Walking around in the dark is terrifying. I never know what is lurking behind every corner. Fear doesn’t necessarily set in, but complacency does. I get used to groping around and sometimes I just sit down in the dark and make a home.
Revelation is the light that shines in the darkness and reveals what is already there, even the things unseen. Isn’t that what faith is? Believing in the things unseen and walking in the light of the deliverance readily available?
Amos 5:8-9 – He who made the Pleiades and Orion,
who turns midnight into dawn
and darkens day into night,
who calls for the waters of the sea
and pours them out over the face of the land—
the Lord is his name.
9 With a blinding flash he destroys the stronghold
and brings the fortified city to ruin.
Getting comfortable in my dysfunction isn’t an option. God is way to big for that and His Light entirely too bright! When I get new perspective, stop expecting things from mere humans, including myself, then my dreams will live, my fortified city crumbles under the weight of His magnificent stare, and light illuminates the darkness. The revelation is here, deliverance is underway, and HOPE is on the menu!

To further your reading, consider this from:
Proverbs 29:18 (NIV) – Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.
Having God’s word but not taking heed to it leads to a decline in our morality. Are you heeding the instruction of wisdom? Or are you still stuck in the world and it’s ways? Let the Light meet the dark in your life!! Open your eyes and look around! God’s truths are EVERYWHERE!
