The Light of the World

December 28
The phone rang and it was our neighbor inquiring about our lights, which appeared to be on and fine. Her's however, kept dimming and she had called the power company to come and investigate the problem.
Life brings about physical days which are cloud covered allowing less light to shine in, while also there are days when our spirits seem a little darkened and we long for the light.
Praise God for his Word which promises:
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'" (John 8:12 NIV)

The brightness and joy of the Lord can be snuffed out quickly by the unkind words or rejection of others.  Satan is the father of lies and loves to bring darkness into our heads.

"We were created to live in the Light by focusing on what God thinks about us instead of what we think about ourselves. When we follow Jesus closely and completely in our thoughts, turning away from doubts and lies, we can find lasting security and confidence in Him."

So when you feel the lights of life dimming around you and uncertainty creeping in, call upon the ultimate power source, Jesus, and plug into the Word of God so that your light might shine!

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us
the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6
