Scripture: Proverbs 15:30
“Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.”
We have discussed how God is light, How His Word illuminates our path and our lives. Today we see that light also brings joy to the heart. I don’t know about you, but I have seen this in my own life so many times.
Especially in my darkest seasons, God’s Word ~ and the light it brings ~ were the only thing around me I could cling to. I could not trust myself or my own feelings, I had a hard time talking to other people about my struggles, and that is a lonely place to be. But, praise God, I was not abandoned by my heavenly Father. I’m so grateful for the grace He poured over my life during that time because He drew me to Himself and His Word.
My darkest days are the times He taught me to pray the Scriptures. Those are the very times He held my hand and would lead me to a passage that would bring such comfort to my heart. Those are the times I felt closest to Him. And His Word – that light, that good news – gave joy to my heart and health to my bones.
Lord Jesus, thank You that You meet us in the darkness. Thank You that Your Words give light to our dark places. Thank You that the light of Your countenance and the light of Your Word bring joy to our souls.
