Darkness to Light
As a child, I was terrified of the dark. Even as an adult, complete darkness makes me feel vulnerable and afraid.
The unknown of what may be lurking around me is unsettling. I lose my bearings and panic strangles my heart and my mind.
In the book of Isaiah, this is the type of darkness the children of Israel walked in. They lost their bearings, they were oppressed by the political system and other armies. Hope was lost. Their identity was murky at best.
BUT Jesus! The Light of the World…
“For unto us a child is born,
unto to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…” Isaiah 9:6-7
Light amidst the darkness… Hope is here.
Jesus is the hope of this dark world. The Advent Hope.
There is always morning… God promises it. Whatever our dark circumstances may be, The Light of the World, our Prince of Peace…
He is on His way… He promised to return.
