Sunday Stillness Link – Man it’s dark
Have you ever woken up in a room in the country where there are no lights. I do that each night to use the washroom. I used to walk without any light by feeling my way. As I age I am thinking that isn’t too bright. Now I use a flashlight. It is small and I cover it with my hand so as to not wake up my sleeping hubby.
But dark is DARK. Unless there is a moon I can’t even see my hand.
In John 12:35 it says:
That really makes sense to me now. We need light to see where we are going.
Lately I have been reading scriptures about spiritual warfare. We are told to put on the suit of God’s protection. We are told to not fret, worry or be anxious but pray. We are told to trust in God – that the battle has all ready been won. Jesus is the conqueror. And the battle is the Lord’s.
The readings that have been on my mind are:
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
The words that stick out are: We have been given weapons to demolish strongholds, demolish arguments, We are to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:8
We need the armour of God in order to stand firm. We are covered head to foot (with a helmet of salvation, a belt of truth and feet in readiness – and carrying a shield of faith).
then I thought of 1 Samuel 17:47 (NASB):
and that all this assembly may know that the Lord does not deliver by sword or by spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will give you into our hands.
Lord, for those who are in the dark, I ask that you send Your Light to shine in to their lives. And I pray when we get into dark places we remember to turn on the light – right away. Help us to stay in the light – Your light. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.
