Default From Darkness to Light

Today's Turning Point with David Jeremiah

From Darkness to Light

When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD; and my prayer went up to You, into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:7

Psalm 139:10-12 [ http://iz3.me/0fGW3zeTx1A1 ]

“In the beginning . . . darkness was on the face of the deep.” God’s first act of re-creation was to introduce light, to divide the light from the darkness (Genesis 1:1-4). Christ came as “the light of the world”—to push back the darkness with the light of His life (John 1:4-5; 8:12; 9:5). Even today, small children prefer a light to be left on at night.

Ironically, darkness—especially spiritual or emotional darkness—causes us to reach out for God with hope. We hope He will deliver us from darkness to light. It wasn’t until the rebellious prophet Jonah was entombed in the total darkness of the belly of a great fish that he humbled himself and reached out to God (Jonah 2:1-9). The darkness that surrounded him spelled doom and destruction, so in hope of deliverance he called out to God. And God caused the fish to deliver Jonah from darkness back into the light of life (Jonah 2:10).

As a Christian, you have been delivered from “the power of darkness” into the kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13). If you are in a dark place today, open your eyes of faith and see your deliverance with the light of Christ.

Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light.
