Filled with light // 29-09-21

“Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is unhealthy, your body is filled with darkness. Make sure that the light you think you have is not actually darkness.” Luke‬ ‭11:34-35‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The challenge here is to keep your eyes focussed on what can really fill you with light. Some people are looking for enlightenment through things like drugs, or world philosophies, or religion, or conspiracy theories, and sometimes they believe they’ve found it, but if your eyes aren’t directed towards Jesus, the true Light, then it’s not light you’ll be receiving! Others can’t see past the problems and injustice of this world so instead of Light, they get filled with dread, and it all feels dark. Lord, help me to fix my eyes on You no matter what else is vying for my attention. And as I do, will you fill me with the light that leads to life. Amen 💡🙏🏼
