Light Reflection-Psalm 31:16 and 17a

January 9th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Psalm 31:16 and 17a.

This is a prayer from the heart of David: “Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love. Let me not be put to shame, LORD, for I have cried out to you.”

David certainly had his enemies. They were strong and intimidating. But in his time of need David turned to the LORD for His favor. We have that same opportunity in our times of crisis. The whole world could be against us, and yet, we could still live with hope if we knew that God is with us.

To have God’s face shining on us is to have God’s favor-to be in a secure relationship that reflects God’s glory with a radiant faith.

This Light Reflection inspires us to humbly seek God’s favor in the Year to Shine.
