We Walk With Light Through The Darkness

August 16

“…when by his light I walked through darkness;”
Job 29:3

All believers will experience walking in darkness. We have an enemy who comes to “steal, kill, and destroy,” and God allows the trial of faith – promising that those who endure will come out as gold.

…”that the genuineness of your faith,
being much more precious than gold that perishes,
THOUGH IT IS TESTED BY FIRE,
may be found to praise, honor, and glory
at the revelation of Jesus Christ…”
1 Peter 1:7

But how can one endure when walking in darkness?

Darkness is the absence of light. But the Word of God states that believers will NOT walk in darkness.

“But you, brethren, are not in darkness,
so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
You are all sons of light and sons of the day.
We are not of the night nor of darkness.”
1 Thessalonians 5:4-5

Is this a contradiction?

No, it isn’t. When a believer is plunged into a dark time in his life, the Word of God assures him that he will NOT be without light. The light is the Word of God.

“YOUR WORD is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.”
Psalm 119:105

This presupposes that you are carrying that lamp, which is the Word of God. And if you are, you will not be in darkness. Turn to the Word of God and let its light shine on your path. What the Lord will speak to you from his Word, will be personal to your situation. It will provide enough light for you to take the next step.

The most important thing to God is his Word, and he invites his children to turn to his Word, for out of his Word you will find all the light you need for today.
