“When the sun rises they withdraw and lie down in their dens. Man goes forth to his work and to his labor until evening.” (Psalm 104:22-23)


That which stalks in the darkness is not a threat in the light of day. We are reminded to walk in the light of the Lord and the darkness of this world will not overcome the light of Christ which shines in you. There is work to be done and you are called into the light of the Lord to be about His business. Fear not the night, but delight each day in the gift of light you have been given.

Lord, there are many things in this world which frighten me. Guide me by the gift of Your Holy Spirit that I may not fear what comes in the darkness but know that You are always with me. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may walk in Your presence doing what You would have me do. In You alone, O Lord, do I find my comfort and my refuge, my help in every time of need.

Thank You Lord Jesus, Light of the world who shines in the darkness. Darkness is not darkness for You, for all things have been placed in Your hands. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of grace to know that I am always in Your view. Grant me according to Your goodness to have the eternal hope You have given in the abundance of grace which You purchased for us all. Amen.
