Last night I received some troubling news. When I first heard it my blood pressure went up and my mind goes to the worst places. But even as I type this morning, I am aware that when my mind goes to the worst place, the dark place, love is there. I am reminded of the movie “Furious Love” and how it documents the power of love in the deepest and darkest places of the earth. I believe that the deepest and darkest places in the earth are simply a reflection of how dark and evil the human heart can be. If love is penetrating the dark cultures of the earth, it is for sure penetrating the dark places of the human spirit and bringing the light of life. I declare over myself, my family and this situation that Jesus is the Light of the world and those who follow him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of the life of men. Think about that....? We will never walk in darkness. Our emotions do not have to be governed by darkness. Our thoughts do not have to be governed by darkness. I can be governed by the light of God’s kingdom which only knows the forward movement of righteousness and justice. Ephesians 3:20-21 reminds us that God is a God of abundance and it should exist in our thinking and in our speaking. So today, as we face situations that are dark and void of life, let your speaking and your thinking be saturated with His abundance. Walk in the light as He is in the light and release the love of the Father through who God created you to be. Keep your hopes up today friend!
