On this day that is celebrated by many in darkness and that is perversely celebratory of death, fear and gore, I want to celebrate Life, Hope and Light. His name is Jesus. He is the great I AM. He is all we need, and as things on Earth become even darker His Light, through us, will shine all the more.
- Isaiah 60:2 (Whole Chapter)
Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth,but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.
On this day that recognizes darkness, we should be all the more aware that we are the Light of the World. We are ambassadors of the Kingdom of God and are only here to bring His Kingdom and His will on Earth as it is in Heaven. There is no room for compromise and no time to waste. There are those in darkness that are waiting for the light of His love through you and me.
This is a day that we should ask the Lord to reveal any darkness in our own lives, so that His love and power can flow through us unhindered. As believers, we have a unique opportunity every time darkness tries to press in. We have the opportunity through our worship, prayers, and the life we live to blow holes in the darkness and bring down the plans of the enemy. So take advantage of this day. Take advantage of every opportunity to shine the Light of God into dark situations, whether they be personal struggles or the darkness in the world. We have the living God dwelling within us and because of His life in us we can make a huge impact on the world around us! Praise to our God, the one true and living God! May His name be glorified every day for who He is and all that he has done!
