For you are my lamp, O LORD, and my God lightens my darkness… 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. “For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless.” —II Samuel 22:29, 31-33

Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. —Psalm 73:25

            Who is there other than our Lord God Almighty?  He is “my lamp, my light, my way, my perfection, my word, my shield, my refuge, my God, my Lord, rock and my blamelessness.  Without Him what hope do I have.  Who else is there that can light my way?  Who else is there that I can trust their word fully and 100% of the time?  Who else can I take refuge in now and forever?  Who else is there that is my firm and immovable foundation?  Who else is there that is blameless and makes me blameless?

            Fellow followers of Jesus, brothers and sisters, let us rejoice in that He revealed Himself to us and now we know He is all this and so much more!  We have our life enlightened by Him.  We can learn from Him continually.  Not only can we follow His perfect way, but He also makes us perfect in Jesus.  We are protected by Him and nothing can happen to us unless He allows it for His purposes.  We stand firm on Him and He cannot be moved!  Truly, who do I have in heaven but You.  There is nothing nor anyone I desire more than You.  How blessed I am in You! And I thank You, Dear Father, for all that I am in You and I am grateful for all that You do for me.  Out of gratitude and love for You, may I serve You faithfully however You desire by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son and my Lord Jesus.  Yes, so may this be!
