Bible Verses to Memorize & Recite – Light

When You Need More Light in Your Life

by J.M. Troppello

If you need more light in your life, focus on God and not the struggles you are facing. Those words may seem glib. I know it’s not always easy to lay down your worries at the feet of God and trust Him to help you overcome that anxiety.

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” – Aristotle Onassis

Consider memorizing and reciting the following verses if you need more light in your life. Reading and memorizing the Bible can empower your life in significant ways.

1. God is Light

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)

There is no darkness in God. Seek His light daily. Hold on to that light in your heart.

2. Shining Light

But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18, NKJV)

God’s path for the righteous is like the shining sun.

3. Light of the World

“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” (John 9:5, NKJV)

Jesus is the Light of the world. Hold on to those simple yet profound words.

4. Light My Lamp

For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. (Psalm 18:28, NKJV)

God will light your lamp and brighten the darkness around you.

5. Light My Path

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105, NKJV)

God’s Word lights your path. Read, study, and apply the Word of God to your life.

Embrace God’s Word

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton

Grow your faith by reading God’s Word and applying it to your life. God is light. His path for the righteous shines like a bright sun. Jesus is the light of the world. He is the light in your lamp, and He will light your path daily—as you trust in Him.
