Only the best will do? When we consider our daily walk in faith we need to ask: Are we walking in the light or in the dark? There is light, and then, there is light. We can choose to walk in the dim darkness of our own choosing or the light of God’s choosing. One is dim and might result in a serious, spiritual trip and fall. The other gives us a better path to getting to where God wants us to go.
Think about it. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” When He made that statement He was talking about a light unlike any other. We can be content with less than the best and take the risk, or we could find the best light possible; walking in the light of our Savior.
God’s Word tells us: “‘Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light.’” (John 11:9).
We can ask Jesus to light our way through this life or we can try to make it on our own with whatever “light” we might find. Making decisions in the dark can lead to some regrettable consequences. The “light of Christ” is our optimum choice. Less than the best is not an option.
We pray. “Father, help me to do the right things at the right time. I ask for the Light of this world, Jesus Christ, to fill me today, to guide me, to lead me, to cause me to make the right decisions every moment of my life. With Your help and presence, I will not stumble, I will not fall. In Jesus name. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
