“Let There Be Light"
Monday, January 9
“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3)
The Bible first speaks of light in Genesis chapter one.
In Genesis 1 God speaks saying, “Let there be light” or “Let light exist”. God creates light at the beginning of time and sets it in the sky to govern the day and night. He shows His creative power and absolute control.
Light is the nature of God. His is light Himself. All light comes from Him. The physical light in His first day of creation reminds us what He does in every heart that loves and trusts Jesus, the true Light.
We do not need to walk in the darkness of sin and death because in Jesus we have the light of life and eternal life. Jesus is the “Light of the World”. (John 8:12)
Prayer for the Day: Creator God, we thank You for Your creation and help us to remember that You are the Light that shines eternally we pray in Jesus name – Amen.
Personal Prayer: “Lord Jesus, You ask – “Who do you say that I am?” Lord, open my mind so I can understand who You are, and who I am in You.”
