The Light of His Countenance

God is Light
John 1:5

The LORD is my Light
Psalm 27:1

Every morning the sun rises, and we walk in its light and perform our daily duties.  Whether we think about it or not, the light of the sun shines on us all day.  Likewise, the light of God shines on His children every morning.  But in order to enjoy the light of God’s countenance, the soul must turn to God and trust Him to let His light shine in upon it.

Just as you need the light of the sun each hour, so, too, is the heavenly light of the Father’s countenance indispensable.  If we expect the sun to rise each day and receive its light, we can also confidently count on God to let His light shine on us.  Make sure that the light of God shines on you as you commune with Him in the morning.  Then expect His light to remain with you all day long.

Remember, it is the ardent longing of your heavenly Father that you should dwell and rejoice in His light.  So, do not rest until you know that the light of His countenance and His blessing is resting on you.  Then you will experience the truth of the words:

They will walk in the light of your  presence, LORD. They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation.”  Psalm 89:15-16.
