Out of My Darkness...

"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light."--Isaiah 9:2

These words from the prophet Isaiah are commonly interpreted to refer to the promise of the Messiah. This would be consistent with how other Biblical writers described Him.

John's Gospel states that 'in Him was life, and that life was the light of men.'

Jesus said of Himself, 'I am the light of the world.'

Thus, those who walk in the darkness of uncertainty, fear, and bewilderment, with no direction or purpose, can look up into the light that shines in the darkness. My friend, that light still shines brightly to this day.

Look up to Jesus.

Prayer: 'O God, may we remember the light that guides our footsteps through this world of darkness. And may we always be ready to lovingly point people to that light, the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.'

Song: 'Out of My Darkness' by Legacy Five.
