God is light.
He is spiritual perfection,
And because He is, there is light.
Light for you to see by. Both in your physical and in your spiritual realm. Because He is, there is also light for you: light from His Word. Light to guide you into purity and holiness, into the life-giving relationship you’re meant to know.
Light as nearness. As warmth. As illumination. For the child of God, light which leads you to an all-revealing, yet-without-fear relationship. The relationship you’ve been re-born to know.
So on days when you feel you’re floundering in darkness — unsure, unsafe, alone — call to Him! When you stumble, scared, along a darkened path, sure that no human could understand, or would care, or be able to help in your loneliness, call to your Father! He promises: you are never alone.
He cares. He knows. He helps.
He, Jesus, came so that you could be transferred out of the domain of darkness and be transferred, at His cost, into His kingdom. If He did that, will He not also do much more for you, beloved child of His?
“The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone.“
“… God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
“… Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life…I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.'”
He has come to us, He in whom there is no darkness. Because of His work for His people, His face shines upon you. Oh believe in Him, call to Him, trust Him!
And remember this: On days when your fear threatens to smother your trust, tell Him so.
- He already knows that about you.
- You’re in a no-fear-of-recrimination relationship.
- He wants you to freely pour out your heart, your need to Him! He, who is light, loves you generously. Generously enough to give wisdom (light) specifically to you:
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
(Isaiah 9:2, I John 1:5, John 8:12, John 12:46, James 1:5-6)
