Many people are afraid of the night. For some it is a fear of physical harm. For others it is a fear of being alone. For others it is a not a fear of the night itself, but of what waits for them the next day.
What I love about this picture is the light that penetrates the evening sky. It is a reminder that light shines in the darkness.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1 English Standard Version
King David penned these words when he was facing serious adversaries, people who might kill him, yet he put his trust in God. For David God was the light in the darkness.
Jesus is the light in the darkness of your life. Your darkness might resemble the depth of winter in Alaska, yet Jesus can be trusted to be your light having himself experienced the depth of darkness, of hell itself, on his cross.
Of whom shall you be afraid?
