{ Day 120 }

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. —John 1:1-5

We best combat spiritual darkness in our lives by receiving more spiritual light! Darkness is driven out of our hearts by the entrance of the light of the revelation of Jesus. Attempting to drive the darkness out of our hearts by ourselves is frustrating and futile, but when the person of Jesus is unveiled to our hearts, that is when His light enters our hearts and the darkness flees. The same is true of natural light in a room. It would be absurd to try to take buckets full of darkness out of a dark room. Rather, we simply turn the light switch on, and darkness is automatically overpowered. This principle applies to our spiritual lives as well. We will wear ourselves out by trying to remove darkness only by focusing on resisting it. Instead, we directly attack the darkness in our lives by focusing on receiving more light.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

God, the darkness in my heart is totally gone when the reflection of Your love abides there. There is no dark recesses in my heart that are not overpowered by the light of Your love.

No darkness in the life of a sincere believer has the
power to overpower the experience of
God's light or revelation.
