The Light that overcomes darkness

"...we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us - that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete. This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all." 

- 1 John 1:2-5

God is light. If God is light then HE shines, He is pure, He is holy, whithout blemish, He is what cast out the darkness, He is what cast out fear. Many times when we find ourselves in darkness, fear creeps in and alters our reality. Lies become what we believe instead of truth. But in these verses we see that God is truth, He is the light that cast out fear, that gives light to the darkness, that overcomes the darkness. In Him there is not darkness at all. There is no wrong, there is no impurity, there are no flaws in God, HE is perfect. And if HE is perfect then HIS ways are perfect, sure, faithful, true, and trustworthy. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I can trust the sturdiness of a seat when I see that it seems to be perfectly made, or the assurance of a car or plan to get me from one place to the next when it looks and feels like it works properly. If I can trust in these man made objects, I must resolve to recline into the arms of my trustworthy Savoir in every area of my life. HE is perfect, HE is sure, HE is righteous, HE is without spot or wrinkle, He is the light that overcomes darkness, HE is God.

My prayer for you as you read this is simply that you would pray that your trust would be increased and produce in you faith that is unwaivering. I not only pray this for you, but for myself as well.


Nothin' but love,
