A Light in the Dark

There is light and there's darkness.  And there's sight and there's vision. The invisible can become visible.  These are Todd Parsons' thoughts for us, today.

Without the righteousness of God and without the knowledge of God, I understand nothing of God and I sit in darkness to that which is unseen.  So, today, I can let the Life of Christ be my light in this darkness. He is the righteousness of God and through Him I have the knowledge of who God is towards me, i.e., His thoughts expressed to give me light to see that which is unseen in this world.  I am enabled by the Lord to see Him who is invisible, by the measure of my reliance on Him who is invisible.

Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me, (Mic 7:8)

So we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, (2 Peter 1:19, NKJV)

SIMON PETER, a servant and apostle (special messenger) of Jesus Christ, to those who have received (obtained an equal privilege of) like precious faith with ourselves in and through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: May grace (God's favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.  For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue).  By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature, (2 Peter 1:1-4, AMP)

     Of So Great Love, we are, tjp
