“Continuing In His Light”

light in darkness

by Dona Hake

I was speaking with a gentleman yesterday and he was sharing how scared he was in a recent snow storms.  He was driving down the road and without warning he encountered a “white out.”    This occurs when the light reflected off the snow equals the light coming through the clouds.  He said what was most frightening was that he had no recollection of what was behind him so he feared stopping.  He was completely blinded with absolutely no visibility in front of him.  As I listened to him I could see how unnerving that had to have been.

God’s  Word tells us in Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”  As I ponder this scripture and this man’s story it causes me to be mindful that sometimes in life all can seem normal and just out of nowhere an unexpected problem or danger can hit.  With no warning at all you may be faced with a decision that could affect many around you.

It is vitally important that we take seriously that we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are connected with the light of His Word that we can know exactly what to do in such situations.   It is in those times that it seems like everything around you can just become dark.  The temptation to fear what your next step should be could cause fear to grip your heart.  Again, as we are walking along side of Him, we know all too well that He is faithful to show us exactly what to do.

light God is light in him no dark

 “The psalmist proclaims in Psalm 119:112  I have resolved to obey your laws forever, at every step.”  I believe this kind of  resolve in one’s heart  will always cause him to hold fast to God no matter what he sees or cannot see.    This is the man that will not be moved by circumstance but in faith in God alone.    We can be assured that our faith will be met by a God of total light because in Him is NO darkness at all.
