Forty Days of Promises: Light

God promises to give us His light.

 

For with you is a fountain of life; in your light we see light. Psalm 36:9

 

All promises are fulfilled in Christ.

 

Read Mark 10:46-52.

 

It's hard for me to read this promise of God to give us His light as well as the story of the blind man's sight restored without thinking of Paul's prayer of enlightenment in Ephesians 1,

 

I pray that they eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know..... (vs. 17)

 

Just as surely as the psalmist and the blind man needed light to be given and sight to be restored physically, we need our spiritual eyes to be opened and His light to be poured in. Jesus made it possible for this to be done in our lives each and every day.

 

In your reading, did you notice that the blind man was crying out for healing and could not be hushed? I wonder if I'm that desperate to have sight that only Jesus can give.

 

During this virus, I've prayed pretty regularly that God would open my eyes to see what I need to see. I wanted to see changes that I need to make with clarity. I want Him to shed light on the circumstances that we're dealing with is that we can adjust what He wants adjusted.

 

I don't want to minimize the trial that we are all in; but, in some ways, this crisis could be God's way of enlightening us. I keep hearing people say that clearing the schedules has allowed space for great clarity. I won't venture to guess God's purposes in extreme situations, but I don't want to miss out on the opportunity to thank God for the gift of His light for our vision.

 

For further reading: John 1:1-5; John 8:12; Luke 2: 29-32

 

God, thank you for all of Your promises. Thank you for being a God that keeps every promise and for sending Your Son to fulfill them all. I'm so amazed by the times I've seen Your truth so clearly and experienced Your light over my life so brightly. I have no doubt that each and every lady reading this devotion will face a situation today that requires Your vision. Please give it to us. Show up in our decisions, in our relationships, and in our work in LIGHT and clarity. We will turn back and point to You.
