The Light of Christ
In a world of confusion, those who know God through a relationship with Jesus, understand that His word can be trusted. God's words break strongholds, offer hope and promises, bring clarity, and exhibit His sovereign power and authority.
Psalm 33:4-9 says,
"For the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deep in storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast."
Our God walks with us, living inside us through the power of the Holy Spirit He deposits in those who trust in Him. With loving care, God has planned and fashioned each of us, knowing full well who will fear, love, and desire Him. Because His caring eyes are always watching, God knows when to administer the love and help we need in the exact fashion that will allow us to draw nearer to Him, if only we release our control and allow His work.
Psalm 33:13-15 says,
"The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works."
Where do you need Him this moment? He calls you Beloved and longs to comfort and care for you. The Christian journey isn't a one-time acceptance of Jesus as Savior. We are called to draw nearer every moment. We need Him; how we need Him every single second. Whether we realize it or not. He always waits patiently for us to rise to the next level of trust and release our unsteady control to Him, so that He can carry our burdens and deepen our walk with Him. Joy and peace await us when we allow Him to carry us through the darkness.
God's word calls to us with truth, promises, hope, and light. Immerse yourself in the One who created and cares for you with an everlasting love that cannot be matched. Make time to invest in His word. Come to know the Father through reading and studying His word. As you draw nearer to Him, God draws nearer to you. I know because His word promises us.
Light always pierces and overcomes darkness. Let the Creator of Light fill you now.
