"I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness."
~ John 12:46 (NKJV)
How many forms does darkness take?
Michigan February—when even one extra day stretches the shortest of months into interminable gray and cold—is the least of darkness. True darkness is despair, sin, isolation from God.
I say there is no darkness but ignorance.
~ William Shakespeare
Knowledge is power. However frigid and colorless the landscape, it may be borne in the knowledge that the sun is merely veiled, and an explosion of spring color lies beneath the barren snow.
To know God is to understand His power—and have hope amid the bleakest circumstances. In knowledge of God we recognize sin, so we may repent and ask forgiveness. To discover God's love is to discover the door to fellowship which pierces the deepest loneliness.
Beyond a doubt truth bears the same relation to falsehood as light to darkness.
~ Leonardo da Vinci
Whatever other form darkness might take in your life at any moment, seek to know God and bask in the light of His truth.
Lord, Your love and light and life shatter a million forms of darkness. You are all goodness. Please draw us to seek You, and reveal Yourself to us.
