OUR GUIDING LIGHT
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
John 8:12 KJV
Philip Paul Bliss wrote one of my favorite hymns “The Light of the World is Jesus”. I have cataracts and it’s hard for me to see so I love these words. “No darkness have we Who in Jesus abide; The Light of the world is Jesus! We walk in the light When we follow our Guide! The Light of the world is Jesus!”
If we are going through a dark valley, all the flashlights in the world won’t take away the darkness in our heart. We need to cry to Jesus and ask Him to please shine His light a little brighter in our heart. Not only will He shine His light in our heart, He will never leave us, not even for one minute.
Thank God for Jesus, our Light in a world of darkness and violence. It doesn’t matter how dark it is outside, Jesus shines His light of love in our heart. Someone said “We were in a cave and it was so dark, I couldn’t see my hand”. Even though he couldn’t see his hand, the light of Jesus was in his heart.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, our Light in a world of darkness. Please comfort and encourage all who are lonely, discouraged, hurting and who feel like giving up. Thank You for my Pastor who really loves You and proves it by his actions. Please encourage him. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
