For you are my lamp, O LORD, and my God lightens my darkness. For by you I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God—his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him (2 Samuel 22:29-31). He is our light in the darkness a lamp unto our feet. He is our shield and our refuge who gives us the strength to run and win against the fiery darts hurled at us each day of our life. Let us take courage and strength in these words knowing that his ways are perfect and his word is true.
LORD, I come to you today with strength and courage because of your word. I come as your humble servant and child. You are my strength, may light in this dark world, and in this battle against sin, you are my shield of refuge that covers me from all the fiery darts that come at me each day of my life. Thank you for your word that is true and proves true. God help me to be the light that shines bright in this darkened and sinful age we live in. Help me to speak the words I need to give an answer to where my hope comes from. My hope is in you and you alone. My hope is in Jesus Christ. You are the I AM, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. May all that I do in action and prayer be a pleasing aroma and a sweet sound to your ears. It is in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
