For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings. (Proverbs 5:21)
Walking in the dark can be a dangerous thing, both physically and spiritually. Jesus explains that He is the light that shines in the darkness. How can we all appropriate that light to show the way in our own lives?
How many of you out there have ever had any experience with sleep-walking? I imagine we could all share some interesting stories about our sleep-walking experiences. It’s relevant to our topic because it is a great illustration of the dangers of trying to go somewhere when you’re completely in the dark. With sleepwalking, you’re either completely in the dark because,
1.) your eyes are closed;
2.) you’re unconscious or
3.) it’s very dark.
Making decisive moves in the dark can be and often is a very, very dangerous thing.
The Bible tells us that the whole world dwells in darkness and there are a great many spiritual dangers, pitfalls, wrongs turns, broad paths that lead to destruction. And that we have no hope of finding our way through all these dangerous obstacles unless we turn to the light of God—the wisdom and direction, who as it turns out, is embodied in none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, yes, Jesus of Nazareth.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4 NKJV)
Maybe you’re in distress because, for whatever reason, life just doesn’t feel right at the moment and you know you need to make a change, but you don’t know-how.
“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:10
Sometimes we don’t even realize we’re fighting against God’s plan for our lives, and we struggle. But even when we’re struggling with (or against) his plan for our lives, there is a silver lining: our hardships provide the opportunity for us to cry out to the Lord for help. As he takes us by the hand and straightens our path, God patiently reminds us to lean on him, all the while doing some heavy-duty work on our souls,
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21
And the secret of Christian contentment is, of course, Christ — who does not change like shifting shadows. But he will not hesitate in helping you navigate life successfully.
If you’re yet to surrender your life to Christ. Acknowledge Christ today, accept Him into your life as your Lord, and begin to walk in the light He has called you into.
