The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John 1:5
The world around you may seem very dark to believers right now. If all you do is saturate yourself with the changing cultural tide nightly news or the desensitization happening on TV, movies, schools, and cartoons you could get in a real tizzy.
Relax. God has this. Your job is to keep your light shining for the kingdom and get it back to a roaring flame if it is only an ember. Turn off negative news feeds, tv shows and the like that cast doubt as to whether God is in charge. Schedule daily Bible reading and quiet time. Also don’t speak evil of enemies(see Proverbs 24:17) but pray for them as they are under a cloud of satanic deception and may not even want to acknowledge it due to endearment to a life long political party that has them tricked and held captive.
Today your job is to light the world around you. In your family, your workplace, your church, your recreation endeavors, your grocery shopping, and your night at the restaurant or movies. Don’t be ‘holier than thou’ or self righteous but pray that God will use you to light up the paths around you. Get rid of negativity and look up!
PRAYER: I know it is easy to let Satan make me feel all hope is lost and my beloved nation is going down the tubes but IT IS NOT so help me squish negative thinking and mediate only good from your word. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
