There will be times in your life when all around you is nothing but spiritual darkness, and you may feel alone. Other times you may feel like everyone is against you or that nothing is going right. These are the times that we need to have our focus on Jesus. You have a light within you, which is Jesus Christ, who will guide and direct your path (Psalm 119:105). You need to make a conscientious decision to purpose in your heart that you will look to the Lord and keep your focus on Him. Purpose in your heart that you will look unto the Lord all the time and not just in the bad times. He can help like no one else can. He is a Friend, unlike any friend you've ever had. He can encourage in a way that none can encourage. He can bless, provide, protect, strengthen, and listen as no one else can. Don't allow the darkness of this world to dim your light that your life illuminates. The farther your focus from God becomes, the lesser your light shines, and the darker your life will become. Purpose that you will always look to the Lord and that your focus will never waver from Him.
Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
Micah 7:7-8 (KJV)
