Thought of the day (6)
Thought of the day: Light cannot be overtaken by darkness. In fact, the only way darkness can rule and a shadow be cast is if we put something up that blocks the light. Likewise, Jeremiah 29:11 states that God's plan is a plan that is meant to only prosper us. When we doubt that plan or lean on anything other than Him, we are putting walls up that end up putting ourselves through dark and hard times.
Therefore, while trials teach us perseverance and trust, we all too often make ourselves live in dark times by falling into the lie that God has messed up or screwed us over. In reality, that lie is what is messing us up and screwing us over. Jesus came to earth to spread light on the darkness. To testify to the truth. Rest in Him always.
My prayer for you today is that you can take down and overtake the walls in your life that are keeping God's total and complete mercy from reaching you. I pray that you can keep your focus today on the amazing truth that God has a plan for you that is meant to prosper you. Finally, I pray that God will reveal to you that you can break the chains of your temptation, hurt, and past, and that you will use your new found freedom to worship God constantly throughout your day.
"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
"This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
“..giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
