“Nevertheless, for the sake of his servant David, the Lord was not willing to destroy Judah. He had promised to maintain a lamp for David and his descendants forever” (2 Kings 8:19).
A lamp that shines brightly! – Even in times of great darkness,the lamp of the Lord continues to shine: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path” (Psalm 119:105); ‘When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”’ (John 8:12).
