July 23

The eye can be deceived. My house has the same color of paint throughout. When we bought it, the paint was in good shape but needed a little touch-up. We didn’t have the code for the exact color, but because of technology, we were able to take a sample and have it color-matched. It was the perfect color, so we thought. We are having new countertops installed, which means that the old must be removed. Behind the four-inch backsplash, the old paint color is uncovered and is next to the original paint. With the kitchen lights being very bright, it reveals the slight difference in the shade. It’s not noticeable where we’ve touched-up, probably because the lighting is not as bright. It’s also noticeable in my garage, where I can see that they didn’t cut in close to the ceiling; I probably notice it because of the bright natural light that pours in when we open the garage door. Could this be a revelation? It absolutely is! The slight variation between the truth and lies, is revealed when light is shined upon it. There is no greater light than Jesus. When he decides to uncover the truth and bring it into his light, the darkness will scatter like roaches. Don’t be afraid of what will come, God is in control, and all we need is the light of Jesus to send the enemy scattering.

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:11-16
