I'm praying for you and remembering Psalm 27 that says "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life, whom shall I dread?" He is our light! We can welcome this day with hope and confidence.
Jesus Himself declared, "I am the Light of the world, He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life." I am so thankful we are not lost in darkness. What does it mean to walk in darkness? It is living a life of fear, uncertainty, not knowing which way to go, confusion, desperation. But as His children we can walk in His light today. This is so awesome! In His light we see light. "His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. " (Ps. 119:105) In Ephesians Paul exhorts us to live in the light! He says in verse 5:8 that "we are to walk as children of light." We can rejoice today because Jesus is our Light. We must arise and shine today, for our Light has come! (Isaiah 60:1) In 1 John 1:5 we can see that "God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. " Oh let's live in His presence today, in the light of the Word of God! If we will spend much time with Him, time in the Word, time in prayer, time worshipping, and in continual fellowship with Him throughout the day, His light will illuminate our path, bring understanding to our minds and reveal His purposes. Walking in His light is living in a place of joy and security, free from fear. His Word is our light and now we are carriers of His light to this dark world. Abide in Him and allow His Light to invade darkness everywhere you go today. He is the Light of the World , He is YOUR light and you are a carrier of His marvelous light. The Lord is our Light and our Salvation.....We are not afraid!!!!!
