Our life is laid out before God, He sees every valley created by unwise choices that we have made throughout our life. But as long as our focus stays on the Journey Christ tells us “I am the 250px-Cloud_in_the_sunlightlight of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 (KJV)

Light has always been a symbol of the presence of God since He said “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good;….” Gen 1:3-5 (NKJV) And throughout God’s word there are Patriarch’s and Prophets who’s course veers at times in an unknown direction, even if they are a “man after God’s own heart”

But oh the grace of God whose light will forever remain in one’s presence if we continue to “look to the lord and his strength; and seek his face always” Ps. 105:4 (KJV) My friends, today let’s focus on the children of Israel who were in slavery for 400 years because they had gotten off course and lost sight of the light of God’s presence.

God remembered his covenant with Abraham and lead the children of Israel out of slavery to the promise land, which tells each of us, who has allowed the god of this world to enslaveGod's Pillar Leading the Israelites Exodus 13:21-22 them to the things of this world, God will not only deliver us, but through our faith will also lead us to the promise land.

The “lord went before the Israelites by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light.” Oh the mercy and grace of God, no matter what situation or circumstances that we may encounter or the length of time we may stay off course even after 400 years God’s promises are sure, they never change “for It is the Lord who goes before you.

He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deu. 31:8 And as we die daily, while allowing the light of God’s Spirit to transforms us into His image, our only desire should be to serve God, which then transforms all who are “sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more.”

7_heaven-300x225And now, we are safe in the arms of a risen Savior who has made us His personal light bearers as His presence allows us to be a light that shines in the darkness of a world that is also sinking deep in sin with no hope of rescue, because they have never known the light of the love, grace and mercy of God, the source of all true light.

One day soon my friends, eternal life will be our reward And “the redeemed will be sharers in His joy, as they behold, among the blessed, those who have been won to Christ through their prayers, their labors, and their loving sacrifice.

As they gather about the great white throne, gladness unspeakable will fill their hearts, when they behold those whom they have won for Christ, and see that one has gained others, and these still others, all brought into the haven of rest, there to lay their crowns at Jesus’ feet and praise Him through the endless cycles of eternity.” (E.G. White The Great Controversy)

So my friends stay the course because the light of the world Jesus Christ tells us “Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
