| About me
The early morning sun shines brightly through the bathroom window.
It seems to grow brighter and brighter during those few minutes I watch it while brushing my teeth.
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it" (John 1:5).
Just think about this.
It's dark during the night because there is no sun to give light.
But when the sun rises in the morning, its light gets rid of the darkness.
It only gets dark again when the sun sets at night. Darkness cannot suddenly overcome the sun during the day and make it dark again.
God is light and there is no darkness in Him at all (1 John 1:5).
He is the light that overcomes the darkness. His light will always overcome the darkness.
But the darkness will never be able to overcome His light.
With His light shining in our lives darkness has no chance.
As long as we cling to His light and walk in His light, we will not be overcome by darkness.
We will not even stumble and fall, because we will see the way we are to go and where there are obstacles in our way, so we will be able to avoid them.
Do you have a place of darkness in your life today?
Maybe it is some sin you struggle to overcome.
Maybe it is a situation you cannot see a solution to.
Maybe it is a relationship gone wrong and you just cannot seem to forgive.
Whatever the darkness, come to the Light.
Allow the Lord to shine His light on that darkness.
Allow His light to overcome the darkness, because "light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."
