May 22, 2022: 


From the beginning of creation God has made a distinct difference between light and darkness. God is the Great Emancipator but also the Great Separator. He does not want anyone perish, but scripture tells us that God does not force His will on anyone. There is a perfect will of God for His creation despite if man wants to embrace it or not. It is God’s will for light to overcome darkness and righteousness to overcome wickedness.

God uses circumstances to bring out the best and the worst in His creation, and nobody does it like Him. We are warned of pestilence, earthquakes, wars, and other things that will come upon the earth. The true child of God realizes that this earth is not their home. While we cannot help being affected by what is going on in the earth the Church must be in tune with what God is saying. We can only do this by connecting with His Spirit through prayer. Only then can His light shine into the dark recesses of our hearts and minds, letting us know, like a spiritual compass, where we are in our relationship with God.

While we seek the will of God during times of trouble, we see that trials themselves are shedding light on things that could not be revealed without the shaking brought about by crisis. Has our relationship with others been more important than our relationship with God? What is hidden in our hearts that we cannot see?

The Word of God says, “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad“(Mark 4:22). Jesus was admonishing that no one lights a candle to hide it, but puts it out in the open where it can be seen. It is the will of God to reveal Himself through times of darkness. He is the true light. “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly” (Proverbs 20:27).
