“Hands Off My Dimmer Switch Satan!” ~By Stephen Lewis

Be aware of those times when your light is being dimmed and to stand strong and firm!


Many of you know what a dimmer switch is. It is the controller that allows you to darken or lighten the lights in a room. For those of you who are followers of Jesus Christ, we are supposed to be lights shining bright and bringing hope to those around us. God’s word says in Matthew 5:16:

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

I know sometimes it’s easier said than done when we go through a rough patch or get upset about situations that may arise. However we must stay focused on Jesus Christ and what He has done for us and is still doing. Otherwise if we let our guard down satan can come in and try to mess with our dimmer switch causing us to shine less and be discouraged. Just like a dimming the lights can cause tiredness to set in, the same will happen to our attitudes and the vibes we give off. This will also affect how we impact the lives of others, which is one of Satan’s goals as well.

Once that bad mood sets in, it can be hard at times to get out of it. in fact at times that’s when things get worse because we start to get upset at every little thing that occurs. Some of you are nodding your heads in agreement with me because you, just like me have experienced this before and maybe you are going through this right now.

Paul wrote in James 1:2-4:

2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Once again it is not going to be easy at times to let the light of Jesus Christ shine through you but I want to encourage you to be aware of those times when your light is being dimmed and to stand strong and firm, and continue shinning knowing who you are in Christ and also knowing that others need what you have. Remember to rely on the Holy Spirit for strength and also other followers of Christ who will help give you strength! I pray this message will be a great help to some of you! God Bless You and Yours! Love You all!!
