" For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." 2 Corinthians 4:6 (KJV)
In the midst of the things going on in this world, and in the midst of things going on in our lives, Jesus provides hope.
In 2 Corinthians 4:6, the Bible says, the same God that spoke light into a world of darkness can give light, hope, and change to our current circumstances.
If I can be honest, 2020 was a rough year for many. A pandemic that NO one saw coming, deaths of innocent men and women at the hands of a deadly virus, life as we know it changing to something we have never seen.
But there is still light in this midst of this season, and in the midst of this darkness, there is still a Savior!
Light does not mean our problems will go away. Light does not mean that we will never see a dark season.
But it does mean that the light of the world will walk us through the darkness. The light found in Jesus will never allow us to be alone. Looking at Psalm 23:4, the Bible says:
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." (KJV)
This scripture sends us the reminder that even in the darkness, even in our hardest seasons, we do not have to fear because we have a perfect one who protects, comforts us, and keeps us in our dark seasons. That comforter is the Savior, that comforter is light in darkness, that comforter is Jesus Christ.
Jesus was there then, and he is here now. And in this season, I want to encourage you that while life is hard, Jesus is there. While this season may seem never-ending, Jesus is the light in the midst of the tunnel. We can find an everlasting peace, grace, and rest in the arms of the Father! There is hope and help in the arms of the Savior, the Savior who speaks light into darkness and speaks life into you!
