Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Wednesday to you all! I sure hope that your day is going well…and I pray that you will ALWAYS know in your heart that God is ALWAYS there for you…no matter what…Amen!!
As we begin our time together today, let me ask you a question…"Are you afraid of the dark…the darkness of this evil world?" It seems like lately, we are seeing more signs of an evil form of darkness that is attempting to take over this world around us…an evil that is only waxing worse with time.
The other day, while spending time alone with God; He began to show me that the only reason why we fear the darkness of this evil world; is because we are too caught up in the darkness…to the place where we have become a part of it. In other words…when we find ourselves focusing on the news and events that are taking place in this world…in an excessive way; then we can easily find ourselves drawn into them, which from there only leads us to a fear of what we see before us. What we need to remember most of all; is to have our minds and our whole self in the light of God's presence, where we can experience hope, rather than what comes out of all the evil in this world. Think of it this way…when we are heart to heart with God…surrounded by the light of His presence; then like John 1:5 says…"The light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not."…for God's whole being alone becomes that light that keeps us encircled with Him…where no dark moment can extinguish the light of His presence and overtake us.
Many times, I think that we allow ourselves to become caught up in these moments of darkness…to the place where it eventually draws us even deeper into darkness…a darkness that can remove peace from within us and replace that peace we once had with fear. In John 8:12, we read… "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." In other words…when we choose to follow God's ways…the ways that can keep us closely connected with Him; then we won't find ourselves fearfully stumbling through the darkness of this evil world; for a living light…God's light, will always flood our path, so we can continue to press on in peace.
Today, if you are struggling with all that is happening around you in this world, may I encourage you to get alone with God…for when you do; that is when darkness will be pushed back, by a powerful light that can illuminate all forms of darkness.
We must remember each day; that what we choose to follow after, will either lead us into the dark moments of this world…or the light of a presence that can help, sustain and bring peace to us, until these times have reached their end. Yes…we will experience moments that will make the path seem so dark before us…and this darkness may even attempt to make us stumble; but when we get into God's word and share our hearts with His heart; that is when we will once more be drawn into the light of His presence…a light that will cause us to no longer fear the darkness of this evil world…Amen!
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS remember to remain in the light of God's presence!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
