Light Divine

God has graciously made the path of His will known for all His saints; others have made difficulties, and talk and write of the surrounding darkness as Newman did when about to go over to Rome, “Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom.” J.N.Darby wrote the truth, “Light divine surrounds thy going.” There are difficulties, for the Scriptures recognize these as “perilous times,” but the saints are in the light, however feebly they apprehend it; and the truth is given to enable them to meet the difficult times. “The true light now shines” (1 John 2:8). Difficulties do not make the day dark; they should stimulate those who are “in the light” to overcome them in faith.
