Stumbling in the Dark…

Read: Mark 4-5
Marked: Mark 4:21-22, Also He said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.”

Once I got up in the. Igbo but left the light off. As I walked I drove my left foot hard into the bedroom door that was partially open. My little toe was pushed forcefully to the side. The pain was excruciating. I didn’t see the open door in the dark.

A light meant to be used when it’s dark. In the light we see obstacles such as open doors. The Bible is a light in the dark, but it can’t shine if it’s hidden away, under a basket, or under a bed. A light is meant for a lamp stand, elevated, so the light of it can reach the furthest corner of a room and illuminate our path.

The Psalmist wrote, Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105). Light makes our path in the dark easier to see. We don’t know where to walk in life without the light of God’s Word. Using it will help us abound a lot of pain.
