With all the bad news and evil that surround us in this modern Babylon, I perceived a still small voice from the Lord in my Bible study this morning in John 1.

Jn 1:3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4 in him was life,[a] and the life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

The message that struck me in verse 5 is that God has it all under control; that light overcomes darkness; encouraging words in these troubled times.
