In a dark room


A few months ago, I had to purchase a new flat-iron. To save money, I went to the nearest T.J. Maxx and caught a sale. Amen somebody?! As I plugged it in, I noticed the LED displaying the temperature on the front, but didn't pay it much attention. However at night, the light that wasn't that bright during the day, shone brightly through my bathroom and room. How could the same light that was barely seen in the day, now become a personalized night light?

You see, there's a separating effect between the light and the darkness. Without a doubt, they are completely distinguishable from one another. But something about their presence, one next to the other, causes the other to be more apparent. Without the darkness, I would have never seen how bright that LED light could shine.

Some of you are praying to be delivered out of some dark and tough situations. However, can I propose to you that quite possibly the Lord has placed you there for one purpose? To find the light that He has already placed within you and shine brightly? That instead of God saying "Let there be light" in your situation, He placed you there, as a fulfillment of that scripture?

Simply put, many of you wouldn't have known the light that already existed within you without going through the dark. Truth be told, it was the darkest moments of your life that you've shone the brightest. Whomever, and wherever you are now, don't let the dark stop you. Instead, make a decision to always shine bright...

Scripture(s) Meditation:

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness."

Genesis 1:1-4 New Living Translation
