“You are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light.” 2 Samuel 22:29
Do you feel like you have been going through a long unending tunnel? Is the darkness is so dense that you wonder if you will ever see light again. In life there are times when we go through so much suffering that it makes us wonder whether there will ever be an end to it.
People may fail us, things happen to us that crush our spirits and derail our hope for life. Nothing may be in our hands… yet we just cannot fail. There are some things that are beyond our human understanding. Among them is the love and wisdom of God. A broken and tattered man without any help can still boast he is worthy of the best because the best doesn’t come from the world but from our Sovereign God.
A Turnaround is Coming
If you have suffered but kept to the right path, no matter who came against you – you can rest in the confidence that God is on your side. If you did wrong but have realized you were wrong and are drowning in a sea of repentance because you realized your folly – the God of second chances assures you He is on your side. He will help you get on to a road of joy and peace that will never end.
Darkness, pain or sorrow cannot boast or win over us because our Lord Who is light – is with us. He is our lamp, He turns our darkness into light! When there is light in you no darkness can ever overcome you. Isn’t that wonderful to know!
“Dear Jesus, what a joy it is to know You. You are the light of my life. Help me to overcome the darkness in my life through Your grace, love and strength. Please forgive me for all my shortcomings and teach me to follow Your ways. I receive the new life You have for me, Amen.”
