Whom Shall I Fear?


The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?

On summer nights when I was a young boy we played kick the can. One would stand in the street on an upside down tin can while the rest would hide. If the kid who had his foot on the can saw you and called your name you were out. But if someone could break from their hiding place and kick the can before being called then everyone went free! If you were well hidden you might not take chances and wait for someone else to be brave. But if you were one of the last you were forced to make a choice and choose the moment to overcome your fear.
Life is like that also. One by one people who you hoped would be brave for you can let you down or disappear. One day you will have to choose to face that moment of vulnerability. We will have to face our greatest fear. Knowing that Jesus is on our side can give us the strength and courage to run to the goal. In that instant run fearlessly because God has promised to be our light in the darkest place!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
