John 12:46 “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”


Jesus Christ always spoke about light. We know how important light is for us. He says if we believe on Him, we shall not abide in darkness. But it is our experience that we sometimes abide in darkness. Why? ... because of lack of prayer. Cars have very bright lights to enable them to travel fast. Jutkas do not have such lights because they do not travel so fast. In spiritual life if we want to travel fast, we need much prayer. We are made of three parts - the spirit, soul and body. Our prayer is hardly sufficient for our soul. It does not inspire the spirit. Some of us are sick because our prayer does not throw light on the condition of the body. If we had sufficient prayer God would teach us how to keep our bodies healthy and warn us of approaching sickness, or tell us the hindrance to our healing.

Our wills are stubborn and our prayer does not throw light on our misguided wills. You should not be in darkness about God's will. 'He that believeth on me shall not walk in darkness.' God's will must be very definite and you must be prepared to walk in it. Only if you reach a certain level in prayer, God's will can be revealed to you. If it is revealed prematurely it is dangerous for you, because you cannot obey and even if you obey you will fall away shortly afterwards. We must patiently wait to know God's will. As we are in prayer, God's will is gradually revealed to us. You are flashing spiritual light into the unknown. The flash of light on the meandering path before you is very important. With insufficient prayer, people are easily dragged into the world. Jesus was successful because He always had sufficient prayer, and knew God's will and always did it. Blessed is the man who hath knowledge of God's perfect will. You must have sufficient study of the Bible. The extent of revelation of God's will is limited by your knowledge of God's Word. The will of God will conform to His Word. As you pray on, your spirit is inspired to obey. The Holy Spirit so adjusts things that the time of the revelation coincides with that of your preparedness. You need not walk in darkness. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread God will give you.
