Thought of the day:
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. Reference Colossians 1:13-14 NKJV
God really must Love us to deliver us from the power of darkness. He really must want to see us succeed. He must really want to see that we don’t fall into the snares that pull us from a Holy Righteous Life.
How great it is to have a Love as Powerful as His. We don’t understand It but we desire It everyday. This is probably why we continue to fill our lives with things that do not have any meaning. Many of these things we think are good for us but in fact, pull us away from Him.
Why would we want to return to something that has caused us harm? Could it be that we have a sick desire to continue down a path that leads us to no where and suffering? Shouldn’t we want to continue a life that is full of Sweetness from His Love and Blessing? Yet, we do continue to fall back into our old nature.
We have to continue to put off the old man and seek His Direction. We have to develop daily habits to be in prayer and study. We have to learn to search His Word to grow in a Relationship with Him. In doing these things, we see our anger, anxiety, depression, sick desires, etc. lessen more and more.
Today, seek to have anything that is dark to be removed from your life no matter how innocent it seems.
