Darkness which may even be felt. Exodus 10:21
When the Lord judged Egypt, the ninth plague was darkness, which fell over the land like a blanket. The Bible says the darkness could be felt, and “they did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings” (Exodus 10:23). Later the same phenomenon happened again at the Red Sea. The Angel of God “came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. Thus it was a cloud and darkness to the one, and it gave light by night to the other” (Exodus 14:20).
Those who are followers of Christ walk in light. Their lives are radiant, for the Light of the World lives within them. The rest of the world abides in darkness, and the darkness is deep enough to be felt.
There is a supernatural fluorescence to the smiles, the actions, the words, the service, and the personalities of God’s children. Let’s make sure we are “blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15).
If you have only a little ray of light, show out distinctly that you are for Him. G. V. Wigam
