11.1.2021 – Sight to See His Light in the Dark

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”—John 1:5

Have you ever noticed what your eyes do when you walk from a well-lit area, into a dark room?

At first, it can feel like your eyes are “blinded” by the darkness…

…but then, after few moments…

…the eyes adjust, the pupils expand and open up to be as large as possible, increasing sensitivity to available light tremendously, and you’re able to begin seeing… that there are areas of available light within the dark room, and then you can see your way.

It’s just like a camera lens…

In bright light, the aperture opening on the lens is small, but in darker areas, we open up the aperture to as wide (as open) as it can be, so that the camera is able to pick up the available light within the darker areas.

This gives the camera the ability to get a clear view, to capture a clear, accurate picture, even in a very dark room.

And I feel like the Lord showed me something this morning, as I walked from a bright room, into the darker hallway, and for some reason I seemed to pay special attention to this this very normal, every day thing that happens with my eyes…

“Father… what is it that You are wanting to show me in all of this? Why did I seem to pay special attention to this very ‘normal’ and everyday thing this morning?”

…and this is what I felt like He showed me…💖✨

“My Light is available in the darkness, though it might take a moment for your eyes adjust to be able to see it…to see My Light in your dark situation

…it may seem like the darkest night…but My light is in the dark, beckoning…shining bright…”

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”—John 1:5

“And I will cause your eyes to open wide, that you might be able to see Me in the midst of the darkness.

That you might open up your eyes, that you might have increased sensitivity and sight, to see My guiding light.

And by My Light (the LIGHT of the Word 📖—Jesus, LIGHT of the World 🌏☀️—the LIGHT in the darkness 💡…) I will lead you, I will help you to see and to know the way that you should go.”

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

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”—John 8:12

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.“—Matthew 5:16

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free
.”—Luke 4:18

For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.“—Ephesians 5:8

Thank You, Father. 💝
