“For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.” (Psalms 18: 28)
Are we relying on life, people, money, material stimulations, to light our candles? Are we waiting for some human circumstance to reignite a dying flame? Does our light seem to flicker out at the slightest gust of air, of material opinion or our own human doubts?
God alone has the powerful light that can vitalize our moments and our days and brighten the way before us. It is Spirit and Truth and divine Love that have this capacity to light us up, and God’s great fire is always at hand to give us the encouragement, the vitality, the assurance that we need. When we look to Him for our life, He will never disappoint. His flame is as eternal as He is—based on those everlasting qualities of Love and Truth and not on the whims of material sense and personality.
Don’t be distressed if your candle seems dim, if your inspiration and joy seem small. This humble state of mind only makes your wick more ready to receive His enlightenment, His assurance, His life-giving power. We can’t light our own candles with anything that can endure. But the true light of God’s love is always here, always ready to break the darkness with the torch that awakens, warms, and satisfies.
