The Light of Men

I want to give credit to my pastor this morning at Better Life from whom I am borrowing this morning. In His message he said that God has not given us a map. We are not given a destination, so we don’t know how it’s all going to work out for us, who we will marry or what career path we will choose. Instead, He gives us a direction. Or more specifically, He gives us a star, just like the Magi. The star gives us a direction. That star for us comes in the form of His word, for his word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.

This light shines into the darkness of o ur lives. Our darkness can not overcome His light. Even in our darkest selves, the light still speaks to us and convicts us. This light exposes the deeds done in darkness, which is why the darkness despises the light and does everything it can to blot it out.

But the darkness can not overcome the light. The light will always be stronger. He will always be stronger. That’s why we follow Him.

May this encourage you this season. Merry Christmas to all!
