Dear Jesus, I so long to walk in the way of Peace, and I believe that You are the only Way.
I ask that Your Light may shine upon me more and more. I continually need the Light of Your Presence, because I live in a cold, dark world. I desire Your radiant Presence not only for warmth but also for guidance. Please lead me along the path of Peace.
Beloved, My Presence radiates Light that helps you find the way of Peace. My Word enlightens your mind and heart, empowering you to stay on the right path. As you read Scripture, look for a star of guidance. Ask My Spirit to illumine those words to your seeking heart. They are words of Life!
Remember that I am your Shepherd. To walk in the way of Peace, you must follow Me wholeheartedly. If you drift even slightly from following My lead, you are at risk. For a while you will still be able to see Me, as you go your own way “just a bit.” Eventually, however, you will lose sight of Me altogether. Veering even a few degrees off course will ultimately take you far from Me. With your feet no longer on the path of Peace, you will find yourself becoming increasingly anxious. The most important thing at this point is to realize you have lost your way. If you are humble enough, you can call out to Me for help. I am near to all who call on Me. I will hear your cry and save you, leading you back to the way of Peace.
A Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit [us] to shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace.
~ Luke 1:78–79
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
~ John 14:6
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
~ Psalm 119:105
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
~ Psalm 145:18–19
