Ephesians 5:15-16 says:
5 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil
This makes me consider what God wants me to do with my time. When the days are evil what are we to do?
Its hard to see the darkness sometimes, that is all around us. Sometimes we are so busy we forget we are to make sure, in that darkness,that we shine bright. After all, if it wasn’t for the darkness, how could we see those stars shining in the sky?
We cannot fear the darkness. There is no faith in fear.
Remember this song?
We are shining. When we are in that darkness, let us rejoice at the opportunity e have to shine His light, to show others the way. After all no matter how dark it may be, that darkness has no power, it cannot overcome light.
Let us be a good steward of our time; let us give our seconds and minutes and hours and days to the Lord. What do we do with these times He has given to us? I know I could be a better steward of my time, for Him. May we use our time, to further His Kingdom, to be the light to those still in the world.
I consider this even more deeply as we prepare to travel, to visit family that does not know the Lord; family that is caught up in the darkness and desperately needs the light that He can shine in their lives. May the Lord bless our family’s time, and that time that so many others will be spending this week, in the darkness. Praying no matter how dark it may be, we will be strong and know that no weapon formed against us will prosper because He has already overcome!
Thank you Jesus for that darkness which allows us to shine your light! Glory! ❤
