God Lights Up the Darkness

When darkness surrounds me
And I feel weighed down
By troubles that scare me
Casting gloom around.

Drowned by giant waves
Splashing against me
But Jesus Christ saves
Casting light gloriously.

No darkness can dim
Or waves can destroy
For your light within
Gives me peace and joy.

You light up my darkness,
Like a torch in the night
You heal my brokenness
Gives me strength to fight.

Life has phases of dark and light. When we go through periods of darkness, we grope our way to look for light. How blessed it is when we have Jesus in our life because He is our light. He is our lamp. He gives us hope. He guides us to the right way. He gives us wisdom and shows us the path of blessing and peace.

The best cure for me whenever I feel down and in the dark is prayer. Being in the presence of God through prayer and through reading His Word lights up my darkness. It never fails to make me feel at peace and lighthearted. I do not think I could bravely and strongly face every darkness or difficulty in my life without God. God anchors me. God sustains me. His Word is true that He lights up our lamp and lights up our darkness. Darkness flees from God.

Whenever we are surrounded by darkness in whatever form and situation, let us call on the Lord for help because darkness has no power over Him. God creates light and darkness and He has power over both. He can dispel darkness. He can move away mountains that cast gloom in our life. So, let us call on God with faith. Let us seek Him and His mighty hand of salvation. He does not disappoint us when we approach Him in faith. It is faith that pleases God.

“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.

– Psalms 18:28-29 (WEB)

What darkness looms in your life now? Your hope is in God through Jesus Christ. Call on His name in faith. May you experience His salvation as He drives out the darkness in your life.
