And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun;
for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Commentary from 365 Promises

We live in a world that is full of darkness. Wars, rumors of wars, heartache and loss seem to abound all around us. If we focus on the darkness though, we may get discouraged. However, the Bible says in Ephesians 5:8 that we do not live in darkness, but are called to live as children of light, living in the light of the Lord.

Today's Scripture focuses on the promise of eternal life and that one day, all darkness will cease. My prayer today is that you and I would be strengthened and encouraged with this thought. Though we need to still grapple with injustice and darkness in this fallen world, there is a time coming when there will be no need of the light of a candle or the brightness of the sun to drive out the darkness.

Today's promise is that God Himself will be the light in His everlasting Kingdom and that we will rule and reign with Him in the brightness of His glory forever! May hope rise up in our hearts as we reminded that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all!  (1 John 1:5)
