Today's Verse: John 1:4-5 (KJV)

Wednesday, December 11, 2019

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
— John 1:4-5 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Life! Not just living, but true, genuine life. Life that gives us light that darkness cannot steal away. That's why God sent Jesus! Thankfully that light still shines and all of Satan's horses and all of Satan's men cannot put their deepest darkest darkness together again! Hallelujah!

My Prayer...

For every good and perfect gift, for the light I have even in my moments of deepest darkness, for the hope I have of living with you in glorious and unapproachable light, I thank you and praise you with eternal joy, now and forevermore. In Jesus' name. Amen.
