Seen how difficult it is to get things done in the dark? Light is one of God’s gift to mankind that we should never take for granted. Imagine what the world would have been like if God had left it dark? Even now that we have day time with the sun and electricity to light up our homes and streets, see how many evil goes on when it’s dark.
Light brightens our path and gives us a sense of confidence. When a place is dark, you get scared to go there and even when you are there, you can’t do anything in the dark. All you feel in the dark is fear and anxiety. But it’s not like that when there is light.
When there is light, you can gladly and confidently walk into a room and you are able to get things done because you can see. That is what knowing God and his word does for us.
Not knowing God and his word is like living in the dark – all you feel is lost and scared because you are in the dark. But once you come to know God and you get to know his word, you get in the light and that brings you a sense of peace and confidence to go through life.
Below, we’ll take a look at some bible verses about light and its significance in our lives.
