Jesus is the light in the land of the living
One of the verses that kept me going during the most difficult times of my life was the following: Psalm 27:13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. That phrase "land of the living" kept me going for it gave me hope that even in this life God is good to us.
Then this morning I rejoiced as I read the following verse which came as a vivid reminder.
Psalm 56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
Jesus is the Light of the living, in the land of the living.
Using the red letter style, watch what Jesus said about himself in John 12:46
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
Are you walking in the Light of the living, in the land of the living, today?
For suffering fellow believers, I say:
Take courage my friend, for Jesus is the hope in the land of the living, today and every day.
