We have all looked out windows in the predawn or post sunset times and seen darkness – well, at least we have not seen light. Darkness. Can you imagine stumbling around to find one’s way in utter darkness? We need lights to see. Yard lights, flashlights, headlights, or other illumination devices all help us to find our way when we cannot see our way otherwise.
God cares about our being able to overcome darkness. He gave us light. “I form the light and make the dark.” (Isaiah 45:7) “When God began creating the heavens and the earth, the earth was a shapeless, chaotic mass, with the Spirit of God brooding over the dark vapors. Then God said, “Let there be light.” And light appeared. And God was pleased with it, and divided the light from the darkness. He called the light “daytime,” and the darkness “nighttime.” (Genesis 1)
Do you live in a chaotic emotional, spiritual, physical, financial, and/or relational mess? Please remember this at this Lenten Season: “I have come as a Light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer wander in the darkness.” John 12:46
Jesus was resurrected. He arose to victory so that we might have victory over sin, and death and hell. Things that are the darkest. He brought us resurrection LIGHT and LIFE. Maybe it is your moment to recognize that His Light can overcome any darkness you may be in.
