Day 8

Be Still:  Dear Father, thank you for the Light which came into our dark world.  May we trust in Him alone.  In Jesus name, through the power of the Holy Spirit, Amen

Be Strengthened:  John 12:30-38
30Jesus said, "This voice was for your benefit, not mine. 31Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. 32But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." 33He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.
34The crowd spoke up, "We have heard from the Law that the Christ will remain forever, so how can you say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this 'Son of Man'?"
35Then Jesus told them, "You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. 36Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.
37Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. 38This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: "Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"

Be Stretched:  Is your trust in the Light, the Son of Man, or is it in the dark?  Ask Jesus to renew your trust in Him today so that you can overcome the darkness of this world.  Ask Jesus to show you His way for your life.  Pray to the Holy Spirit for help in trusting Him.  Pray for faith to believe the miraculous signs pointing to Jesus, the Light.
