Suffering In Darkness as a Child of Light
As believers in Christ, saved from sin by the blood of the lamb, we are called to be children of light in the earth. We should not be as others who know not Christ. We are to know him, and in such a way shine like him in the earth. The bible tells us that we were once in darkness (before we came to follow Jesus and know his truth) but are now children of the light. We have been called out of darkness into light! Therefore if you are suffering in a dark place in life today I call you OUT in Jesus name!!
When one is walking in darkness, they have no sight, no insight and cannot see where they are currently or where they are going from there. It's easy to be drowned in darkness, but today I encourage you to lift up your head oh ye gates and be ye lifted up and the king of glory shall come in!
You see, two things can happen to you within a dark place...
Which one will YOU choose? It may seem easier to give up and remain defeated, but NO. You can do this because it's in Christ that we have the victory. I've learned through the years that when we are in the midst of a storm it is nearly impossible to see yourself on the other side of it. It's very difficult to see and believe that this too will pass. God has always and will always carry you through, even through the darkest moments in your life. Is there anything to hard for God? Absolutely not!
It's within the dark places of our lives that God reminds us that we are not capable alone to sustain ourselves. We need God, we cannot lose sight of this very thing. It's when we lose sight of Jesus and his ability that we fail. Just as Peter did when faced with a storm and called to walk on water. Jesus is our hope and should always be our focus. This is why we are told in scripture that he will us in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on him. There is an absence of peace when we focus on all the other things happening around us and even to us sometimes. God is like, if you would just stay focused on what I said, my very word will carry you through to the other side of this storm and will do so while keeping us in perfect peace.
Keep your eyes on Jesus today precious mom and go forth in his power and in his might! You have been called OUT of darkness and so we declare that though you may be down and hurting you will NOT stay there. I submit to you this, cry if you must and then SHIFT!! Come up and come out NOW in Jesus name!!!
