It is an uncomfortable feeling to stumble around in the dark especially in unfamiliar areas. It is so much better to walk in the light. You have less of a chance of getting hurt as opposed to finding your way through the dark at the risk of getting hurt. In the spiritual realm this same methodology applies. If we are enlightened by the word of God we are much less likely to getting hurt. When we are not, we stumble. We fall. We get hurt. Use Gods word to keep "the light on. Ephesians 1:18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.
