The Light That Failed

WHAT wonderful ways can God use to bless and refresh His weary ones! Who would ever dream of the flaring advertisement of a play upon the hoarding being employed as a messenger of God! Yet one, who had suffered sore bereavement caught sight of these words, and blessed God for the light that NEVER fails. Earthly light, be it health or the joy of friends, or the love of husband or wife or parent or child, will fail, but the Christian has a portion that never faileth.
Saul of Tarsus was converted by that "light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun," controlled by it, comforted by it and he found it indeed the light that never failed. It is in hours of deepest darkness that it shines with its brightest and most inward light in our hearts. "The path of the just shineth more and more unto the perfect day." Oh! for more of that blessed shining.
