This verse speaks not only of the blessedness of walking in His presence, but specifically the light of His presence. The light of His presence will illuminate our way and expose all the darkness within, so that it has no place to hide. It reminds me of the Scripture that says, "If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin." (1Jn 1:6-7)
Let's walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light. Then we will have fellowship with Him and one another, and the blood of Jesus will cleanse us from all sin. I ask the Lord for the light of His presence to shine in every corridor of my heart at all times. I hope you do, too.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
