This little light of mine…
The theme of God being LIGHT shows up all throughout the Bible. In John 8:12, Jesus says He is the Light of the World. Here in Psalm 139, a passage more famous for other portions of this great chapter, we stumble again on this theme.
“Where could I go from your Spirit? Where could I run and hide from your face? If I go up to heaven, you’re there! If I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too! If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there! If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting! Wherever I go, your hand will guide me; your strength will empower me. It’s impossible to disappear from you or to ask the darkness to hide me, for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night. There is no such thing as darkness with you. The night, to you, is as bright as the day; there’s no difference between the two.” (Psalm 139:7-12 TPT)
Yes, God has also given us a light to shine, but we need to continually thank God for His consistent life-sustaining, direction-giving, hope-assuring light throughout our lives.
