Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous ~ Psalms 112:4.

Introduction

It is especially crucial that the believers understand the subject of supernatural light, and become skillful in diffusing it, very copiously, in this dark world.

See, the deepest cry of destiny in the heart of humanity has always been for the glory of God. And, inadvertently, the truest sum of all our passionate prayers over the ages is for its full manifestation. Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, “I beseech thee, shew me thy glory” (Exodus 33:18).

Nevertheless, the enemy incessantly attempts to rubbish this glory in the lives of men; even the “upright ones” are not exempted from his assault. They’re occasionally found in uncomfortable conditions: in the darkness of affliction, disillusioned and without spiritual joy.

However, whenever they engage the power of light, the activities of the “enemies” are summarily neutralized, and suddenly they receive deliverance to enjoy God’s immense goodness again.

For the avoidance of doubt, these “enemies” include whosoever instigates or rejoices over the afflictions of God’s people, whether devils or evil men. But, our enemies can never have lasting joy because the stumbling of the godly and triumph of the ungodly are always momentary (Micah 7:8).

Albeit, it’s quite compelling that we become exact in the holy art of radiating the glory of God, trading daily in His light. Whenever we radiate the glorious light of God, our enemies pine away in shame (Psalm 112:10).

The Power of Divine Light

Demonic activities are like invisible obstacles that stand in the way of progress. They must be invaded, circumvented, ripped through or burnt away before the fulfillment of destiny can manifest. Albeit, the shadows of stagnation can only be terminated by the light of God’s grace and glory.

The light of God is so strong, intense and penetrating in any realm to the extent that it can cut through any barrier, just like it did when the finger of God engraved the Ten Commandments on tablets of stone.

The glorious light of God eliminates darkness. It illuminates and reveals. It also terminates obscurity. Hence, with divine illumination, calamities are suddenly succeeded by supernatural prosperity.

Again, this light gives direction, emits energy, radiates glory, and provokes luxuriant growth and development. Thus, it always excites the atmosphere, making it conducive for joyful celebrations.

The divine light is capable of destroying even the gates of hell, and no barrier can stand against him who walks in it. Nevertheless, we must cooperate with God, managing our priorities well enough to disallow satanic barriers on our walkways.

It is not sufficient just to have light; we must consistently walk in its luminance. Our entire life’s conduct should demonstrate that we’re the children of light, and our character should be a constant exemplification of its power and truth.

Jesus: Our Shinning Light in this Dark World

Jesus Christ is the Original Light (John 1:1-5; John 8:12). He came that we might no longer walk in darkness (John 12:46). When we walk with Him, darkness cannot stall us. He is the vital Mediator between God and man (1Timothy 2:5).

Moses was in the atmosphere of God’s presence on Mount Sinai, and he requested to see God’s face (Exodus 33:18-20). But, God responded, "Thou canst not see my face … and live”. This is because the raw light of God is most insufferable, and so consuming to behold (Deuteronomy 9:3; Hebrews 12:29).

Happily, He tempered this light in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6). Therefore, it is only through Jesus that humanity can ever access and truly enjoy God’s light, glory and power today.

Diffusing the Gospel Light for a Better World

Darkness is not just the opposite of light; in reality, it is the absence of light, creating a dense evil atmosphere, breeding diseases, arresting development and occasioning death.

Happily, it is God’s primordial passion to completely illuminate the world with the light of His glory, just as the waters cover the sea (Numbers 14:21; Habakkuk 2:14). Amazingly, God equally chose us as His designated instruments for this heavenly task.

As we walk in the light of Christ, we become His light to illuminate the minds of men, just as He uses the sun to light up the planet earth (1Peter 2:9).

We must shine for others to see, and go forth to eliminate the dark spaces of satanic operations on earth (Matthew 5:14-16; 2 Peter 1:19).

I honestly believe it was in this context that the Lord gave us the following injunctions: “I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth” (Acts 13:47). See also Ephesians 5:8.

Men and brethren, it is time to diffuse the light of the gospel round about us. Darkness does not have the audacity to prevent your light from shining, unless you allow it!

Evil is like a dark shadow. It has no real substance of its own; it’s simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to stamp on it, or even by raining hot curses upon it. If the shadow must disappear, you must shine light on it.

Meanwhile, the revelation of God’s Word is the most formidable secret of light in the realm of the spirit. When we speak God’s Word, the atmosphere changes, and the enemies are defeated. With one Word from God, darkness flees and those in bondages are set free.

Always remember: man is empowered to enjoy the light of God’s glory and all the goodness it brings only by the Spirit of God, when he has turned to the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:7-18). Once there is the holy glow of the Spirit in the soul, there will be beauty in the person.

Friends, walking with Jesus Christ is walking in victory. Welcome Him into your soul, and let’s together beam His light round the globe.

Never again must you allow any silly snag to hinder you from this honorable vocation. Never again must you permit any barrier of the senses to shut you out of this gracious discourse of destiny.

“Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light”  (Isaiah 60:20). You won’t miss it, in Jesus name. Amen. Happy Sunday!
