Day 150- Richmond, Virginia: Out of the Dark and Into the Light
It is said that nothing good happens at night, is that true? When the light fades away and the darkness surrounds us, does that truly mean that the light is gone or does it mean that we are just unaware of the lights presence in the dark? The Lord is with us always and He provides the light that exists even in the darkest storm around us. The Light from God shines so bright that you can see it from a continent away. Do we choose to “see” the light or do we choose to ignore the presence of God in various situations that we encounter?
We must find a way to not only see the light in the darkness, but also trust God to leads us towards the Promised Land. We may have obstacles that prohibit our ability to see things clearly, but with the help of God there are no barriers that He cannot handle on our behalf, as long as we have the faith of a mustard seed. Our faith is the most important aspect of what we believe in and what we stand for, because without faith in the darkness we will not only be blind but also we will be unable to find our way home.
This is why we must live in the Light of Christ, as we rebuke the ways of satan and those who attempt to seize the “Light from God” from within our hearts, mind, body, and soul. The Apostle Luke speaks about the “Lamp of the Body” in his Gospel: “Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays”. We are full of light and we must not allow the darkness to creep into our lives, as we are constantly praying for mercy and forgiveness. God is fully aware of the work of the devil and his desires to lure us away from the Cross. It is up to us to rely on God in these critical moments, and how we respond will dictate the peace that we will have in our hearts. God is the Alpha and the Omega. There is no amount of darkness that can overshadow the Light that shines from the Holy Spirit within us, as it projects out into the world.
