Light and Truth

Posted: October 16, 2014 in psalms

Send out your light and your truth;
let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy hill
and to your dwelling!
Psalm 43:3

Isn’t it amazing that there are a lot of ways that God leads us back to Him? When we talk about God’s sovereignty, we can talk of God determining our steps and yet this psalm speaks of the author allowing God to take the lead in bringing him home. It speaks of a willful choice to follow God’s leading.

Jesus is the light (Jn. 8:12) and truth (Jn. 14:6). God sent Jesus to be the light and the truth to lead people back to Him. But it is of a willful decision to follow. The road to the holy hill is a tough one. The light will keep us going in the darkness of the night. The truth will keep our feet from straying.

It is God who will lead us home. Our response should then be in willful obedience.
