“You are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light.” 2 Samuel 22:29
Have you been through a long unending tunnel? As you pass through it, the darkness is so dense that you begin to fear whether you will ever see light again. Similarly even in life there are times when we go through so much suffering that we wonder whether there will be an end to it.
People may fail us, events crush our spirits and derail our hope for life. Nothing may be in our hands… yet we just cannot fail. There are some things that are beyond human understanding… among them is the love and wisdom of God. A broken and tattered man without any help can boast of the best because the best doesn’t come from the world but from the Sovereign God.
If you have suffered but kept to the right path, no matter who came against you – God is on your side. If you did wrong but are drowning in a sea of repentance because you realized your folly – the God of second chances is on your side. He will pull you on to a road of joy that will never end.
Darkness, pain or sorrow cannot boast or win over us because that Lord who is light is with us. He is our lamp, He turns our darkness into light!!! When there is light with you no darkness can ever overcome you.
“Dear Jesus, what a joy it is to know You. You are the light of my life. Help me to win over the darkness in my life through Your grace and love and strength, Amen.”
