March 10 | Isaiah 60:1-2
“Arise, shine, for the Light has come, and the Lord’s glory has risen on you. For behold, darkness has covered the earth, and thick darkness the peoples, but the Lord will rise upon you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1–2)
Have you ever come into a dark room, thought you would be okay, and proceeded to stub your toe or bend your knee off every piece of furniture? Then there are those pesky toys your kids leave on the floor. We need the light to see what we’re doing.
God masterfully designed our eyes to see with light. Even the colors we see have to do with light and temperature. I am legally blind, and I do better than most in the dark because I remember where things are. But I still need light to see well.
Isaiah prophesied about Jesus, the Light of the world. He proclaimed to Israel and the nations that Jesus, the Light, would come into the world and shine on them. They would no longer be living in darkness. Aren’t you glad Jesus shines His light on you? He reveals things hidden in the dark. He keeps you from stumbling along your way.
The Bible describes God’s glory in two ways. First, it describes a fake glory cloud that weighs heavy on people, showing the heavy presence and power of God. But the second way is by the brilliance of light surrounding God. You walk by that light and Jesus reveals His power and glory in you.
Action Step: Read your Bible and pray today for the maximum amount of light and revelation. Help someone else see Jesus’s light by witnessing to them and walking before them.
Lord Jesus, You are the magnificent Light of the world. And you have made me a light also. Help me shine your light throughout my day today. I want others to see You in me, and come to You.
