Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.
Father I want to walk only in Your light, where I can see where I am going. I do not want to be blind to my surroundings, blind to those who would cause me harm, or blind to circumstances that could distract me. I want to be a child of the light. Shine Your light on me Father. Let me walk even into darkness and brighten it instantly. Let me to never be disconnected from You and Your truth. When someone would attempt to pull the wool over my eyes, reveal their lies and cast them away from me Father. In Your son Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
No matter what someone does or says to us we must continue to walk in light. If you are walking in darkness- and you know if you are- then you must reacquaint yourself with God and with Jesus so that you can reclaim your position and your light.
Living in deception is living in darkness. Manipulation is darkness. Envy and jealousy is darkness. Obsession is darkness. Idolatry is darkness. No one is to be your idol- your eyes and heart are to only be fixated on God.
Fight the temptation to live in mediocrity- and stand tall in God’s greatness to overcome all through His love, mercy and guidance. Overcome the desire for instant gratification, and instead be content in a life of patience and a still peace. Be a child of the light.
It is the first day of the last month of the year. Amazing how quickly this year has passed by- what have you accomplished this year? What cords have you cut that needed to be severed? What cords are you holding on to that need to be severed before they wrap around your throat and suffocate you? What lies are you telling yourself and others? Don’t end this year and begin a new one based on a lie- make things right now. Are you living a double or triple life- not being faithful to anything or anyone but the “liar”? You are to serve only our heavenly Father- so serve Him! Don’t let darkness consume you. Free yourself my brothers and sisters- free yourself! Enjoy your evening.
