You are my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? (See Psalm 27:1a)
In God (I will praise his word), in God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? (Psalm 56:4)
LORD, you are the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (See Psalm 27:1b)
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for giving me hope.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, you are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, And your right hand shall hold me. If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from you, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to you. (Psalm 139:7-12)
Jesus, there is no darkness dark enough to hide me from your light. Help me each day to take each step by your light.
