As I was coming down it had occurred to me with the weather closing in that if my head torch died I would be in trouble. One little light was my guide. Though it only showed me my next few steps that were all I needed to keep away from the huge cliffs. It was my lifeline.
When I read the sermon on the mount it reminds me of this light. It’s a hard ethic for our world, but God is in it and He’s prepared to get His hands dirty by guiding our hands as our lifeline every step of the way.
There is much darkness, but, “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4).
Feel like a child in the dark near a cliff? Never forget who is helping you navigate your next steps with the light of His word and Spirit!
1 John 4:4
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
