“The great thing to remember is that though our feelings come and go God’s love for us does not.” – C.S. Lewis

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?
This is another one of those scripture verses that would do us well to repeat to ourselves and ruminate on.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?”
Scripture also tells us that God is light (1 John 1:5).
And elsewhere it tells us that God is love (1 John 4:8).
This is in keeping with what many Near Death Experiencers are telling us, that they experienced a light brighter than they had ever seen, and that in that light they experienced a seemingly infinite love.
I’ve heard or read about hundreds of such cases.
I’ve also had the opportunity to meet a number of people who had such an experience.
These people say that they lost all fear of God.
The first letter of John goes on to say, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).
I experienced a taste of this Love while very sick from a ruptured appendix.
It happened in the middle of the night while in a hospital bed in 1998.
I can’t explain what happened.
I can only say that I knew in an instant that I was infinitely loved and that it had nothing to do with my worthiness.
Afterwards, I knew I had to share God’s unconditional love with everyone.
I do that today in my ministry to the homebound, the sick, those in jail, and I do it through my four albums and two devotional books.
I also do it right here.
Allow the light of God to shine upon you.
Allow it to dissolve all the pain, all the resentments, all the sorrows.
You are a beloved child of God.
Receive the Light and be free.
