00629 - This Present Darkness

Undeniably, as Christians, we navigate a landscape of darkness and adversity. This present age is fraught with challenges, from personal trials to global crises, casting long shadows over our daily lives. We are reminded in Ephesians 6:12 (NKJV), "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age." 

Such difficulties beckon us to strengthen our spiritual resolve, delve deeper into the Word, and fortify our connection with God. Remember, darkness is an absence of light. Light will always pierce the darkness if we are persistent enough. 

As we deepen our trust in God, we become instruments of His peace, reflecting His light into the darkest corners. Hold fast to the promise that He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world, and move forward with courage and conviction in our hearts.


Darkness around you only succeeds when your light is absent.


Lord, help me shine brightly through the darkness around me.

Action Point

Don’t be afraid of the darkness; focus on what you can do to build God’s Kingdom.
