S (Scripture): Psalm 139
If I said, “The darkness will definitely hide me;
the light will become night around me,”
even then the darkness isn’t too dark for you!
Nighttime would shine bright as day,
because darkness is the same as light to you!
O (Observation): The psalmist hopes for the Lord to be the light in the darkness.
This comes to ultimate fulfillment in the person of Jesus entering humanity.
A (Application): Jesus is the light in our darkness. This is what Advent is about: expectant hope. We pray that Jesus – the Light of the World – come.
How are you showing a posture of hope this year?
P (Prayer): O come, o come, Emmanuel. Amen.
