Do you sometimes feel a little confused about a relationship or situation? Maybe you feel a little in the dark and you don’t understand what is going on with you or others.
I’m grateful for light, both in the physical and the spiritual realm. Last night our lights went out for about an hour. We lit candles, grabbed a lantern and used flashlights to get around in the dark. Then in an instant all the lights came on again.
When I feel in the dark or confused, I often pray for God to bring His light to help me understand myself, others and the situation.
Sometimes I pray from Psalm 43 (NIV 1984)
“Why must I go about mourning,
oppressed by the enemy?
Send me your light and your truth,
let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you dwell.”
God’s responds to my prayer and brings His light.
When God turns on the light of truth and understanding, in an instant everything becomes clear.
