judgments  are greater than anything  we can imagine.     Even though  there is so much sin  in this world,  God faithfully keeps us all  —  and patiently waits  for the proper judgments  at the right time.

All  of God’s love and faithfulness  is a gift  of time  for everyone  to realize God’s  loving care  —  and a chance to realize  that God is  showing us all  the right way  to live  —  if we want  to live eternally.     So,  Psalm 36:7-9  says,

How precious  is Your lovingkindness,  O God!
And the children  of men  take refuge  in the shadow  of Your wings.
They drink their fill  of the abundance  of Your house;
And You give them  to drink  of the river  of Your delights.
For  with You  is the fountain  of life;
In Your light  we see light.

Because God’s love  is so “precious”,  we run  to Him  for “refuge”  in our every trouble.     He helps all  who turn  to Him,  so we all get relief.     God wondrously  keeps on offering  His love  to all…….

For with You  is the fountain  of life;
In Your light  we see light.

No matter  who we are,  we can turn  to God  in faith  and He will be  to us  “the fountain  of life”.     When we turn to God,  we turn away  from the darkness of our sins  to the “light”  of His truths.     So,  “in Your light  we see light”.     In God  we “see”  the way  of love,  righteousness,  and salvation  through faith  in Christ.

That is a wondrous joy,  so we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for giving us the light  of Your salvation.”

Love,
Margaret
