The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them. – Isaiah 9:2
The deeper the darkness, the brighter the light appears. Light a match in a deep cavern and it is a torch. It is those drenched in darkness who receive the shining light. When sin tightens its clutch, when misery becomes a darkening cloak, when oppression, sickness, poverty and despair close in like opaque walls, God sends His Light into the world. Those who prefer flickers to flame will not see the light. But people existing in the dark shadows yearn for the brilliance, and God will give it to them.
