Joy In Light

Light is known to be a symbol of life, activities and joy. You can only work when you have light. The eyes give light to the body, when a person dies, the eyes are usually closed.

The world was empty and dark until God called out for light. He chose light first because nothing flourishes in the dark.

Genesis 1:2 “Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.”

One of the proceeds of light is joy.

People use light during festivals and celebrations. They lighten up their houses and Christmas trees to show their joy. Halls and homes are decorated with lights, especially colourful ones. Couples lit firecrackers just to lighten up the sky after their weddings. There is so much more to remember about lights. Even God had to choose the rainbow as a symbol of His covenant with man after the long nights of disaster.

Genesis 9:13 "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth."


Light brings life into the home. Imagine days without electricity—people often get cranky, bored and tired in the absence of an electrical power supply.

Light glows and radiates to all, restoring hope, joy and life.

I pray for you, this month and beyond, you will not grope in the dark. In every way that darkness had stolen your joy, I decree—let there be restoration in the name of Jesus. You begin to walk in the light, and your joy is restored. Amen.
