No Sneak Attacks Permitted!
2015 Frieda P. Smith
While reading this Psalm this morning, initially, I could not get past the first five words, “The Lord is my light.”
In the context of this verse, the Hebrew word for light literally means, “luminary.” However, what captivated my attention was that the word “light” in the Psalm 27 was the same word used when there was total darkness, “And God said ‘Let there be light and there was light’.”(Genesis 1:3).
In other words, what David is saying to us is that the Lord can dispel total darkness around us, thus illuminating those areas where the enemy attempted to keep us “in the dark.”
Hence, the Lord will guard us against sneak attacks of the enemy!
People of God, many of us have been caught off guard and attacked because we were not paying attention when the Lord “turned on the lights.” Come on, get real, and get delivered! The Lord “turned on the lights” and we saw the behavioral issues and ignored them. We saw the underhanded dealings, overlooked them, and suffered a major attack by the enemy.
[For the record, as believers, we should know that we do not need to deal underhandedly in order to receive a blessing from the Lord! If the deal had to go down at midnight in the corner in the back in the booth under the table in the dark in secret, it was not of God! (“God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 1st John 1:5)]
This is a word of encouragement for someone on today. You need to know that the Lord is your light, and He will illuminate the work of the adversary in your home, in your ministry, in your marriage, on your job, around your children, and in your finances. The Lord will uncover that which the enemy has tried to keep hidden from you, and will reveal the work of the enemy through the spoken word, in a dream or vision, or the Lord will send a messenger to give you an advance warning.
When the Lord “turns on the lights” take note of what He reveals. There is a reason God wants you to see what He is showing you. He wants you to be aware of the plans of the enemy so you can prepare yourself.
No sneak attacks permitted!
