Day Nineteen – הַיּוֹם תִּשְׁעָה עָשָׂר לָעֹמֵר
I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you, and I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations… Isaiah 42:6
“And He walks with me, and He talks with me…”
Ultimately the verse from Isaiah speaks of Yeshua. How is it that we share in His work of being lights to the nations? In what ways does He hold us by our hand? In Eph 5 Paul teaches that we are “light in the Lord” and “children of light.” As a family and a community this is our family heritage. Our families become lights of Yeshua in this darkened world.
• How do you see your part in Yeshua’s family vision? How are you a reflection of His brilliance? How does He shine in your life to chase away the darkness in you?
• Share your light with someone today. Find a dark place and ask someone to shine a light for you. Talk to someone about this today.
Who might I pray for today?
• Read over the following verses and discuss the different aspects of light in them; Is 49.6; 51.4–5; 60.1–3; Luke 2.32; John 8.12; Acts 13.47; 26.23; 1 Pet 2.9.
