Light and Love.
Two beautiful words. Light and Love. Two of my favorite words. I enjoy meditating on these two words.
Without Jesus, we would not have Love in our world.
That is a thought that I struggle to wrap my mind around. A world without love.
Without Jesus, we would not have Light in our world.
Darkness. Total complete darkness would engulf us. Those dark thoughts would take over. Those dark corners in our minds would take dominance.
That scares me greatly to think of a world without Jesus.
But there is no reason to fear because both the Light and the Love are attainable for all. Jesus Christ came to be our Savior. He did the unthinkable. He suffered extreme pain, shame and humiliation for each of us to have an endless supply of Light and Love.
Light and Love that will never be extinguished.
It would be so very easy to allow those dark moments, those dark thoughts to take dominance in my life. However, Jesus won’t allow that to happen because He gave me the precious Holy Spirit to dwell in me until He returns.
Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
And that same sweet Spirit can dwell in you as well.
I can tell you from experience, when I start my own internal pity party for one, I immediately feel like someone is grabbing me by the shoulders and shaking me saying, “Stop it! Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You have so many blessings. Stop allowing the enemy to enter in where there is no room available.”
It’s amazing, just as quickly as the dark thoughts enter my mind, the Light takes over and makes them leave.
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness.
The fight between good and evil goes on inside of me and it also goes on inside of you.
This fight goes on inside of every single human being who has ever lived and who will ever live. The only way to fight this battle is to have the Spirit fight it for you. Stand back and just let it all play out. When the dust settles, you’ll be amazed time after time who comes out the victor.
We will always win. We will never be left alone to fight this fight of darkness. Never left alone. Never forgotten. Never forsaken. Get into the Word today and see how it can change and impact your entire life.
This is my prayer for everyone – that the Light and the Love take over the darkness and evil.
Dear God, Please keep each of us in the Light and the Love that is Your Son Jesus Christ. For we know that there is no other way. He is the way, the truth and the life. My prayer is for each of my friends and family to know the bounties and blessings that only come through Jesus. Continue to touch hearts and lives and show each of us Your unfailing, unconditional love. Use us to share that love with others who are in darkness today. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Stay in the Light and the Love Always,
