Thought for the day

“The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has 
not overcome it” 
John 1.5

Whatever the darkness surrounding us at present we are so blessed to have the wonderful assurance of Jesus’ promise

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life” 
John 8.12.

Through the light of Him who lives in us and His unfailing love for us, we are given the inner strength to overcome many of our fears and anxieties. Just as surely as the light from the pillar of fire guided the Israelites out of Egypt (Exo 13.21) so God will guide us through and out of the darkness of the Coronavirus pandemic.

As our hearts go out to so many people suffering in so many ways at present we long for them to have His light shining in their lives, bringing them His peace and strength; helping to turn their darkness into light; helping them to know they are not alone. Let’s pray for opportunities to shine His light in whatever way we can so that many others will come to know of our Saviour’s great love for them.

.….let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 
Matt 5:16

God bless and keep you safe
