Sometimes, we make so much mistakes and commit so much things that we start to see ourselves as terrible people. We feel that we’ve done so much wrong and so irrevocably damaged that there is no turning back. When we look into the mirror, we see so much evil that you need to be saved from yourself. And, when you look around, all you see is darkness and you don’t know who to reach out to either.
The thing is, we are created in God’s image and we are actually innately good people. However, sometimes, in the dark, we get lost and unsure of what to do. As such, it becomes easier for us to give in to temptations and succumb to evil. It does not mean we are bad people, just good people in the shadow of darkness. But, instead of letting the vicious cycle continue, pause for a while. We need to realise, darkness is not the opposite of brightness; Darkness is the absence of light.
So, if we do not want to be in the dark anymore, we should turn on the light to cast out all the darkness. Indeed, this can easily be done by surrendering it all up to God and strengthening our relationship with him. He is our light and salvation.
It is God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ that has shone into our hearts to enlighten them with the knowledge of God’s glory, the glory on the face of Christ. – 2 Corinthians 4:6
I know it can’t be easily be done. We have to accept that we need help. We have to let go of who we used to be and allow Him to mould us into a new person. But, if we want to get out of the dark, the only way is to let the source our light shine through. And what better source than He who created light himself.
Indeed, He, as the Holy Spirit, is within each and everyone of us. If we allow Him, His power in us is greater than any force that comes against us. If you’ve allowed the enemy to hide you in the dark, today you can be free. Meditate on His promises and renew your faith in God. Conquer the darkness by making the choice to turn on the light.
