“I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.” – Isaiah 42:16
Jesus is faithful, from the beginning to the end of days. He is the Light of the world, the One from Whom darkness flees. He allows us to be beacons of light that reflect His glory into the world. “Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear, then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” (Isaiah 58:8)
The Lord created dawn, and everything else, and is in complete control over it. “He Who forms the mountains, Who created the wind, and Who reveals His thought to mankind, Who turns dawn to darkness, and treads in the heights of the earth — the Lord God Almighty is His name.” (Amos 4:13) Our God is truly majestic! What an honor it is that He chose to reveal Himself to us and redeem us!
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, ‘I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ ” (John 8:12) We must shine for Him, to spread this joyful news to others. “For this is what the Lird has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ” (Acts 13:47)
