“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.”
John 14:16 NKJV

As Jesus was preparing for the end of His life, His disciples were understandably upset. With Jesus gone, who would guide them, teach them and make them feel better in times of trouble? The Lord eased His disciples’ fears by promising them the Holy Spirit, also called the Comforter, who would do for them in spirit what Jesus did for them in the flesh.

“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [19] And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:18-19 NKJV

When John used the phrase “believes in Him” it means more than just saying “Jesus is real.” This kind of belief includes committing your life to Christ and putting your trust in His salvation.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Matthew 7:21 NKJV

God did not create heaven as a club for people who say the right password. Many people think they can do a few good deeds and get into heaven. Their goal is to get into heaven by the skin of their teeth. They figure heaven is the reward for their efforts.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. [14] “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. [15] Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Matthew 5:13 – 15 NKJV

Is it a compliment to be called “salt”? How about “light”? It must be, since that’s what Jesus wants his followers to be.

“I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, And not forsake them.”
Isaiah 42:16 NKJV

God will turn the darkness into light. Have you ever been in a situation that felt dark? Maybe you didn’t know what to do next. Maybe you were scared, frustrated, anxious or angry. You know what….God was there with you. He uses the difficult situations in our own lives for our own good. God does turn the darkness into light. He also guides the blind “by ways they have not known.” We may not feel like we’re blind, but compared to what God sees, our sight is limited. If we will take His hand, He will guide us along paths that we didn’t even know existed.

Folks, God will never leave you or forsake you. He will calm the seas. He will make the rough places smooth. He will turn the darkness into light. All you have to do is accept that He can. All you have to do is trust Him.
