Walk In The Light

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin (1 John 1:7).

The Word of God is Light (Psalm 119:105), and the Scripture tells us to walk in the light as God is in the light. In other words, we're to walk under the same light in which God dwells and functions. This means we're to walk in His Word. The people of the world can't understand that light since they're not born into that realm of life. But we can walk in the light and have fellowship with God, because we're born of the Word (1 Peter 1:23).

Walking in the light as God is in the light means your judgments and opinions are based on the light of God's Word. Under that light you don't see poverty, sickness, disease, death, failure or impossibilities. When you agree with what the Word says about you, and then confess it and act that way, you're walking in God's light. God has given you His Word to light up your path, so there wouldn't be darkness or uncertainties as you journey through life. 

The Bible lets us know that when you walk in the light, the blood of Jesus Christ automatically cleanses you from all sin. The world around us is full of sin: the newspapers, films, people and even the very air we breathe are defiled and God knows it. Then often times, we do things that are wrong without knowing, but thanks be unto God! He says when you walk in the light, you won't need to keep asking yourself, "What sin have I committed today?" The blood of Jesus Christ  cleanses you automatically!

Learn to walk in the light as He is in the light. That way, you'll never be weighed down  by the burden or yoke of sin; instead, you'll be free to serve God and run the faith race without hindrances.

Dear Father, your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I walk in the reality of your Word today, and as I do, I'm guided in the path of prosperity, victory and excellence! There's no darkness or uncertainties on my path because I walk in the light of God's Word.
