The Light

We have a security light on Danny’s shop out back. It is probably the brightest security light I’ve ever seen. So bright in fact that when something trips the light our bedroom is flooded with light. At first it concerned me because I wondered what on earth was out there? It’s so bright you cannot see anything when you look out. Now I just know that when the light is tripped our place is flooded with light and that’s a real comfort.

Oh beloved, whenever you need protection, God is the Light. Whenever you need to see into the darkness of your situation it is the Light of the Word that illuminates everything. When the enemy slinks around and attempts to steal from you, Light will flood your entire circumstances. This Light of the Lord is different than the simple system outside your house. God’s Light illuminates everything. No danger exists that God won’t shine His light on. And when God’s light shines the perpetrator of that darkness has to flee.

What does God say about His light? You are more than just a bystander to God’s Light. You are a Light bearer yourself! You carry about with you the Light of Jesus, who overcame everything so that you could live in this Light. Every Word of God is a light for your life! He keeps you safe now and redirects you when you stray from His path. Your life is not full of darkness, even when things are hard to understand. Your life is not hard to navigate even when you can’t see the way through the circumstances. You aren’t a victim of your surroundings. You aren’t a pawn in this world just hoping to grope through the darkness until heaven. No you are full of Light and you have the authority to walk in the Light, to operate the Light and to live in it 24/7!

God loves you and He’s for you. Run to Him this morning and talk to Him about the darkness you feel. Allow Him to give you His peace for your security. Allow Him to redirect you if there’s any way of darkness trying to overtake your personal life. And rejoice that your destiny is to show the Light of the Lord everywhere you go! And live in that light beloved, and rest in His promises and refuse to fear anything as you walk with Jesus, who is The Light, all the days and nights of your life.
