“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, NKJV.
One morning my youngest son came to me and said, “Mommy, I have a surprise for you.” He wanted me to close my eyes and hold his hand so he could lead me. So I did. I had to trust he would not let me fall, run into a wall or step on anything on the floor. But as I walked with him, I could feel him moving and kicking things out of my way. He wanted me to get to his surprise without any harm. Then when we arrived, he shouted, “Surprise!”
The Lord deals with us in the same way. He reveals to our heart that He has something in store for us—an expected end. All He requires is that we put our hands in His and let Him lead us. What we don’t know is He is constantly moving things out of our way that could potentially harm us.
Maybe you’re walking by faith, and you’re hoping God won’t let you fall, won’t let you run into a wall or step in any situation that could bring you harm. Maybe you have entrusted your entire spiritual well-being into God’s care like never before, and you are hoping God will do what He said He’ll do. My sister, He will. If you keep walking with the Lord and letting Him lead you, you will arrive on time to His expected end.
Prayer: Thank You Father God for revealing to my heart that You have something in store for me. I put my hand in Yours, and I trust You to lead me wherever You would have me go. I know You love me and have my best interest at heart. I know You won’t let me fall. Thank You for moving people and things out of my way that are not good for me. I trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I have to learn to trust that God loves me enough that He won’t let me fall, run into a situation, or step in something that He can’t or won’t get me out of or bring me through. Forgive me Father.
Oh thank you ladies. This word is exactly what I’m going through and to hear it was like the Lord Himself speaking to me. I’m trying to trust Him despite my feelings and to know he will come through. Blessings and Love to you all♡

Dear LJ continue to seek the Lord in his word. As you read scripture you will find that he will quench your thirst and bring peace upon your heart. And as you focus on him and not your circumstances by his grace he will walk you through your situation, take you out of your situation or better your situation as he holds you and strengthens you and covers you with his holy and precious love. You Are Not Alone he is right by your side and he knows your heart. He wants you to know that he loves you so, so much. God bless you.

“I am the Light of the world” (John 8:12) is the second of seven “I AM” declarations of Jesus, recorded only in John’s gospel, that point to His unique divine identity and purpose. In declaring Himself to be the Light of the world, Jesus was claiming that He is the exclusive source of spiritual light. No other source of spiritual truth is available to mankind.
There are two types of light in the world. We can perceive one, or both, or neither! When we are born into this world, we perceive physical light, and by it we learn of our Creator’s handiwork in the things we see. However, although that light is good, there is another Light, a Light so important that the Son of God had to come in order to both declare and impart it to men. John 8:12 records, “When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, ‘I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life.’” The allegory used by the Lord in this verse speaks of the light of His Truth, the light of His Word, the light of eternal Life. Those who perceive the true Light will never walk in spiritual darkness.
We take a candle into a room to dispel the darkness. Likewise, the Light of Jesus Christ has to be taken into the darkness of sin that engulfs the hearts and lives of those who are not following Him. That’s the condition behind having this Light—that we follow Him. If we do not follow Him, we will not have this light, this truth, this eternal life.
Physical light is necessary for physical life. The earth would certainly change very rapidly if there were no longer any sunlight. A forest full of trees with very thick canopies of foliage high above has very little plant life on the ground except for moss or lichen, which needs little sunlight. Plants will never move away from the light—they are said to be positively phototropic, drawn to the light. In the same way, spiritual light is necessary for spiritual life, and this can be a good test of our standing in Christ. The believer will always tend toward spiritual things; he will always tend toward fellowship, prayer, the Word of God, and so on. The unbeliever always does the opposite (John 1:5; 3:19–20) because light exposes his evil, and he hates the light. Indeed, no man can come into the true spiritual light of Jesus Christ, unless he is enabled (John 6:37).
Following Jesus is the condition of two promises in John 8:12. First, His followers will never walk in darkness, which is a reference to the assurance of salvation we enjoy. As true followers of the Light, we will never follow the ways of sin, never live in a state of continually sinning (1 John 1:5–7). Rather, we repent of our sin in order to stay close to the Light of the world. The second promise is that we will reflect the Light of Life. Just as He came as the Light of the world, He commands us to be “lights,” too. In Matthew 5:14–16 we see believers depicted as the light of the world. Just as the moon has no light of its own, reflecting the light of the sun, so are believers to reflect the Light of Christ so that all can see it in us. The Light is evident to others by the good deeds we do in faith and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The emphasis here is maintaining a credible and obvious witness in the world, a witness that shows us to be faithful, God-honoring, trustworthy, sincere, earnest, and honest in all that we do. Also, we should always be ready to give an account of the hope that we have (1 Peter 3:15), for the gospel Light we have is not to be covered, but made obvious for all to see and benefit from, that they, too, may leave the darkness and come into the Light.
Thank u ! May GOD BLESS U ABUNDANTLY, AMEN AND AMEN.
