God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all

God is light and in Him is no darkness at all

“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”‭‭I John‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭NKJV

Over the next 31 days, I hope to present a reflection on the character of God. I will present one reflection for each day. Meditating on the nature, character, and ways of God builds and strengthens my faith.

God is Light! This makes me think that God is completely pure. God is available to all who want to know Him. God is totally good and there is no evil in Him.

When I think of light, I think of something that makes things visible but remains invisible! God is the one that makes all things exist but is Himself invisible.

The fact that I can see you proves to me that there is light. As the light bounces of you, I see you. When I see you, I know God has placed you in my life! You make me know that God is present. Of course, you are not God, but you are proof that God is light.

Darkness is the absence of Light! God is light! Whatever I do without God is darkness. All sort of negative things happen in dark places. We have much confidence when things are done in the light.

God is Light, everything done with God is in the light. There is no need to be ashamed when walking with God.

God is Light. He desires to be seen by all. I love walking with God because God is light. I have no fear because in the light you can see your enemies. I have confidence that with God I am secured.

God is light. He makes all the negatives in my life visible. When I draw close to God, my ungodly attitudes and thoughts become more visible for what they are. They look more ungodly and evil. I can no longer make excuses for them. I must call a lie a lie. I must call fear, fear. I must call pride by its real name pride.

God is light. There is no darkness in Him. I know God is in me. However, I see that when I am more aware of God, sin has no hold on me. As I draw near to God in my heart and my consciousness, sin becomes more disgusting to me. Pride becomes more terrible to me. When I get busy and disconnected, I find these sins becoming less terrible, then I know it’s time to go into the light.

White light is a combination of other lights. God is light. Some of us see Him in one way, others see Him another way. Depending on the lens you have on, you will see God in one way or the other. I desire to see God more clearly every day.

When John the apostle wanted to summarize their experience of Jesus, he said: “God is Light”. Our Lord Jesus came to reveal God to us. God is light and in Him, there is no darkness at all.


Oh God Almighty. I believe that you are light! Help me not to be afraid of your light. Shine on me oh God. I know your light will drive darkness from me. Oh Lord speak your light into every issue in my life. I want to have clarity in all that I do. Shine oh Lord in every dark area of our society, let evil flee at your presence.

When I find myself seeking to be someone, trying to be ahead of my neighbour, turning away from the tough way in your light, dear Lord, help me to come to your light and get back on track. I pray all this in Jesus name.
