There is something about the storms of our lives that dim the light that lives within us. What is it that happens to us and our faith when the rainstorms of life clash together? A tornado? A hurricane? What if, instead of allowing these storms (our issues) to destroy the world around us, we destroy them with our faith!
Here are 3 necessary things to remember when your light seems to be dimming because of your storms:
Psalm 18:28 ” You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.”
Sometimes during our storms, we let (often unknowingly) our light dim to the point that we are surrounded by total darkness and depression. Our minds can’t comprehend what we are experiencing nor how to get out of it. The enemy’s whole purpose is to take us to the darkness of his wickedness, so we are rendered weak in his playing grounds. But light is natural in us! God is in us and He WILL shine a light in your darkest time so that you can see the attacks on your life, dodge the enemies bullets, and be guided by God’s love and peace.
John 12:35 “So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going.”
Isaiah 42:16 “And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them.”
Vision is different from sight. Vision comes from God and with the light of the Holy Spirit in us, we can have vision of days to come; a plan that God has for us. So during our treacherous storms, we can know the outcome, because we know the Father, and He has given us a vision for our future.
There might be times, where the light from the sun (Son) is hidden by the clouds of our storms, but our faith is knowing that it does not mean that the sun (Son) is gone forever! That a little rain can’t extinguish its flame! For the Sun (Son) is far more powerful than any storm on this earth, and even in the darkness of night, in the shadows of a hurricane, the sun (Son) still shines providing light, warmth, and the promise of a new day to come.
So the next time your going through a storm of your own, whether it be the loss of someone close, a breakup, loss of a job, or any circumstance that has brought you into darkness, remember that YOU have the LIGHT of CHRIST within yourself, and YOU have the ability to see the outcome and shine your light through the storms, 🙂Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.”
