Trapped in the Darkness?
I am the light of the world. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
Imagine being in a cave without a flashlight. Can you see any shadows? You cannot even see your hand! Shadows are only visible in the presence of light.
Regardless of how dark, how large, how absolutely ominous a shadow appears, it is only there because there is light. David says, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.” Why? Because “Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).
Jesus has taken the sting out of sin and the fear out of the grave. He has empowered us with the Holy Spirit to give us confidence that He will always be with us and watch over us.
There are many today who are grieving because of a loss—the loss of a loved one, a job, a wayward child. Pray for them. Send them a note of hope and include 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort , who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”
