“You are my lamp, O Lord;
The Lord illumines my darkness.”
2 Samuel 22:29 NASB

The beautiful verse above comes from the song of praise King David spoke to God. God had saved David from the murderous grasp of King Saul.

David rejoiced because the Lord, our Lord, is superior to all. Even when waves of death are surrounding us, He is able to draw us out of many waters.

In this chapter, David states that God “rides on the wings of the wind.” Even in darkness and we cannot see our way out, God makes a path for us.

We can’t see where the path is leading but we do know the One who is our lamp and illumines our darkness.

The Lord gives beauty even in darkness. He keeps our feet from slipping and brings us to a broad place.

Because of Jesus.
