Discovering the Light of the World
Wednesday, January 11
“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.” (Daniel 2:22)
People throughout the Bible believed in the light of God as God. For instance:
Daniel 2:22 reminds us that in praising God Daniel said, “God reveals deep and hidden things. God knows what lies in darkness and light dwells within Him.”
The purpose of the book of Proverbs is to provide godly wisdom to avoid self-destruction. Proverbs 13:9 states, “The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.”
Psalm 119:105 tells us, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”
Psalm 18:28 tells us, “You Lord, keep my lamp burning, my God turns my darkness into light.”
John 1:4 tells us, “In him was life, and that life was the light of men.”
Hebrews 1:3-8 tells us “Jesus is the light of the world!”
With so much Biblical evidence that God is the light, we call upon the Holy Spirit to open our hearts and minds to more fully understand that Jesus is the Light of the World.
Prayer for the Day: Dear Lord, may Your Light be a light within me. Help me to believe Jesus is the Light of the World so I can be changed by His Light shining within me – I 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.”
