Killing is everywhere. Violence is everywhere. Danger is all around us, but if you are saved, angels are around you and God is with you wherever you go. Why do we as Christians experience some bad, even horrific things? When understanding the Holy Scriptures, you will find that the Wisdom of God tells us that we must go through hard times, we must suffer because Jesus Christ suffered and we share in Him suffering. Does this mean God does not love His people who love Him? No, it means that if we never experienced anything hard, bad or indifferent, then we would never know of His saving ability; His ability to Heal, Deliver, Free, Secure, Carry our Burdens…
It takes the Wisdom of God to understand that which He is doing and has allowed. This topic is controversial and I do not have all the answers, I don’t think anyone does have all the answers, but God Our Father.
Moreover, we as Christians, are Children of The Light. The Light is in Jesus The Christ. Even though darkness is around us, The Light shines within us and around us to illuminate our path through dark places.
Since we are those that carry The Light, we must rest in God’s assurance that He will lead and guide us and protect us.
I can attest to seeing a lot of things happen in my life, things I have not yet to understand and things that have been so dark that I prayed God would see me through them. I am convinced that if God’s light didn’t shine on me, I would be captured by the darkness. Thank you God that although I stumble, struggle, go through rough times that You, Oh God, are and have been my protection. The things I don’t understand do not push me from You but they draw me closer to You so that I can rest in confidence that You do ALL THINGS WELL! There is Light in You therefore there is LIGHT IN ME because I choose to BELIEVE you even when I do not understand. I chose to TRUST and HOPE in You because I feel you, even though I have not seen You.
I know You are the LIGHT and I CHOOSE to Walk Towards You. In Jesus Name, AMEN.
John 1:5-10 (KJV) King James Version
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
