Again, therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.Isaiah 60:1 He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 WEB
Sometimes we look around and wonder what is going on, I do. The confusion, all the things that make us stop and shake our heads are being praised as being good. Attacks on our children, our families, and values.
It seems like the more offensive it is the greater it is being praised. Crime is up all over the world. There are leaders that are only looking out for their own interests and not that of the people they are in charge of. There are wars and rumors of wars. It seems to be coming from all sides:
- Our Children
- Natural Disasters
- Energy Shortages
- The Economy
This has all been prophesied throughout the Bible the surest and only way to navigate through every thing that is going on is to follow the map we have been given, the Bible. We have Jesus’ words and the Holy Spirit as our personal guides.
That was a little of my commentary but this is what the bible says (God’s words)
He’s Got This
Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings. But may the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 1 Peter 5:9-10 WEB
He Chose You
For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Whom he predestined, those he also called. Whom he called, those he also justified. Whom he justified, those he also glorified. Romans 8:27-30 WEB
God is Faithful
No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 WEB
Your Not of This World
You put away, as concerning your former way of life, the old man that grows corrupt after the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man, who in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of truth. Ephesians 4:22-24 WEB
His Light is Becoming Brighter
Beloved, don’t believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit who doesn’t confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God, and this is the spirit of the Antichrist, of whom you have heard that it comes. Now it is in the world already. 1 John 4:1-3 WEB
How to Fight the Dark
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God,
that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood,
but against the principalities,
against the powers,
against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age,
and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist,
and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace,
above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit,
and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints Ephesians 6:10-18 WEB
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for guiding my footsteps when life has seemed its darkest You have always carried me through. Making sure that my feet have landed where they should. I am sorry for the times I have doubted You but still you have kept on the path. In Jesus Name Amen
