9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 10 But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” John 11:9-10
“Walk in the light” is spoken numerous times by Jesus. Jesus employs it here to settle His disciples’ nerves. They are concerned about traveling back into Judea because of the death threats they have already received from Jewish leadership there. Would the Lord’s words “walk in the light” settle your nerves if you were following Jesus into hostile territory?
“Walking in the light” is another way of saying, “Operate within the Father’s known will and work. It also means you should operate with the revelatory words and knowledge He has already given you.” Jesus assures His disciples they will not stumble as long as it is day and that daylight is within them. What have you done with the revelational knowledge the Lord has already given you? Light is God’s word for revelation and Jesus is the “light of the world.” He is your first revelation and the source of many others thereafter. The Lord’s will should never be like “night-time“. We should never feel like we are groping around in the dark trying to find the blessings of God. If you do not have enough revelational knowledge, then by all means seek the Lord so you have all the revelational light you need. God is not trying to keep revelational knowledge from you. He is desperately trying to get His word into you. Spend some time today getting God’s light into your life.
