It’s Right There…

  • Sometimes we see a pile of shoes, when we should see souls.
  • Sometimes we see the “bother” when we should see the opportunity.
  • Sometimes we see the person in the mirror, when we should see Christ.
  • Sometimes we see the “I don’ts, when the blessings are staring right at us.
  • Sometimes we see the “can’ts, when the cans are plenteous.
  • Sometimes we see bondage, when we are free in Christ.
  • Sometimes God’s knocking at our hearts door brings us irritation, when it should comfort and bring peace.

Sometimes…

Sometimes, if we are not careful, what we “see” becomes skewed, off-focused, self-absorbed, blurred, tainted by our own sinfulness; we are unaware our vision is tainted or changed.

I like to call it our “gridwork” –what we see through our circumstances. When our personal gridwork of life or vision is skewed, our choices follow suit because Christ is not at the helm.

  • Life happens, but Christ is bigger; Christ is purposeful.

When we float through life and refuse to biblically respond, we live through are own “gridwork” and not Christ’s.

Until we fully surrender ourself to Christ, it will not matter if you “see” it or not, if you believe me, your Pastor, your godly friend or not; you, my friend, live in its denial.

We are freed only in Christ (John 8:31-32). It is possible!

the Light

Darkness loves darkness. Darkness feeds on darkness. It’s a fact. Shine any light, or truth on darkness (that would include a person living in a dark-filled life) and that darkness squirms in discomfort. Darkness hates the truth, it hates to be revealed (that’s why it loves darkness to cloak it’s real purpose); sin hates light. Darkness is a user.

  • That “Light” is Jesus Christ.
  • That “Truth” is God’s Word.

Shine any light source in a dark place, lite a candlestick in a dark room, use the moon to guide you out at sea, turn on a flashlight in the middle of a dark forest and you will see…the Truth (God’s Word) will set you free…you will see (John 8:31-32).

Darkness does not understand the Light, it will reject the Light when revealed, darkness even displays itself as light but claims you once discovered, but the Light is not overpowered by the darkness, the Light is not absorb by the darkness, the Light is not unreceptive to the darkness…the Light shines! For with the Light all may see if they believe in Him, Jesus Christ.

Remember who we said the Light is, Jesus Christ.

  • Do you know who the source of darkness is? Satan, or the devil (same thing). He has great influence upon this world which causes “darkness” in the lives of people. Satan is not your friend. The sin he says will bring you happiness (2 Corinthians 11:14) will be your destruction, because he seeks to destroy (1 Peter 5:8), not save you (Luke 19:10) like the Light does (Jesus Christ). Satan’s day will end, so will darkness. The Light’s day will never end.

You may be living in darkness, you may feel as though your life is dark or there is no way out, you may be consumed by a certain sin, or find yourself filled with guilt or depression…look to the Light! To live in the Light is to truly live (John 10:10).

The darkness only has power over you when you give it power; it doesn’t need to consume or destroy you.

  • Allow the Light (Jesus Christ) to come into your life and give you life. If you have more question click here.
