Living in the Light [Isaiah 9:2 Daily Devotional]

“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

Isaiah 9:2

This is an Old Covenant prophet predicting the future that we actually get to live in. The “great light” Isaiah is talking about here is none other than Jesus. Just as ancient Israel had been living in the darkness waiting for their Savior, so were we before experiencing Jesus. With Jesus, our “deep darkness” and despair are turned into a celebration.

Living in the Light Applied

Now that through Jesus you have been seen the light, you must walk like someone who is in the light. When you’re in the light, everyone can see you. That means your faith is public while also being deeply personal. People will look to you to see how you react to situations, and I encourage you to be the kind of person who uses your natural platform to encourage others going through tough times.

Living in the light also means that you can see where you’re going. Now instead of the blind leading the blind, the blind will seek you out because you seem to know where you’re going. I pray that you use this natural leadership gift to lead people to Jesus.


Father, thank you for allowing me to live in the light. I thank you for your sacrifice that took me out of my darkness and despair and brought me into your everlasting light. Give me the courage to lead others to and encourage others in you. It’s in Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
