on Friday, 24 February 2017. Posted in Devotionals

Hebrews 4:15 says, "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." We can be tempted by all kinds of things in this world, but must always remember that Christ was tempted, but overcame sin. Therefore we can overcome. Pastor Rick Warren said, "Since God intends to make you like Jesus, he will take you through the same experiences Jesus went through." Overcoming temptation through Christ is our Daily Light.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 says simply, "Pray without ceasing." This is a simple, but profound reminder from Paul about the importance of praying to God.

"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while..." This comes from Mark 6:31. We can find such rest and refreshment when we come to Jesus. He will take away every burden and show up right in the struggle. Charles Spurgeon said, "Saving faith is an immediate relation to Christ, accepting, receiving, resting upon Him alone, for justification, sanctification and eternal life by virtue of God's grace." Resting in Christ is our Daily Light.

Colossians 3:16 says, "Let the word of Christ dwell richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."  When we allow God's word to dwell in us, we can't help but live it out in our daily lives.  Chuck Smith said, "God's Word is the only reliable guideline for living."  Living out God's Word is our Daily Light.
