Part 2 of our series on God’s Light
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to guide my path.
This verse is proof that God doesn’t want us to stumble and fall through the darkness this world produces. He wants us to see our path and know how to walk forward. Now, as my pastor said Sunday, that may mean just a step at a time, but as long as we are walking forward in His path, we will have a light guiding us.
However, most of us don’t want just a step; we want to see the big picture and where those steps would lead. However, if you think about any person from the Bible, you will see examples of how their trust in God was visible in their lives. Moses stood in front of the red sea, staring at the water. He didn’t know what would happen, but he trusted God. Abraham took Isaac up that mountain, trusting God. Noah built the ark, Joshua marched around the wall, and the list goes on.
He was the Light shining in front of these men and their hearts. Esther didn’t know if she would live or die when she went to the King unannounced, but she knew what she must do. She followed God’s will and moved in Faith.
God’s light helps us have Faith. We see the Light shine through the darkest times, the death of a loved one, the broken relationship, the loss of a job, the diagnosis, whatever it is, His Light breaks through those moments. It provides Hope. Hope that we are not facing these things alone, hope that no matter what our journey has in store for us, we will be okay. Our Hope comes from the fact we have a loving Savior who understands the pains and tribulations of this world, who conquered death and promised to be with us every step of the way.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Dear Lord, I pray you let us see your Light shine through our circumstances. Let us grab hold of that light and hold on to the promises that weeping may come at night, but joy comes in the morning. Thank you, Lord, for loving us, thank you for your Son’s death and resurrection so that we may have light in this dark world. Thank you for the Hope and Love that you provide us. In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen.
