“For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.” Psalm 36:9, NKJV.
“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord” Psalm 31:24, NKJV.
While I was lying in my bed at night, I opened my eyes to a room completely dark. However, as I turned and looked through the window, a flash of light was shining directly at me. It appeared very small, but I noticed it was very bright and pierced through the darkness. Just that alone encouraged me.
You may feel like you are in a completely dark moment in your life. Your situation may seem like there is no way out, and you don’t know what to do. As a man, you’re tough inside, but what you are experiencing is really challenging your faith.
But know this: if you lift your head, if you will turn your eyes, you will see Jesus, Who is your Light and your life. He is always there. He is your Savior, King, and your Hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). As we turn to the Light, we will see light. As we turn to the Way, we will see a way. He will strengthen you, and you’ll see where the wisdom and favor is. You will see a divine purpose for it all, and God is bringing something good from this.
As long as you have him with you, there is always hope. I declare light is breaking through for you now.
Prayer: Father, I see darkness all around me, yet as I turn my eyes and look upon Jesus, my Light, and my life, I am always encouraged to have hope. I see the Light of the world and the Hope of glory. Jesus, You are with me, and through You, I see the light breaking through. I thank You, and I will trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
