I usually get up before the sun comes up. I’m not one to turn on all the lights, I like to stay a little sleepy, but there are hazards to be aware of fumbling through the darkness. Just this morning, I took my phone and iPad off their chargers and moved them to the other counter, but because it was dark, I missed the counter entirely, and they both fell to the floor! Thankfully, neither was damaged. If you have kids, you know that it’s unsafe to wander around in the dark; stepping on one tiny Lego block could send your coffee flying!
Even though I like the darkness in the mornings, I’m not truly in the dark used to describe evil in the Bible, but it uses it as a comparison; it makes perfect sense when you think about the many dangerous things that happen when it’s dark. Though I like sitting in physical darkness, because of Jesus, I am filled with light. When you feel you have entered an evil place, remember the light shining within you. Evil shudders when you come near.
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14
