15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD. 16 They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness.
Psalm 89:15-16 (NIV)
Blessed and happy are the people who worship the Lord. Praising, Him with open hearts and voices raised in song, making a joyful sound. A sound in biblical times associated with trumpets and singing during feast day celebrations. To walk in the light of God’s presence, or the light of His countenance means to walk in God’s favor, enjoying His love and blessings. Celebrating and rejoicing; God’s righteousness and grace. Worshiping the Lord with shouts of joy and songs of praise. Delighting; in the light of His presence. ⁘
Are you taking time to worship God and joyfully praise Him? Is your heart open to His Word, and are you walking in the light of His presence?
Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for your righteousness and grace. Joyfully we raise our voices in songs of praise and worship. Lord, you are our hope and salvation, our refuge in times of trouble. Like the open, glowing rose blossoms, let us be open to Your Word and glow with the light of Your presence. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
Psalm 36:9 (NIV)
God is the fountain of life, the source of all life. Life flows like a fountain from Him. God is also the source of light; in Him, there is no darkness. God is both the fountain of life; and the source of true light. Light is found in God’s countenance, His love, glowing in the Holy Spirit, and shining in Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. Like David, we are to be seekers of the light, the divine light, following our path, moving forward in faith, while seeking the beauty of the truth and light of God. Help us to remember, Lord, in your light, we see (the) light.
When searching for direction, when confused and lost, do you seek the light of the Lord to illuminate your path?
Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your blessings and love. You are our Creator, our Father, our light, in the darkness, our hope, and our salvation. Let Your light shine on our paths and guide us through the dark valleys. Like the bright open petals on the zinnia, let us shine brightly with Your light, and be open to Your teaching. In the name of Jesus, the Light of the World. Amen.

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, Lord.
Psalm 89:15 (NIV)
Blessed are those who know the Lord, and follow His way. They flourish in His love and find refuge in His strength. The Lord leads them on the path of righteousness and refreshes their soul. They walk in the glorious light of His presence and receive His peace, for God is with them.
Where do you need the light of God’s presence to brighten and illuminate your path?
Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we are blessed by Your forgiveness, compassion, and love. Strengthen our faith and teach us to turn to you when we are lost, afraid, or feel alone. As the hydrangea blooms lean on a bench glowing in the sunlight, teach us to lean on You and glow, reflecting Your light into the darkness around us. Lead us Lord, and teach us to walk in the light of Your presence. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen
8 for you were at one time darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light— 9 for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth— 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:8-10 (NET Bible)
Now we are light in the Lord, no longer part of darkness, we are children of the light. We need to focus our light and shine it in goodness, righteousness, and truth. Walk as a child of light, let your light glow and let it shine to illuminate the darkness. Spread God’s love and be a beacon of hope to all those around you.
In what way are you being God’s light and illuminating the darkness?
Prayer: Lord, we thank you for bringing light into our world. Teach us to glow with Your light, like the mums and vinca glow in the sunshine. As children of light, help us to join together and present a glorious landscape full of goodness, righteousness, and truth. Our Father, thank you for enlightening us and showing us our path. In the loving name of Jesus. Amen
