Light vs Darkness

Genesis 1:2-5
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep” – This is exactly what the world is facing right now. Darkness is everywhere; corruption, perverseness, inordinate affection and lust as never known before is the order of the day. Sin and darkness plagues every facet of human existence. Molestations, cruel abuses and breach of trust, dishonesty and lies, wars and WMD unleashed, terrorism and suicide bombings on every soil. Humanity is on the brink of anarchy.

“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”– Amidst all these, God is still there. His seemingly silence does not mean acceptance but rather “patience not willing that any should perish but that all should coume to repentance.” The Spirit of God is watching, to see what believers will do. Watching to see who will go on their knees and intercede for the nations till revival comes.

“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light”.- God dispelled the darkness by speaking forth. His Word was the answer and is the answer to the darkness we face today. His Word, His Son (John 1:1-2). Jesus is the answer for the world, the only Way that darkness and flee from our lives and all that pertains to us. He is the Light of this world. The only way, the only solution to all these headaches and heartaches we face is Jesus. When we invite and allow Him to take lead us day by day through His word, then darkness surely will flee.

“And God saw the light, that it was good:” -God saw the Light was good. Light is always good. Jesus is the true epitome of Light for He is light and in Him dwells no darkness at all. Hence he will surely be good. He only does and makes things good. No matter how the world in its perverseness tries to portray Him, He is still good. That is His nature, and when we follow in His footsteps, goodness flows through us like a river. If all the world follows Him, darkness and evil will disappear for good will surely triumph.

“And God divided the light from the darkness” – God divided the two because there’s no friendship, no connection, no relationship between light and darkness, between God and Satan. You either have one or the other. Both cannot exist in your life. You cannot serve both God the Light and Satan the father of darkness. At each point, one is always your Master. Trying to have both is to deceive ourselves. So let us as children of the Light live according to our profession.

“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night– Note the capital letters. These are not just times of the day, they are personalities one must not trivial with. Jesus is the Light, the Day and Satan is the Darkness, the Night. We must reckon with this and be careful how we live our lifes, be careful who we obey and heed to. We are either servants to the Light or slaves to the Darkness, the choice is ours.

Who rules your life, who you obey is who your master is. May we be in word, in truth and in deed children of the Light; for the world will become a better place when all mankind submit their lifes and their hearts to the Light, to Christ.

Darkness

Darkness

Darkness creeps in like a thief
Subtle, sneaky like a snake
Luring gullible minds away from the light
Blinded and lost in a deep dark world
They grope about like three blind mice

But lo, the cry of a Saviour they hear
Embrace His light to free your minds
His light shines clear for you to thrive
Your sight he restores in a flick of a wave
Bid farewell to darkness and welcome The Light

Footsteps in the Dark #3

After some safe distance on the road, she glanced behind again and was assured to know she wasn’t followed even though the sheer thought of walking down a lonely road in the dark etched some growing concerns in the corners of her mind.

Her running now reduced to a walk she thought- “Where am l?, What am I doing here?” Her recollections was of no help. She purposely glanced around her as if in search of anything familiar but nothing made sense to her. She was faced with a stretch of an isolated road marked with long trees and heavily lowly branches along the sides. And that constant howling of the wind didn’t help soothe her fears.

If only she could find some shelter to rest her aching feet, but unfortunately none seemed in sight. About 10 minutes later even though it seemed like eternity to her, she heard the sound of a car approaching behind her. She looked behind and saw the flashlights getting nearer. Contemplating whether to wave or not, but compelled by hunger for food, thirst for water, and some form of shelter for her fatigued body, she couldn’t resist waving the car down.

The car stopped beside her, a man was driving with an older lady at the back. “Please can I get ride to the nearest gas station or grocery store? She asked them. “Oh definitely darling, hop in” replied the woman smiling at her. The lady seemed nice but what if they knew the dark figure in the forest? What if they are his accomplices? Can she trust them? Countless valid questions but her mind was too tired to process them. She will take her chances and with that she closed the door as she went inside the car, hence not spotting that hint of a split-second mischievous grin on the driver’s face.
