Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.’ – John 8:12
As we follow Jesus, the Light of the World, we do not walk in darkness because of the Spirit of God. Light is one symbol of the Holy Spirit. He illuminates and breathes life in the Word of God. A word we read in the Bible, in a sermon, or in our communication with the Lord and others jumps at us. It’s personal and no one else receives the same. He zooms in on what we need and shines like a floodlight.
The Holy Spirit leads us with peace, clarity, and surety in our steps. His revelation and wisdom bypass our natural understanding. Thoughts to do this or that drop in our spirit. Big things. Little things. Call someone; check on something; do not go there; an undeniable prompting. As we obey, we find His protection and empowerment. The bigger picture unfolds.
To turn on the switch, we remind ourselves of the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in our loves. With gratitude, we yield to Him, seek His guidance, and receive it in faith. In humility, we pray for Him to remove any blindness and for more spiritual sight. He draws us to know Jesus more and more and to recognize His workings in our lives, from glory to glory
