We are in the time when the nights are longer in the physical world, darkness is getting greater. It is not only the physical world where we face difficulties, but in the souls of people as well. Fear and uncertainty keep attacking more aggressively. Fear from the future: what else can come, what is waiting on us.
Thick clouds cover our nations, our continent, even the whole world.
Yet, into this dark, hopeless, depressed time full of fear, comes the encouraging Word of God as a ball of fire which brings light to everything. It sound like this in the Old Testament from the book of Isaiah, chapter 9 verses 1-2:
“Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress… The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.”
God’s message in the most difficult times is: There is solution! The light will shine up!
Then on Christmas Eve, in the middle of the night, a multitude of angels appeared in great light in front of the shepherds to proclaim: the Redeemer, the Savior, the Deliverer, the Messiah, Jesus Christ was born.
God’s response to the darkness is Jesus Christ!
God’s response to the darkness in your life is Jesus Christ!
God’s response to all your questions and problems is Jesus Christ!
When Jesus was at the peak of his earthly ministry, He was crucified for our sins. And there, at that time, in the middle of the day there became darkness on the land. There, at that time Jesus took all the darkness upon himself.
Yet, His resurrection has been shining light on our lives ever since.
You are important to God! God loves you! God will not leave you alone with your problems!
God’s response for you is Jesus Christ!
Call upon Him! Get to see Him! Receive Him!
This way you will have Life, this way you can become victorious over everything.
