Walking in the light of Christ- Prayer for August 20. Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord!! Have you ever found yourself in a dark room, struggling to find a light switch? That’s sort of what it feels like in a world without Christ.
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 with 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.
Those who are without Christ find themselves in this situation daily. They must depend on what they can touch or feel for direction and guidance. In Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are given the choice to walk in the light or in the darkness.
When you choose to walk in the light you can walk with confidence, knowing that Jesus, the light of the world is leading the way by His spirit. As Christians, we are called to walk by faith and not by sight. The light we are walking in is spiritual light, not a natural one. That spiritual light allows us our gift of discernment to avoid the snares and pitfalls laid out for us by the devil.
God wants us to walk in confidence, trusting in His guidance. Walk in confidence, walk in the light, walk with Jesus. God bless you all.
Walking in the light of Christ Prayer for Today
Father God, help us to walk in confidence today and every day. We thank you for sending your son to die for us so that we can have a choice to walk in your light. Father let us not only walk in the light but bring your light to others in darkness. We pray all these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
