When You Can’t See the Light, See the Son

“Light is sweet and it pleases the eyes to see the sun.”

Ecclesiastes 11:7.

Oh, how we love the light after the bleak and after the dreary! When skies are clouded with gray, oh yes, how we love the light then! Oh, how we cherish the rays of the sun when they win and fight their way through tough clouds and how we remember those rays of sunlight with favor in the storms and in the darkness of our lives. Yeah, in those desperately, dark days. sometimes we just want to throw in the towel and cease to run and forget to stand, don’t we?

Yeah, those just ‘give up” kind of days where we, for some reason, just can’t even stand on the promises of God! Some days and some seasons, It’s difficult to stand for the Truth, to stand for what’s right, to stand for the Light, or to stand for anything at all, isn’t it? No light, no sun, no hope, no motivation and who cares anyway? Just give it all up and dissipate into oblivion. It seems so much easier and safer that way!

Beautiful soul, are you ‘standing’ strong still or has uninvited trouble sideswiped you off stance, off course, run you off-track and mislead you out of whack? Has your world spiralled downward with all manner of distractions, and taken you along for the plummet? Yes, even when the sun shines and the days are good, we don’t see the light of it always, because too much stuff is in the way of our belief and too much dark covers our insight and blinds our pathway.

“They have eyes, but they see not, ears, but they hear not”

Jeremiah 5: 21.

We cringe, we fear, we recoil and withdraw because even in the sunlight the mind is bleak and dreary some days. Well, you and I and we and us ~ When we can’t find the sun, it’s crucial that we look to the Son and the Savior to find His love gracing us even in the dark. Find His care watching over us, even in the night. Find His awesome grace sustaining us over the hard places and the difficult challenges. Find the Truth in His Word to light our way and His protection to guard our minds, our hearts and our souls.

Yeah, in the dark, when the sun isn’t shining for the time, we must seek Him, find Him and follow Him! We dare not wait for life to be perfect and light before we determine to see the sweet, sweet light of Jesus’ face in the inclement weather of life itself.

The writer of Ecclesiastes wisely states in 11: 4,

“Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”

We truly have a need to look beyond the cloud and see the Son, even in our darkest hour because when we see the Son, the sun will shine again and once again hope will rise up within our souls.

Light For The Lost


Imagine night shift on a quiet hillside tending sheep! Day after day, night after night might take on the resemblance of being in a “rut.” Maybe ho hum, maybe boring, maybe sometimes a little frightening fighting off wild animals. Now imagine suddenly the quietness breaks when out of nowhere an angel appears radiant in God’s glorious light to announce news of a Savior’s birth. Surround sound and real life media follow as God Himself illuminates the sky with a multitude of angels, singing and praising God!

A night of the same old , same old, transformed into majestic celebration. The lowly shepherds were given a sign that the Light of the World had come. God broke through their darkness with light and brought Hope. Have you life without meaning? Frightened, Feeling lost, bored, in a rut? God sent The Savior, the Light of The World just to light your dark path and bring you into life everlasting. Trust Him! Let Him light your way. Let Him illuminate your life.

Luke 2:8-11
” And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be to all people.”

Walkin’ In The Light?

Psalm 119:105
” Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

Scripture defies the darkness and it’s pages exude references to the radiance of Christ, the Light of the World. John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

During the Festival of Shelters, sixteen golden bowls were filled with oil and lit. Jesus stood beneath them in the inner courts of the temple, in a section known as the Treasury, John 8:20 and said that He was now the source of the Light.

The Light of Jesus brings salvation, not just to Israel, but to us, the world, regardless of who we are, race or location. As Christ Ones abiding in His words, in obedience to His perspective and guidance we will not only walk in His beautiful light, we ‘become’ as light reflecting the radiance of Christ in our character. Phil 2:14,15.
Let’s be honest and ask ourselves a point-blank question. Is our light shining? Is it radiantly obvious in our actions? In our behaviours? In our countenance? Is it shining forth to light up the dark corners for others or do the batteries weaken somewhat as life happens and takes us with it? Yeah, maybe we need to recharge before the God of our salvation and the Christ who stood under the sixteen golden bowls of oil lighting the temple and point-blank stated in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. If you follow Me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” NLT Study Bible.

Philippians 2:14, “Do everything without complaining and arguing. So that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives, as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.”

Forgiven And Free

John 3:17
“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

The truth that God loved the world is basic to Christian understanding, and the basis for our salvation (1John 4: 9,10). Most of us have some kind of an idea of a God of love, somewhere out there, yet we choose to ignore the thought. It’s time to face it, acknowledge it and see it for what it really is. It’s unconditional and the vastness of His love has no limit, no boundary and no prerequisite. We can’t earn it, buy it or work for it. It extends beyond all race and nation and yes, even to those who oppose Him. Take a closer look.. Contrary to what unbelievers think, God’s Son came to save those who embrace the darkness, not “condemn” them to judgment. When we live in spiritual darkness we have no desire to come into the enlightenment of Christ but if we see His light of Truth and truly recognize the tragedy of our own situation, we do have a responsibility to believe. Glorious reality check here! Think about it and bask in the hope of it! There will be no judgment for the one who comes into the light of the knowledge of Christ and accepts God’s plan of salvation for his/her life. When you meet Him at the Cross, you are freed from the condemnation and the bondage of your sin and the chains that bind you.

John 8:36, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.” Have you been delivered from your sin? If not? Why not? Deliverance and forgiveness brings deliverance from the penalty and the condemnation and judgment of sin. Christ didn’t come to condemn you but to save you! If you’ve received His salvation, then, my friend, you are free indeed.
Oh the sweetness of it…….
