“Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous” (4). The psalmist reminds us that, as the people of God, we will face dark times, but in the midst of these troubles, “light dawns.” When we find “great delight in his commands” and walk in God’s ways, giving generously, pursuing justice, and helping the poor (5,9), we can trust the Lord will bring good fruit from our lives. Safe in him, we don’t “fear bad news”, because we can’t be shaken out of his hands (7).
“Their hearts are secure” (8). As God’s people, we can live securely, knowing nothing – not life or death, the present or future - can separate us from his love (Romans 8).
