THEME: GOD GO BEFORE US
Exodus 13:21-22 NKJV
“And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.”
-The Lord goes before us to offer guidance in every facet of our lives as our good Shepherd. He guides us during the day and guards us in the night when we sleep. Psalms 23:4 reveals that the Lord comforts us with His rod and staff, and even when we walk through the darkest valley, we should fear no evil for He is always with us. Jesus is the light of the world, whoever follows Him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (John 8:12). We are all called to put all our trust in Jesus Christ who is the Author and Finisher of our faith.
Dear Lord Jesus we thank You for loving us with Your sacrificial kind of love, that You died on the cross for the sake of all mankind. We humbly beseech You to forgive us all our sins and trespasses, and wash us with Your precious blood. We thank You Abba Father for the victory that we have bestowed unto us through Your Son Jesus Christ. We thank You for protecting us during the day and in the night when we cannot see. Thank You for sending Your angels to guard us in the night and in our way lest we dash our feet against a stone. We humbly ask You to guide us during the day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give us light. May Your light shine in us and through us so that people may see us and glorify You Lord Almighty. May You keep our lamps burning precious Holy Spirit and turn our darkness into light.
