LIGHT DRIVES OUT DARKNESS
*WISDOM FOR TODAY*
*LIGHT DRIVES OUT DARKNESS.*
Acts 26:18 ,*To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
John 8:12 *Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
There is nothing more blind than being unable to see the Light through God's eyes.
Light drives out darkness. Satan is darkness which means an "inability to see."
The devil knows the importance of both the physical and spiritual eyes.
He wants the tale of people to be:"seeing they saw but could not perceive".
The Bible records he is behind the spirit of infirmities and it attributes some afflictions to him, Luke 13:12,16.
In addition to physical infirmities, Satan also makes his victims blind spiritually.
2 Cor 4:4 says *ln whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.*
The story of Nicodemus in John 3, tells us that one may be an eminent teacher, professor, sharp thinker and yet he may be blinded concerning spiritual truths. How often is it true that those whom we think should know, actually know nothing. Those whom we think know nothing, do know something.
Knowledge in the Spirit has little or nothing to do with academic wisdom or understanding 1 Cor 1:27.
Matt 11:25 says, *“You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes!*, Matt 11: 25.
A major cause of spiritual blindness is when one fails to believe. The less we believe the more hardened we become, leading to drifting away from the truth. This makes one, more vulnerable to falling into total darkness spiritually.
When you fail to believe the truth, you will believe a lie.
Those who believe the truth shall see the light and be delivered by it.
Isaiah 1:8 *The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.*
Satan, the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who do not believe.
Those who fail to believe Christ open themselves to Satan.
*Call to Word action.*
2 Cor 4:6 *For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Walk out of darkness so that you may see the light.
Lord help me to see the Light in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
