Have you ever tried finding your way in dark, unfamiliar surroundings without a light? When the power goes out in your home unexpectedly, you reach for a flashlight and hope that the batteries are still good.
Stumbling around in the darkness is not a pleasant experience. Even in familiar settings, it is easy to lose our sense of direction. When we find ourselves enshrouded in darkness, uneasiness rises within us and fear clutches our throats.
As we walk through life, we can lose our way too. Darkness can descend and which way to go is no longer clear.
Prayer: Dear God, You told us that Your Word is our light. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105). Thank You for giving us direction, hope, and reassurance.
