“Your iniquities have separated you from God; and your sins have hidden His face from you.” (Isaiah 59:2)
Disobeying God came with a huge price; humanity’s relationship with the Divine was sundered. To this very day, mankind’s iniquity separates us from God. We can no longer see His face. “We grope from the wall like the blind” (Isaiah 59:10)
When we have no relationship with the Lord, when the power lines are down, when doubt, denial and disobedience leave us in darkness, how can we communicate with God?
Thankfully God planned to turn the lights back on again through Jesus Christ;
“Unto the upright there arises a light in the darkness; he is gracious and full of compassion.” (Psalm 112:4)
“And I will bring the blind by a way they do not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known; I will make darkness light before them and crooked things straight. These things will I do to them and not forsake them.”
“Then Jesus spoke again to them saying: I am the light of the world, he that follows me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
Heavenly Father give me today the light that leads my paths, my ways and show me the light of Your glory in Jesus’ name…amen
