“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye” (Psalm 32:8 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

This verse is God’s promise to show me the best pathway for my life. I’m never out of His sight! When I wander away or face dead ends and detours, God is there to point out the way I should take. I’m thankful for a guide that has my best interest at heart.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You are faithful to give good, straightforward advice when I need it most. Your daily guidance is so reassuring to me!

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.

    “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness..” (Isaiah 45:3).
    At first glance, John’s banishment to the Isle of Patmos for his allegiance to the Lord seems a pretty dismal scenario. But on the contrary, in a moment when reality on the outside seemed darkest, John slipped into the reality of the Spirit and received a powerful revelation! God gave John a treasure in the darkness. He showed him the whole picture.
    If you are experiencing this kind of darkness, I encourage you to get into the Spirit. Start reading the back of God’s book and remind yourself that we are on the winning side! Remember that the captain of our salvation is the Alpha and Omega-the Beginning AND the End. If we will stay in Him He will see us through every dark place until that great and glorious day when we see him face to face! Hallelujah! What a thought!
    Prayer: Lord, when I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me”, help me to see that even the night shall be light about me; that with you the night shines as the day!
