So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light.
Psalms 56:13 (NLT)
How often do we think of light as being life-giving? It is when all there is, is darkness. Without the light, we would be in peril. Without light, how would we avoid pending danger? The trouble comes when we get used to the darkness. We feel that what little light there is, is enough. But how distorted it is. There is no color, no definition, no beauty. Shapes are often obscure, and we can end up hurting ourselves. But the word “light” in today’s verse is only a metaphor. It is walking in the presence of God that the Psalmist is writing about. It is being conscious of God and letting Him lead us in everything we do that guides, sustains, and protects us. His light is life-giving. Today we have a choice. We can choose where we want to walk. Will we walk in the darkness, or will we choose the light?
Father, help me today to live in awareness of Your presence. Help me to walk in your life-giving light.
