God IS Light.
God doesn't just have light or bring light, but His essence is light, so when you invite God into your space, you eliminate the power and presence of darkness in your life! Imagine trying to reach a destination in a dark rural area where there are no lights. It's hard to know direction without light. It's hard to find the right path without light. You would not see the danger that exists around you without light.
Thats how life is without God. It's like trying to reach a destination the dark. Your destiny is depending on you to light the path with the presence of God in your life! Ask yourself this question: Am I trying to reach my destiny without faithfully inviting God's presence in my life?
5 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. 6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:5-10 ESV)
God IS Life!
Everyone faces challenges and pitfalls that bring about a sense of death in life, whether it be spiritual, financial, emotional, or in any other way. Faith in God introduces the potential for the dead things in our lives to live again! Even in scripture, careful consideration of the language used to describe the resurrection of Jesus shows that Jesus did not just get up, God raised Him up!! To that end, the power of God within us can quicken the deadness that we experience and cause us to know LIFE in a new and refreshing way!
“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.” (Romans 8:11 ESV)
It's so common for us to try to illuminate our lives with random sources of pseudo-light, like popularity or our accomplishments, and to accept the dying parts of our lives and live in the funk of death. But there are no worldy answers to darkness and deadness. Only God can bring light to your darkness, and life to your deadness.
I encourage you not to settle for a dark, dead life! God has more for you than that!
