Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways. Over the next 18 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day fourteen with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a path of light.
Walk a Path of Light
“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)
Have you ever stubbed a toe as you walked through a dark house at night? Are there things that you like about darkness? Why? How does light improve your ability to walk? How much light is required to dispel darkness? How much of your life do you allow Christ to illuminate each day? Are there parts of your life that you try to keep hidden in darkness? What would it take to allow God’s light to shine in those dark regions of your heart?
I enjoy exploring and have taken tours in a variety of caves throughout the United States. Every cave tour that I have been a part of includes a time when all of the lights are turned off and the visitors experience total darkness. In the midst of this darkness a match or small penlight is lit and everyone watches in amazement as the details of the cavern come to light. As you pray, ask God to fill you with the light of Jesus so that His presence in you overcomes all darkness. Pray that you would daily walk a path of light as you follow Jesus in all things. Pray that the people around you would come out of the darkness and into the light.
