“And they moved … and encamped… at the edge of the wilderness. And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people.” Exodus 13:20-22 (ESV)
“And the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.” Matthew 2:9,10 (NIV)
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, ‘I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of Life.’” John 8:12 (NIV)
From the beginning, You have spoken and created light in our darkness. You are the Light. You bring Light. You illuminated what could not be understood. Your light guides us in the way we should take. Your light keeps us from stumbling. Your light is our comfort and joy. Your light pours forth out of Your Word and Your Spirit and gives light to our souls. Your Light encompasses all the truth of the Universe, yet fits in the smallest of places!
Giver of Light, stream Your Radiance down on us. Lead us through the wilderness of earth. We can’t miss seeing You, the Only True Light Source. Live in the manger of our heart. Bring light into these dwellings. Let Light do what it does best— bring life and joy forevermore. You are the Light of my world!
In Jesus Name Forever
