So Moses lifted his hand to the sky, and a deep darkness covered the entire land of Egypt for three days. During all that time the people could not see each other, and no one moved. But there was light as usual where the people of Israel lived. (Exodus 10:22-23, Holy Bible, New Living Translation)

This event happened in Egypt during a time of enslavement of the Jewish community. God had chosen Moses to lead these weary Israelites back home, but the Pharaoh was reluctant to release them. So God showed His universal power.

Imagine the Egyptians engulfed in total darkness, unable to move about, but seeing the light where the Israelites lived. That’s how God blesses His children. When everything looks bleak, He surrounds us with His light. No matter how dismal life is, God casts a glow on His children.

Prayer: Thank You Lord for shining Your light around me. Amen.

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1, Holy Bible, King James Version)

Have you ever fumbled for a flashlight during an electrical power failure? Until that battery operated light illuminates a pathway, you’re in darkness. Sometimes life is a blackout with no ray of hope, no visible escape. Look toward the Lord. He is your light and your salvation.

Prayer: Lord, when I stumble in darkness and fear clutches me in its grips, lead me to safety by Your light. Amen.
