LIGHT & DARKNESS
I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. —Psalm 139:11-12
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. —Genesis 1:3-5
As I write this it is dark out. I cannot see beyond my window. The trees are there, but I cannot see them. Earlier this morning the moon was reflecting the sun’s light and it was bright out, but now clouds must have moved in. I do not see the moonlight.
We grope around in darkness, not being able to see. Years ago before modern technology man became quiet when darkness came upon the land each night. Today cities hustle and bustle through much of the night because of luminary technology.
But darkness and light are no different for God. This is a hard concept for us to fathom as we are so dependent on light to be able to see. This is not true of God. He sees all everywhere at all times. This is hard for us to grasp. “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13).
Those who think they are not being seen under the cover of darkness are being seen. There is no escaping the notice of Him who sees all things at all times everywhere. Talk about accountability. He knows all things about you and me. Nothing is hidden from Him… nothing! So let us be right before Him who sees whether we are in the light or darkness. He knows…
Dear Father, may I be a light-liver and seek not to hide anything in the darkness. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90JqMBtKYAs
