Many are saying, "Who will show us any good?" Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O LORD!Psalm 4:6(NASB)
We live in a fallen world that was a result of man's sin. The earth was cursed, man died spiritually and for a brief season Satan has taken the reins of power and become the prince of the power of the air.. and the god of this age.
This fallen angel rules a fallen world through the medium of fallen man in an attempt to thwart the perfect plans and purposes of our perfect God, which is that the perfect Man, Christ Jesus should rule and reign as God's appointed king over Israel and become the Saviour of the world.
Evil and pain.. disasters and death are the result of sin and God in His grace set out to conquer sin and death and hell, by sending His only begotten Son to become the propitiation for our sins - and not for ours only but for the sins of the whole world.
But fallen man, who lives in a fallen world that is beset by evils and pain.. disasters and death will sometimes look to the ill and wonder where God is in all our difficulties and pain and cry out, who will show us any good? But all good and perfect gifts are from our faithful Father in heaven and all the evil has engulfed this fallen world has its root in sin.
David was a man that was beset by evil and pain, rejection and loss but He was a man who know His God and was able to quote the blessing that Aaron the High Priest of Israel first prayed over the people of God - Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O LORD.
As the people of God we too can be beset with evil and pain, disasters and distresses in life but we know that our God is a faithful God who is full of loving-kindness towards us.
Praise God that sin shall not have dominion over us for our Saviour has broken the power of sin and death in our life - for God in His grace set out to conquer sin and death and hell, by sending His only begotten Son to become the propitiation for our sins.
Heavenly Father, we praise You that You are a faithful God and pray that You would lift up the of Your countenance upon us, O Lord and give us Your peace in our hearts - this day and for evermore, AMEN.
