No Darkness

Praise the Lord, my soul.
Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
2 The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent. Psalm 104:1-2

The imagery the psalm writer gives us here is interesting and vivid.

First we see God in absolute control of everything He touches.

Next we understand that when Jesus said He was the Light of the World, He meant it quite literally. He is wrapped in light. We get the idea that He is totally light.

Moses had to hide in the cleft of a rock because God’s brilliance would have blinded him (Exodus 33:22). Still, Moses’ face shone brightly when he came donw the mountain. Imagine what would have happened had he gotten a glimpse at God!

So the light in this passage is significant because it keeps us “thirsty” for what is to come.

There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. Revelation 22:5

Hallelujah!
