Lord, lift up the light of your countenance upon us.   {Psalm4:6}   For you alone, O Lord, make us dwell in safety.  {Psalm 4:8}

There is a huge difference between darkness and light, and there really isn't any way to compare it to anything else. When you sit in the sun, you know it, even with your eyes closed! The darkness is the absence of light, and you certainly know that as well. When the goodness of God touches our lives, we see his face, His countenance, and we are changed. The Bible tells us that no one can see the Father unless the Holy Spirit first draws us. It all originates with His desire to love us, and make Himself known.

Trust in the Lord, with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.     {Proverbs 3:5-6}  Our safety only comes from Him! It is a glorious truth! Who, but our gracious Lord and Savior will shelter us under His wing. It doesn't always feel that way, but this is the Word of God. Our feelings lie to us, but the Word of the Lord stands forever. Don't be moved by this report, or that report, for the Lord Our God endures forever.
