I was thinking that the enemy is like that. He lays and waits for my guard to be down and then attacks my weakness. But for my light, Jesus, I would walk right into my own demise. But His light is most obvious in my darkness. I am safe. Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path.”
I could see just two feet in front of me, yet I had enough light to move safely at a steady pace. God gives me just enough light for the next step in my life, too. Enough light to trust and move forward. Looking too far ahead can be careless, because I miss what is right before me. Slow and steady, trust and obey. I am assured a safe journey into eternity.
What could have been a terrifying 500 yard adventure to retrieve one of my kids from another campsite was quite uneventful. And so should my days be, free from anxiety, walking in the light.
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
