Walking in the Light by Jimmy Otieno
"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)
The risks and dangers of groping in the dark are enormous. The Lord urging us to walk in the light is indeed meant for our success in life. Just like the case of groping in the dark, one has no idea or information on what is going on around them. In other words one is short of knowledge.
In verse 14 on the same subject, Christ makes it clear to the Pharisees; “I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going” How informed are we in terms of the doings of the Lord, God’s will for us and the havoc caused by the enemy around us?
In Hosea 4:6 a strong warning is issued against ignorance: “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests.” Nothing is therefore as detrimental to our testimony and growth in Christ, as not being informed of scriptures; ignorant of God´s will; and being blind of Satan’s doings.
Prayer: May we live our lives fully aware of God’s doings and His will for us in each and every moment! May we have eyes for the enemy´s doings so that we would not compromise our stand in Christ, but resist him, Amen.
