“Light is sown like seed for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart. Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones, and give thanks to His holy name.” (Psalm 97:11-12)
Christ is the light of the world. Christ in you is light that is like a seed that grows. He will grow in you His likeness. Those who are in Christ, or should we say, Christ in them, are the righteous ones who give thanks for His holy name. Come then into the salvation prepared beforehand for those who walk humbly before the Lord and live according to His never-changing Word.
Lord, You have called me to the salvation You have prepared before the foundation of the world. Guide me according to Your purposes to walk with You, the One who sees all things, to walk in the light You have revealed. May I grow in the likeness of Christ and see in Him the goodness You have intended from the beginning. Lead me, O Lord, in the way I should go now and always.
Lord Jesus, You have made possible the salvation for all who believe. You are the light that shines in the darkness. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to walk that I would now and always let Your light shine through me. You have called me through Your promises to be one of the children of the Father. Guide me, O Lord, that I may finish the course You have set before me. Amen.
