In Thy Light We See Light

In Thy Light We See Light

In cartoons,  when someone  finally gets a bright idea  or gains a true understanding,  the cartoonist places a light bulb  above the character’s head.      The light was finally turned on.      Eureka!      I see!

The light turns on for us  in many different instances  in life.      People discover ways to invent something,  solve a problem,  and make things work for them.      There is joy in these discoveries.

Sometimes people think they are in the light  and that they have a true understanding,  but they don’t.      They are mixed up  with false religions,  trying to save themselves with good works,  adhering to worldly philosophies,  or even thinking there is no God.      When they realize that  they’ve been going down the wrong path,  and that what they thought was good  really isn’t good at all,  it can come as quite a shock.      Often times their pride  will make them hold onto  and defend  their wrong understanding  —  but,  such pride will not help them  —  especially in spiritual matters,  or if they had wicked intents.

When King David compared the evil works  of the wicked  and the abundant love of God Almighty,  he  sang in Psalm 36:9,

For with Thee  is the fountain of life;
In Thy light  we see light.

The wicked feel so knowledgeable  and smart  in all their conniving.      They are so pleased  with their evil plans  that they stay up at night  planning ways to outsmart others  and put others down.      They really think they understand  how to be happy  and successful.      And,  they actually love their evil plans.      That is in direct contrast  to the sacrificial love of God  and His righteous judgments.

All of God’s word  has been proven  to be holy and righteous.      God’s word can be trusted  to lead us  in the right way.      That is why David sang,  “In Thy light  we see light.”      If we want to understand rightness and goodness,  God will teach us  in the light of His word.      When we dwell  on the light of God’s word,  we will gain the right perspective  on all things in life.      That’s when the  eternal light  of God’s love  and salvation  will go on for us.      That will be our moment of “Eureka!”      God did it all for me!

In the light of God’s eternal word,  we will see the real light.      Then,  we will realize that in God alone is the true  “fountain of life”.      There is no other way to eternal life,  joy,  happiness,  success,  or other honestly good thing.

Enjoying the eternal goodness  of our Savior’s teachings,  we say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  You show us so many good things  in Your word.      Thank You for wanting to teach us  and save us  through the merits of Jesus Christ.”
