Week 1: Your word has given me light


Wale Oke

The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple (Psalm 119:130).
When the Word of God enters into someone’s heart, there is light. When the Word of God enters into a family, there is light. When the Word of God enters into a city, there is light. When the Word of God enters into a nation, there is light. Darkness is the absence of light. Darkness in any life, home, city or nation is simply the absence of the Word of the Lord. In whatever area where the Word of God is not clearly or sufficiently known, darkness reigns unchallenged. The best way to dispel darkness is to switch on the light. The way to deal with spiritual darkness of any kind, in any life, home, city or nation is to bring sufficient understanding of God’s Word in accurate proportion.

Light speaks of insight, understanding, wisdom, illumination and direction. No matter the challenges a man, a home, a city or a nation faces, there is enough information in the Word of God to deal with it; either immediately or over a period of time, as the case may be. But when there is ignorance of God’s Word, darkness reigns and the people are destroyed (Hosea 4:6).

Darkness speaks of ignorance, superstition, fear, sin, sickness, oppression, bondage, evil, witchcraft, poverty, suffering and shame. Anything that is of the devil is darkness, for he is the prince of darkness.


Beloved, do your best to fill your life with the Word of God and your life shall be full of light. Work hard to fill your home with the Word of God, and your home shall shine brightly. Let us labour to fill our cities, our nation, and our world with the true knowledge of the Word of God, and there shall be light. May the Word of the Lord prosper in your heart, in your home, in your city, in our nation and in our world.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:10-11).
