“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”

{1 John 1:5 NKJV}

Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m just in a dark place, right now.” ?

We all go through times when life is less than perfect. But, during those times, we cannot let the world overwhelm us. As Christians, we know the ONE who has overcome the world.

“”These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.””

{John 16:33 NKJV}

During the past few months, I have come to realize (or re-realize…is that a word?) That when things get tough…when life throws its worst at you…when you don’t listen to what GOD is telling you to do…those are NOT the times to go to that dark place…that place where GOD does not exist…that place where communication with HIM is halted, fellowship is severed, where prayer is made out of desperation instead of genuine love for the FATHER.

“If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”

{1 John 1:6 NKJV}

As Christians, we should not…can not say that we are in a dark place. There should not be a “dark place” for us if we have CHRIST. There is no darkness in a life lived for GOD.

Luke 1 78-79

 

Gaining strength through our fellowship… 

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”

{1 John 1:3 KJV}
