YOUR LIGHT SHINING THROUGH THE DARK OF THE NIGHT
“By your words I can see where I’m going;
they throw a beam of light on my dark path.”
PSALM 119:105 (MSG)
Imagine if we NEVER had mobile phones. How on earth would we talk to people standing on the other side of the planet?? Let’s be real, two tins connected by a piece of string probably won’t do the trick. Imagine if we had to read whole book encyclopaedias in order to research just one question for our geography assignments? Oh wait, that happened once upon a time. Ha. Sorry parents.
Okay, try this – imagine if cars had no headlights so we couldn’t see our way in the dark of the night? I mean, the road still exists, but if I can’t see where I’m going…
When we encounter problems and hard situations in our lives, God has a solution for everything we need – solutions that are found in His word. The Bible is full of promises that will “light the path” in front of us every day, so we can be sure of each step that we take and know which way to go.
Maybe something happened at school. Maybe there’s an issue with a friend that has been bugging you and you don’t know what to do. Or maybe, things at home are not so peachy.
Whenever we find ourselves shrouded in darkness and we can’t see our way forward, we can look to God’s Word to clear up the confusion and remove doubt, so that we can see our way forward. His light is as constant as His love – no matter how dark or long the night, His is a forever-kind-of-light that will shine through!
