Mt 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is sset on an hill cannot be hid.
:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick: and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify you Father which is in heaven.
Jn 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness: and the darkness comprehended it not.
Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of the light.
:11 and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Light in the word usually refers to Jesus, and darkness usually refers to satan or evil.
Thnink for a moment about walking into a pitch black room. All you have to do to dispel the darkness, is to flip a light switch. Where there is light, darkness has to flee. Light doesn't have to fight, it just has to be.
Jesus (the Light) has already won what ever battle you are fighting right now. No matter how bad that battle seems. That darkness HAS to flee. But in His timing not ours. That is the hard part isn't it? We are a microwave mentalilty type of people. We want everything fixed right now. God's timing isn't ours. It is His. The more we remember that, the easier it will be for us when we are praying through a battle. That is our job when we are going through things. To pray. And when we know our family, friends, neighbors, who ever God puts in our path are battling something, we should be praying for them also.
Light, what a great invention!
