Live in the light

Daily Thought

Your Word for 17 April 2024

Proverbs 4:12
‘When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.’

John 3:19-21 Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.

Look at this phrase: But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light!  As we live by the truth and principles of God we ‘come into the light’!  That’s where I want to live.  How about you?
Let’s live by God’s word and His principles.  As you do this you can live in His light and enjoy His blessing and favour on your life.  When we choose not to do this we step out of the realm of light and into darkness and wickedness!

Proverbs 2:12-13 ‘Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways.’

Wicked men leave the straight paths. Righteous man and women stick to the straight paths.

Hebrews 10:23 ‘Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.’
