Light of Christ shows the way in darkness – Prayer for July 22. Praise the Lord everybody.

On those days, remember who lights your way.
Bible Verse for Today
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
Have you ever noticed the trouble you have walking in darkness? You can’t walk with confidence, you must take baby steps and sort of feel your way around. Stumbling and bumbling your way to your destination with fear and trepidation. When you walk in the light, you can see where you’re walking, and you can walk with confidence because every pitfall, and every stumbling block is illuminated and easy to see and avoid.
This is how it works in the natural world. In the spiritual world it works the same way. Without Christ to light the way, we tend to stumble around in the darkness of our sin, and our sinful nature. Satan, our enemy, likes to operate in that darkness, where he has dominion, and can move freely about placing traps and stumbling blocks in our path. Those of us that are in Christ don’t have to fear the darkness. Jesus promised us that we would not walk in darkness as long as we followed Him. He is the light of the world.
We can walk in confidence, confidence in knowing that we can avoid every trap, snare, and stumbling block put in our way by the enemy, again, if we follow Him. So, as you go about your daily activities today, thank God that you can “see” and avoid the snares of the enemy because the light of Christ lights your way.
