Moving From Darkness to Light

By Kathi Pelton

Though the natural skies may be gray and the news around the world may be appear like dark thunder clouds— for those in Christ, your path is filled with sunlight!

“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.” Proverbs‬ ‭4:18‬ ‭

It is far too easy for some to lose sight of the narrow path of righteous when the wide path of wickedness has become the accepted norm. God’s path has true light and life but the world’s path has the enemy, who comes as a “angel of light” to lure and deceive many into walking on his path— yet it is filled with darkness and death.

2 Corinthians 11:14– “Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

But, for the righteous— the sun is still shining and getting brighter with each passing day. For in darkness the light shines even brighter. There is always good news for those who have chosen to remain on the narrow path.

“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ…” Philippians 3:20

As you begin each day on the path of righteousness, be sure to be receiving God’s good report and then walk in it. If you do this you will receive the warmth and glow of the morning sun (Son) that becomes even brighter as you move through your day. Even the burdens that you carry can be brought into the light of His glorious love and faithfulness, where they become a light load as he lifts the heaviness from your heart. Though are natural eyes see darkness and our ears hear rumors of war and witness unthinkable natural disasters— God’s truth and plan remains unhindered.

The life of those traveling upon the path of the righteous is filled with light and beauty. If you are having a hard time finding the morning sun and feel stuck in the dark night of the soul— then step from the place where your soul cannot find light and ask the Spirit of God to lead you to where springs of refreshing flow and green pastures are before you. It is there that you will find light, healing, hope, renewal and the warmth of his love.

Like a young bride moving toward her wedding day with longing, excitement and preparation— so are we! We are a bride awaiting the day that we stand face to face before our Bridegroom, Yeshua. We are longing for that day with great excitement and preparation. The path to that day is lit with the love of the Son— and it is getting brighter the closer we toward the “full light of day— His face!”

Let us pray for those in Christ who are facing trials of earthly darkness— that their eyes will behold the Son— Jesus, their Morning Star. Pray that even as they are surrounded by chaos and grief, that they will find light shining upon their path that fills them with wisdom and hope. Pray also for those who are standing at a crossroads, deciding which path they will take. May they receive the eye salve from God that causes their eyes to see what is deception and a pathway that leads to death. Pray that they will have eyes to see and ears to hear the truth and follow in that way.

May your path be lit with his blazing light that comes from His eyes and your heart ignited by His love.

  1. The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
    Matt 6:22-23

    Thankful for God who is taking us out of darkness into His marvelous Light!
