You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. – Matthew 5:14 NLT
Turn on the news or look at the internet and one can easily become discouraged with the state of the world today. There’s enough hate, crime, and injustice to make you sick just looking at it. People usually turn away wanting to avoid facing the truth. Maybe for you it’s easy to turn off the T.V. and look the other way. But in response to this darkness Jesus tells us: “You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14 NLT)
God is not calling us to turn away. He’s not asking us to hide in fear from the darkness. He’s telling us to be the light that makes darkness flee. Instead of becoming paralyzed by all the problems we see around us, it’s time to wake up and see how God wants to use us to me the solution.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for your light that causes darkness to flee. May You strengthen your daughters to rise up in strength and courage to be the light you have called us to be. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
