“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness.” – Gen 1:3,4
The beauty of the morning sunrise that brings peace and assurance, the heat of the summer sun, the romance of an evening sunset: Light. With a single word the Almighty spoke this radiant sight into existence.
Have you ever paused and looked over a city to think about the possibility of there being no such thing as light? How dark and lost would our world be if there was literally no source of light; no sun, fire, artificial light, or moon and stars. Imagine the state of depression we would sink to as a species without the presence of any light.
We would work, relate, travel and live as completely blind people. The sight of admiring a new born, the notice of the fall colours, the view of the mountains, the watch of whales, the gaze at nature, all would be joy lost in every single human being.
God created light and called it good. He also separated it from darkness, making a clear distinction we may think obvious, yet in spiritual terms we oft allow this separateness to become contaminated.
Pray for those lost in darkness. Pray for yourself that you would not intentionally, or unintentionally attempt to mix darkness with Light.
