Scripture: Psalms 18:28 (Living Bible) "You have turned on my light! The Lord my God has made my darkness turn to light."
of darkness come into all of our lives at some point. It may
come through grief, disappointment, lack of direction, or any number of
other situations. We have all had times when itseemed like
we were under a cloud or walking in darkness. We just
slowly grope around with no sense of direction, not knowing whether to
go to the left or to the right. We stretch forth our spiritual
arms hoping to feel for something that is familiar, but we end up
stumbling over things and often injure ourselves in the process.
These times are frustrating and fearful in the natural as well as in
our spiritual life, especially if we find ourselves in a new place
where everything is unfamiliar.
David was facing a dark season
just like this, but God turned David's darkness into light.
God came into his darkness and simply turned the light on. The
Lord showed David the way out of the situation, delivered him from his
enemies, and gave him victory. Your circumstances are no greater
than David's. Just as God rescued David, He is able to
intervene in the midst of your situation, turn His light on, and
give you direction. God is your deliverance and your light,
and His light has a way of driving out all darkness. Like
natural light, His light provides comfort and shows clear direction.
does not have the ability to overcome or put out the light. Light
is very powerful. The difference that one small light or candle
can make in a room full of darkness is amazing. One small and
seemingly insignificant light, like a flashlight or match, can be the
means that will help you get to the main power source that can produce
more light for your situation. In your darkest hour, you may only
see a small glimmer of light. Perhaps that light is a
scripture, a song, a message, or a friend with a good word.
It may not seem like much at first, but if you will receive it, that
small light will get you to the main power supply. As you
reach towards God, He will turn the light on in your situation
and drive out all of the darkness and confusion that is in
your life. +++
