The Light of the World

Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path. -Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

“The way to get rid of darkness is to turn on the light, and the only way to destroy a stronghold of lies is to dispel them in the light of truth.” – Joyce Meyer, Power Thoughts

I love Joyce Meyer. Often, she gets right to the heart of the matter. Or, perhaps rather than giving her too much credit, I should thank the Lord– who always gets to the heart of the matter. Before I really committed to Jesus as Lord of my life, I walked in darkness, filled with fear and never knowing when I was going to stumble. Of course, when it’s dark and we can’t see, we are apt to stumble. Fear ruled my life and, therefore, governed my actions– whether I was conscious of it or not. How about you? Does fear rule your life or have you turned the light on?

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 (NIV)
