The LORD will command His loving kindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life.
(Psalms 42:8 (NIV))
I do not know of anyone that is afraid of the daylight. It is warm and inviting. It is full of hope and vision. All is clearly visible in the daylight.
Consider the darkness. When you walk in an area that is dark and unknown, you grow fearful. What do you do when you begin to feel fear? Most people sing! Perhaps this is a God given mechanism to fight fear.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
When we sing, we are professing joy. This joy is a joy that comes from God. It is a joy that embraces the light. It calls upon Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior in the midst of all trials and tribulations.
The darkness represents sin. It is an attack of the enemy of God. When we are in darkness, either literally or figuratively, we should sing with joy to the God who gave us a Savior. We should gladly call upon the name of Jesus Christ to see us through the darkness.
What is your song when you walk through darkness?
