for. The world presents all of us with a false light, disguising what is harmful for us as a "good", and making sin attractive. This light never lasts because it's not real. The world can be a confusing place, but when we follow Jesus and allow His Light to shine on our lives - everything changes!! Life becomes
bright and the Love of God is suddenly revealed. The world's "light" leads us away. God's Light shows us the way. God's Light shines on our goodness and makes all things clearer.This clarity refreshes our souls.The Darkness hates the Light because the Light is more powerful. Let's reject all that does not lead us to the Light of Christ.
I once heard this topic explained this way - picture a dark room, how do you get rid of the darkness in the room? How do you make the darkness go away? Do you struggle with your own effort to get it out - no - you simply turn the light on - and the darkness automatically leaves. Light cancels out darkness. The
same is true in our lives.Jesus is the Light of our Lives, when we let Him into the dark areas of our hearts and minds, the darkness has no choice but to leave, and Healing occurs. Christ is more powerful. Plain and simple. Do not be deceived.Christ, is more powerful.Light is a stronger force.What a wonderful analogy to the power of God.No wonder Jesus used this example so much :) Let's turn to Jesus, now, today, in a New Way. When life is overwhelming and we are struggling and it feels like darkness is all
around - turn on THE Light!
Here are just a few scriptures on Light!
"Jesus spoke to them again, saying, 'I am the light of the world.Whoever follows me will not walk
in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.He was in the beginning with God.All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing came to be.What came to be through Him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."(John 1:1-5)
"For you were once in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.Live as children of light, for
light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and Truth.Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.Take no part in the fruitless works of darkness;rather expose them, for it is shameful even to mention the things done by them in secret; but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for everything that becomes visible is light.Therefore, it says: 'Awake, O Sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light." (Ephesians 5:8-14)
"No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light... " (Luke 8:16-17)
"Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path." (Psalm 119:105)
"And do this because you know the time; it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep.For our
salvation is nearer now than when we first believed; the night is advanced, the day is at hand. Let us then throw off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light;" (Romans 13:11--12)
"The Lord shall be your light forever." (Isaiah 60:20)
"Rise up in splendor! Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines upon you." (Isaiah 60:1)
"Then God said, 'Let there be light', and there was light.God saw how good the light was.God
then separated the light from the darkness..." (Genesis 1:3-4)
I could go on and on.... there are soooo many scriptures portraying God as Light. I've only chosen
a handful. But it's important to reflect on God's Word - and watch our lives become a lot brighter!! Let's remember that Light is ALWAYS more powerful!! Never lose hope.Never get discouraged. We have the Light of Love showing us the way. God Loves us. He can and will set us free from the darkness in our lives. It's what He does. Turn to Jesus, Trust in Jesus and Be a light in someone's life in NEW WAY... TODAY!
