We had made a run to town for pizza for the two oldest grandkids who were visiting. As I drove home it was dark. We were all amazed at just how dark it was and so much earlier than just a couple of weeks ago. I wanted them to see the fog lights on our car so I flipped the light switch. Everything went totally dark! Quickly I switched the lights back on. Without the moon to shine at night, it’s pitch black. We drove on home and I was especially glad for the bright lights that shined far ahead for us the rest of the way. I was reminded that being in the dark is something I’ve never liked.
Oh beloved, you may feel you are in the dark right now. You cannot see your way to morning or to a solution to the problems you’ve encountered. You’ve tried forging ahead but there’s no light and you’re fearful of what might be in the way. God wants you to know two things right now: 1. He is your light so He will always light the way for you to know which way to go and 2. You have the light within you so that you never have to fear, even when you don’t know what to do. This same God who saved you is now directing your every step. He’s not moved by the problems you encounter. He’s not dissuaded by the moonless night. He is the Promise Keeper and the Light of the World. He keeps all His promises to you and He is YOUR light for the rest of your life. If you cannot see the way ahead, then wait on Him. For it is His promise to you that you won’t walk in darkness. If you are fearful of circumstances, places or people, then remember the Light of the World, Jesus, lives in you through Holy Spirit indwelling so you have no need to fear anything. Your situation can’t blot the light out and your enemies cannot quench the light within you! Rejoice that you are fully illuminated with God’s love, joy and peace as you wait on Him for your next move. There is so much ahead for you that you will never have to miss as long as you walk in His light and travel in His timing!
God loves you and He’s for you! Even the night cannot encroach into your heart and mind for the Light of the World is with you wherever you may go! Rest in Him as you wait for His direction as you live in the Light of His wonderful Love!
