    Walking on Water from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of believing the Lord, of shaking off the naysayers and continuing on your own journey. People have a tendency to not want you to go where they have not been. Leaders cannot lead you, where they h...

    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly' the best of everything, the ...

    But Ruth said, Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. Ruth 1:16 ESVRuth walked along the road thinking about ...

Let There Be Light

  • For you will light my lamp, Yahweh. My God will light up my darkness. For by you, I advance through a troop. By my God, I leap over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect. Yahweh's word is tried. He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him. Psalm 18:28 WEB

    Total darkness is the complete absence of light. In scripture it is associated with gloom, despair, and terror as well as the normal meaning of no light. When you remove all light, what you are left with is darkness. Humans cannot distinguish color when it grows dark and as the light fades, colors become gray, and eventually black.

    One of the curses on Egypt was a darkness that could be felt. It was an oppressing, heavy, thick darkness, and no one even moved out of their spot for three days, but there was light in the houses of God's people (Exodus 10:22). This darkness was the complete absence of light.

    'Let there be light' was one of the first things that God did in Genesis (1:3). Jesus told the people: 'I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life' (John 8:12).

    Life is fragile. As people, we like to think that we have it all under control, but I have been on top of the world one day, and under it the next, feeling crushed. One phone call, and a darkness like this can settle over us, one that can be felt. The light of God's presence will drive away the darkness, just as turning on a light in a dark room. When the Lord lights your lamp, the darkness will flee.

    If your life is in a dark place today, look to the Lord Jesus. When you cannot seem to move, it is He who will bring the light into the darkness. He will meet you right where you are. His light can drive away the darkness and restore the color to your world. Jesus is the answer.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I look to You today. Please bring Your light into my life and drive away the darkness. Fill me with Your presence, restore my hope, and give me a fresh vision for my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).
