HE WILL REDEEM HIS SOUL FROM GOING DOWN TO THE PIT, AND HIS LIFE SHALL SEE THE LIGHT
The other night, I sat on the beach, in front of my house, to witness the rising of the full moon. I watched the lights of the fishing village grow brighter as the evening grew dimmer. As the glow of the sunset faded into hues of gray in the western sky, the full moon ballooned from the horizon in the east. A beam of dazzling light crept slowly across the water until it touched the sand at my feet.
The silver moon climbed high into the evening sky, causing the pebbles to shimmer on the beach like a highway inlaid with jewels. I could feel the moon light shining on my face like a lamp. Night appeared like day.
INDEED, THE DARKNESS SHALL NOT HIDE FROM YOU, BUT THE NIGHT SHINES AS THE DAY; THE DARKNESS AND THE LIGHT ARE BOTH ALIKE TO YOU
Precious One, be excited that darkness and light are both alike to your Perfect Father. Although you might be engulfed in thick oppressing darkness, right now, I, the Most High, can see right through it. You are safe. To Me, the night shines like the day. Although your understanding might have become clouded by the darkness around you, My Perspective has stayed acute. I still know the way.
When you cannot see the way anymore, Child, take your Father’s Hand. Let My Words be a Lamp to your feet. Lean on My understanding, for I will make your crooked paths level and straight. I will protect you from evil and redeem your soul from going down to the pit. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, while I guide you with My Eye. Your Everlasting Father, who sees in the dark, will lead you to the Light, where you will find your Purpose.
I WILL INSTRUCT YOU AND TEACH YOU IN THE WAY YOU SHOULD GO; I WILL GUIDE YOU WITH MY EYE
Are all your paths crooked right now? Has darkness closed in around you, causing you to stumble around, looking for the right way? Have you fallen into the pit?
Take God’s Hand and ask Him to lead you out of the pit into the Light? Remember, He can clearly see the way…always.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I am in darkness and I am lost and afraid. I look around me, but I do not see the way. All my paths seem crooked. I do not know what to do and where to go. I am lost in my negative thoughts of hopelessness, helplessness, and powerlessness. I need help.
As I take Your Hand, O Lord, lead me to the Light, so I may be filled with Your Joy, Hope, and Peace. Take me to the place of Belonging and Acceptance. Let me be found. Be a Lamp to my feet. Guide me to Your Purpose. Your Name be praised.
Maintain an Awareness
If you surrender your pain to the father-of-lies, he will coax you into sinful solutions of hiding, blaming, and running. He will take you down that broad road of destruction where he will kill you from the inside out.
