“The Light That Is Full”
by Dona Hake
The path of those who live right is like the early morning light. It gets brighter and brighter until the full light of day.
Proverbs 4:18 ERV
Last week we looked at scriptures from Exodus where Moses exhorted the Israelites to stand strong, and then he encouraged them to move forward. We learned that moving forward in the face of adversity is not always easy But our God always makes a way! No matter how dark the valley is He promises to be with us and to lead and guide us illuminating our path.  Today we continue with our meditation of being filled and staying full.
The scripture in Proverbs shows us that as we stay on the path of righteousness for His Name sake, His light will continue to grow brighter. We all know that valleys can be dark in this light yet His great guidance and light promises to get us through it all! The living Bible translates this scripture in this way… “The good man walks along in the ever – brightening light of God’s favor…“ Verse 19 is interesting and I loved this translation…
“Evildoers travel a dark road because they love to hide their deeds in darkness; they can’t see the perils ahead that cause them to stumble. “Proverbs 4:19 The Voice

This is speaking of those that do not love God’s Word and His will, yet we can heed these words and learn from them. We must always be willing to humble ourselves and confess our sin that we do not permit any darkness in our path. Our lack of seeking forgiveness and wholeness from our Lord would surely  hinder and dim the light within us until we are back in rightstanding with Him.
Today let us move forward in God’s Word, and His ways and expect the light of His Word to grow stronger and brighter, illuminating our path in Jesus Name!
