Our Light

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12 King James Version

There are times in our lives when it feels like we are in total darkness. As a pastor friend of mine said once “We were in a cave and it was so dark that we literally couldn’t see our hands in front of our faces.” Sometimes we feel that we are in a long dark tunnel and we can’t see any light, not even a flicker.

Our enemy, satan, is very happy when he sees us discouraged and defeated. However, no matter how many fiery arrows of criticism, ridicule and sarcasm that satan attacks us with through people, if we have the Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts we always have a light. It is the light of hope and the light of victory.

Jesus is the light of our hearts. When we get discouraged and feel like giving up because we are being ridiculed for serving Him, He understands how we feel. Our precious Saviour when He was here on earth serving His Father was also ridiculed and rejected. He weeps with us and He rejoices with us.

If you can’t see any light in your dark tunnel of loneliness, heartaches, burdens and problems, ask Jesus to shine His light in your heart once again. Remember, it does not matter what satan and the world say to us or do to us to discourage us, we have the light of the world in our hearts and it can never be extinguished!
