“And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illuminate them; and they will reign forever and ever” (Revelation 22:5).

The Lord created this universe and he separated the darkness from the light.  We now see dimly, but when there is a new heaven and a new earth, we will see clearly, for we shall see the face of God.  He is the light that shines in the darkness of this age.  As many as see the light, He gives the power to become children of God.  What you read here is not a new idea, but something the Lord has told us over and over from the beginning.

Lord, You call me to walk in the light of Your presence.  You are eternal and You enable me to walk in the light of eternity.  Guide me so that I may truly see and although I walk by faith, I can walk in the assurance that because You are with me, nothing can hinder me from walking with You always.  In the Lord, all darkness will be forever banished, and we shall bask forever in His continual light.

I may not fully understand all that this means Lord, but I do know that You have given us the words that lead to eternal life.  You have illumined my heart, Holy Spirit.  Continue to guide my footsteps in the light of Your word so that I may continue preparing to be with You forever.  Whatever would hinder me, remove, and guard me in my walk so that I may always move closer to You.  Amen.
