“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day” (1 Thessalonians 5:4-5a).

Light always overtakes darkness.  Yet, in this age there are times of twilight when darkness seems to prevail.  Do not be led by the wickedness of this world, the darkness that proclaims itself as light.  Walk humbly in the light of Christ which is always shining and cannot be darkened.  The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.

Lord, You have already won the war, but the battle against evil in this age rages on.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go and then show me the direction into which I need to head.  Lord, You have been unfolding all that is happening so that Your will may be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Guide me that I would be one who does Your will.  Let me never be a child of darkness again.

Lord Jesus, You are the light that shines in the darkness.  You are the Word made flesh.  You are the bright and morning star.  You have come so that all who look to You would receive grace upon grace and mercy upon mercy to walk as children of the Heavenly Father.  Lead me now and always to be guided by You in the way of truth.  Help me to see through the darkness of this age and walk in Your light.  Amen.
