For thou art my lamp, O Lord: and the Lord will lighten my darkness (2 Samuel 22:29).
John Henry Jowett used to tell of a farmer who gave him a lantern when he had to meet a train on a stormy night, saying, "Just to help you see where you are going and keep you out of the ditch.” Then the farmer added: "You see that glimmer of light yonder? That is Saddleworth station. Make for it.” The lantern gave him a light for each step, and the glimmer in the distance showed him the appointed course.
"In thy light shall we see light” (Psalms 36:9). "Light is sown for the righteous” (Psalms 97:11). And in 1 John 1:5 it is written that "God is light.” This light shines from His Word (Psalms 119:105), and we are to hold it forth as a torch in a dark night (Philippians 2:15, 16). But our light is from God’s lamp; we merely reflect it. We are to "walk in the light of the Lord” (Isaiah 2:5).
Are we in the dark? Let us be of good cheer—a brighter day is coming soon. Things will change. It may even become darker for a while, but the morning will come. When we cannot find one ray of light in ourselves, in our friends, or in the whole world, "then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day” (Isaiah 58:10). The Lord who said, "Let there be light,” will speak us into sunshine. Look by faith to Jesus, and you will see the light of God.
- "The Lord is my light; though clouds may arise,
- Faith, stronger than sight, looks up to the skies
- Where Jesus forever in glory doth reign:
- Then how can I ever in darkness remain?
- The Lord is my light, my joy, and my song;
- By day and by night He leads me along.”
MEDITATION PRAYER: "For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness” (Psal ms 18:28).
