The world we live in today is filled with darkness. By that I mean what is good is being called evil and what is bad is being called good. Messed up indeed wouldn't you say? Desensitization has occurred to many believers at a rapid pace. You see something or hear something enough you sort of cave in to the "dark side" which is ruled by Satan. When you start to believe the media is more truthful than God's Holy word, the Bible, then there is a problem. When you spend more time on modern culture than getting to know Jesus better that is a warning sign that you need to maybe take some time to renew your spirit by reading the word of God.
How do you dispel darkness? You turn on a light! We believers are to be those lights in a dark world around us. The Bible says in Matthew 5:14-15( NIV) 'You are the light of the world, a town built on a hill that can not be hidden. Neither do people like a lamp and put it under a bowl instead they put it in a stand and it gives light to everyone in the house.' Imagine for a moment you are a huge light bulb. Your light will not shine forth if it is under something. As a believer we are to light the darkness around us not cave into it. Oh sure there may be a struggle on the way but God is with you helping you to shine bright for Him. Just call on Him.
PRAYER: Today and every day let me not hide my light under a basket but let me shine for you in the darkness that surrounds me. A a believer I know it is important I not be like the world but stand out shining the way for others to come to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
