Psalm 18:28-29 (NIV)
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.
“He was, a few days before Christmas, airlifted to intensive care and we began to fight for Jackson’s life… and a couple weeks into the fight we got a text one night from Joel that they weren’t sure he was going to make it through the night. And as soon as I heard and read the message, it was like this giant of unbelief stood in front of me. And I just thought Jackson’s gonna die tonight, we’re not going to see the miracle. And as this giant stood in front of me, all of a sudden, out of my gut, this song started coming out right in the face of the giant – ‘I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies, I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief.’ ” [excerpt of Jonathan Helser’s sharing, Bethel Music]
Let’s consider that in our darkest moments, God breaks through with his light. In the face of a giant of unbelief, a giant of rebellion, a giant of pain, the Lord helps us to advance, to fight, to defeat these very giants.
Prayer: Father, help us to sing a little louder, read a little longer, prayer a little deeper for surely you alone bring us moments of saving, healing, and transforming breakthrough. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
