But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. Proverbs 4:19
When we have been in darkness for so long our eyes conform to it. When we are shown the light it can be a blinding experience. A normal reaction is to reject it, to put your hands up in defense and shy away from it. Even when the dark is a place full of failure, it’s familiar. It becomes a lair of half truth, creating a false sense of pleasure. It’s deceiving and while we are feeling our way around, we end up creating our own image of what the truth looks like. We truly do not know what makes us stumble. Until it’s exposed.
When we begin to step out of our past and allow God’s light to shine within our life, it’s not always the most comfortable experience. It’s not always easy to accept. We find that the coping mechanism we used while dwelling in the dark, are no longer useful in the Light.
When we have gotten comfortable with our half truths and believed them, they fight and try to hang on. They try to pull us back and talk us into justifying them. It is hard to come terms with our misunderstanding. It’s difficult to admit that what we once knew and previously followed, goes against the very Hand That Heals us.
Here is where the hope comes in,
Whether this is something you or a loved one is struggling through,
Hang In There! Don’t Give Up!
God is Light and In Him there is No darkness AT ALL!
Jesus Is The Way, The Truth and The Life
The Light Of Life!
He is the Alpha and the Omega!
When He Starts He Finishes!!!
John 1:5 says
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
When God’s word is revealed, we can either experience it as a RESCUE or a bust. That will take a little self check. If we are feeling defensive we can ask ourselves, why am I feeling offended to this exposure? No one likes to admit that they are wrong. So ask Him! Lord, what is making me cover my eyes? God help me to push any pride aside, drop my hands, help my heart to reflect your humbleness.
When Jesus revealed himself to Saul on the road to Damascus, he was blinded for 3 days. Goodness it’s no wonder, look at the darkness that Saul came from. Oh, but once the scales fell from His eyes, God used Him for Victory!
JESUS is All about the Saul to Paul Moment! He will bring this forth.
It may be bright and blinding at first but God’s light leaves no crack or crevice unturned. The dark doesn’t like the exposure so there Will be a bit of a battle.
The question is, how long will we fight?
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible–and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.
When His Light is shown His Love flows, it reaches the eyes of the heart. It shows Truth In A Way that only Christ Can.
2Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
He is the Light that shines in the world! His Light Transforms The Mind and The Heart! It literally Gives Life!
Open The Shades and let Him In!
Then Shine that Light on a friend!
