It is required now and in the days ahead. Light in Christ flowing through our lives into the intense darkness all around us. This requires courage and conviction to rise up in Kingdom Reality.
To KNOW that we are in Christ and He has overcome death and the grave.
To BE Christ in the darkness knowing that He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.
To MOVE in Him with intentionality and purpose, not shirking back in fear.
Wherever there is darkness, the smallest bit of light will overcome it. Truth brings light into the darkness. Do we know this deep within us? Or do we adapt to the shifting shadows in the hope that no confrontation or challenge will come our way? The days ahead will challenge our beliefs on many different levels and this will require courage on our part to rise above the chaos.
The simplest things will provoke provocation and anger in those around us.
To stand up in the reality that Jesus Himself said:
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
This is a radical statement, and one that will be contested on every side. Many will proclaim our arrogance in even saying it. Many will say that we are outrageously presumptuous to even think it. Yet, the fact remains……Jesus said it and it is truth.
Living it out. Walking it out. We fear neither death nor shirk from life itself. Life moves us out in courage and boldness. We know that we ARE seated in heavenly places. We ARE hidden in Christ. He has overcome death and the grave. That makes us courageous.
And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3
To know Him – that sets a path in the darkness. No need to fear. No need to worry. There is a light there as we walk in faith. His glory is increasing throughout the earth.
For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you………..Is. 60:1-2
Wherever you are today, rise up in the knowing that He is Lord. Be still and know this to navigate the waters of persecution or mockery you may be facing. Be still and know this to go through times of chaos that challenges your faith, hoping to pull you under or knock you out of the race. Be still and know He is Lord. It’s about to get real folks!
