The Light Dawns?

January 1, 2010

At home group the other night, we discussed being in darkness and coming into light. Something very interesting was shared. If you stay in a totally dark place for awhile, your eyes will adjust to the darkness. Once your eyes are accustomed to the darkness, when light comes it will blind you. Even if it is a tiny little candle, it will be so bright to your eyes that you won’t be able to see anything.

Gradually, your eyes will adjust again and you will start being able to make out the things around you. If you wait long enough, even if there is only a little bit of light, you will eventually be able to see fairly well and even make out details in a painting across the room.

I was reminded of the difference between darkness and light. Darkness does not really exist. It is nothing. It is the absence of light. As soon as light appears…no matter how dim…darkness starts to be dispelled. The only thing left are shadows.

Before we recognize Yeshua as Messiah, we are in total darkness. We are groping our way about in this world trying to figure out how to really do life. Nothing truly satisfies us…not even “success”.

When we finally recognize who Yeshua really is…the Light of the world…and accept Him…we are blinded. It is all we can do to just bask in His light and rejoice that we are no longer in complete darkness. After awhile, we become adjusted to the light and are able to see a whole lot more. We see things like…what G-d is really like and how different from Him we truly are. Things like…how He wants us to live (which is for our benefit) and how far from those ways we actually live. We start to become aware of the details of His incredible love for us and are better able to truly enjoy His love.

From the darkness to the light. From the absence of Yahweh in our lives…to the fullness of His Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit in our lives. From the darkness of trying to figure out how to do life on our own…to living in the Light that is Yeshua/Jesus who has already shown us how to do life…and Who also has made it POSSIBLE for us to do life!

From darkness to…LIGHT!

Where are you today? Are you still in darkness? Are you still trying to figure out how to find fulfillment and happiness? Are you looking for true joy? You won’t find it in money. Or position. Or fame. Or any of the other things this world tries to tell you that you can find it in. You won’t even find it in spirituality…unless that spirituality comes from your Creator. Nothing else will satisfy. No one else will lift the darkness in your heart.

I encourage you today…seek Him. Seek the Creator. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you in a very real way. He has already revealed Himself through His Son Yeshua who came and showed us what our heavenly Abba/Father is really like. Ask Him to make Himself real to you. Recognize that there are things within you that hinder you from coming to Him. It is called “sin”. However, Yeshua took care of that sin problem…if you will just accept it and ask Him to forgive you and help you.

Our Creator loves His creation. He wants to be one with us. Someday, those who seek Him and accept Him will be with Him forever…basking in the Light of His Love. Someday, the darkness of this world will be totally dispelled by the Light. If you rebel against G-d…if you reject the Light…there is only total darkness awaiting you. There is aloneness, darkness and torment in fire. But there is no need for anyone to go there…NONE!!

Yeshua made a way for you. Please accept it!! Please let His Light dawn in your heart. When all is said and done…I really WANT to see you there!
