Never Sit In Darkness
Monday, October 24, 2016
Isaiah 9:2 says, "The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light." The light is shown on those who dwell in the shadow of death. Dwell in Hebrew is "yeshev," meaning to remain, live, abide or sit down. It's the root word for "yeshiva," a school where religious Jews sit and study, and "moshav," an Israeli agricultural settlement where they live. It's one thing to go through darkness. It's another thing to abide or dwell in dark things. We might pass through, but we're not to sit in it. If you're tempted, don't dwell in it. It's one thing to get angry, but don't remain in it and become bitter. We're not to abide in darkness, defeat, bondage, gloom or carnality. As a child of God, darkness is something you only walk through. Walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Never pitch your tent, take your seat, stay or get comfortable there. Just walk through it. Ke ep your eyes on the Lord's Light because you are one who doesn't sit in darkness, but overcomes it as you walk through to the sunrise.
From Message #559 - The Dayspring
Scripture: 1 John 1:7
Today's Mission - Today resist focusing on the dark things that stop you from walking in His light. Meditate instead on the goodness of God.
