“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.” Psalm 82:5.
Apart from God, I may assume that I know things, but I don’t.
Seeing things from God’s perspective requires living close to Him.
My life is often led in the framework of my own understanding. Will I, in this state, catch glimpses of how things should be? Certainly. The godless are often employed unconsciously in doing God’s will. Think of Pharaoh. Think of Nebuchadnezzar.
I know what it is like to walk close to God, but I also know what it’s like to be apart from Him.
The satisfaction that the former brings should thoroughly discourage me from entering the latter. But often it doesn’t.
I have decided that I need to get up earlier so that there’s space for quiet time in the Word, and time to write about it and pray.
I have started too many days in “darkness.” The decisions made thereafter are done godlessly. I don’t want that happening anymore. Therefore, I’m chasing a Godly start.
Conclusion: I must have God’s Light in my life at the start of each new day.
