Light Dispels Darkness

When you are facing unusually difficult situations, you are not just dealing with what you can see in the natural. There are forces of Darkness behind to hinder you to fulfill your destiny and purpose in God.  What you are facing is a strong spiritual resistance and you need to stand in prayers and faith in the word of God.

We need to stand firm on the Rock of Jesus Christ, to be steadfast, be immovable, to resist the devil and he will flee from us (Jas 4:7). It is time to fight and not flight, and push back the kingdom of darkness.

God is light and as He dwells within us, the light of Christ in us shall dispel the darkness. A good picture here to illustrate and understand is this. When a room is in the dark and you switch on the light, the light will immediately overtake and dispel away the darkness. There is literally nothing else you can do to chase away darkness. You cannot use a rod to chase it away. You cannot shout at it to chase it away. You can only bring the light in and the darkness will depart.

What is true in the natural is true in the spiritual. The light of Christ will dispel the darkness in our life and in our situations. But it is not solely dependent on God. God requires us to play an important and active role.

He requires us to walk in the light as He is in the light. Darkness and light do not co-exist. Walking in the light means we need to put away wilful sin. We need to make a decision to live a life of pursuing God and His Holiness. Even as we love God, we need to have the reverence and fear of God to keep our hearts and motives right.

Therefore, make a decision today to pursue a life of Holiness, pleasing to God and not unto men. And as you walk in the light as He is in the light, the blood of Jesus will cleanse you (1 John 1:7) from all sins. And as the light of Christ in you shines forth, you will overcome the forces of darkness and conquer your challenges!

Psalms 18:28‭-‬30 NKJV
For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, By my God I can leap over a wall. As  for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

2 Corinthians 4:6‭-‬7 NKJV
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

Psalms 36:9 NKJV
For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.


Dear God, I thank You that there is hope in Your Word and that You will enlighten my darkness. I pray that the light of Christ will come in to dispel the darkness in my life. I pray that my faith in God will arise and my fears will depart from me. Teach me Your ways and guide me so that I can live a life of holiness, seeking to please You and not to please men. I will stand fast in faith and trust in You that You will make all things work together for my good and I will walk in Your light each day. The kingdom of God shall prevail and let Your will be done in my life. Amen. 

God bless,
