Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Light in the Darkness

Isaiah 9:2 (NIV)
     “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”

Father what greater metaphor could be given to people living in the despair of darkness and the shadow of death than the glory of your Son, who alone gives joy, hope and light to the world.

Jesus said: “I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.” John 12:46 (NLT)

No wonder the announcement to the Shepherds by the Angel was such joyous and glorious news: "10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." Luke 2:8-14 (NIV)

Father, we join the Apostle Peter in saying: “…..declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9b (NIV)
Thank you Father for this glorious good news long ago prophesied by Isaiah: “….. Your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has dawned. Isaiah 60:1 (GW)
