Closer: 30 Days of Prayer and Fasting

Day Twelve: Children of Light

Proverbs 4:18
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,

shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

Excerpt from Mathew Henry's Commentary:
"The way of the righteous is light; Christ is their Way, and He is the Light. The saints will not be perfect till they reach Heaven, but there they shall shine as the sun in His those that walk in the light. It is as morning light, which shines out of obscurity and puts and end to the works of darkness."

God has called us as believers in El Paso and Juarez to begin to shine. The darker it is, the brighter the light shines. Darkness cannot overcome the light, rather it is light that overcomes darkness. As you draw closer to God, you will begin to reflect His glory and so shine. As you grow in Him, you will shine brighter and brighter like "that of the rising sun"!

Prayer Focus: Pray that you truly begin to shine so that others might see the glory of Christ through your life and believe.
