Turn on the Light!
- December, 9
- God's Story
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
Psalm 119:130, NIV
In the beginning there was no dawn to end the night,
no sun to warm the day,
no moonlight reflected in the swirling water,
just a never-ending night!
God didn't leave our environment in a murky, dusky twilight. "God . . . separated the light from the darkness. God called the light 'day,' and the darkness he called 'night'" (Gen. 1:4, NIV).
While the light described was literal, it has wonderful analogy and personal meaning for you and me, because light in the spiritual sense represents the truth, clarity, spiritual understanding, and discernment we receive from God's written Word. So . . . read your Bible and turn the Light on!
