IN WHOM THE GOD OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST, WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM
(2 Corinthians 4:4).
The father-of-lies is keeping many things hidden from you: God’s Truth, God’s Righteousness, and God’s Redemption. It is the father-of-lies’ goal to keep you in darkness—to keep you meditating on his negative, destructive beliefs of abandonment, shame, rejection, and condemnation—so you would not share in the Kingdom of Light. He hides everything God has to offer you, lest the Light of the glorious Gospel of Christ should shine on you this Christmas season.
GIVING THANKS TO THE FATHER, WHO HAS QUALIFIED YOU TO SHARE IN THE INHERITANCE OF THE SAINTS IN THE KINGDOM OF LIGHT. FOR HE HAS RESCUED US FROM THE DOMINION OF DARKNESS AND BROUGHT US INTO THE KINGDOM OF THE SON HE LOVES
(Colossians 1:12-13 NLT).
The Perfect Father sent the Light of His Son to shine in your heart during this season of Glory; therefore, you do not have to live in darkness anymore. He has qualified you to share in the Kingdom of Light.
LIVING IN THE LIGHT, AS GOD IS IN THE LIGHT
(1 John 1:7).
Do you want to be rescued from the darkness that has been surrounding you? Then, it is your responsibility to stop having fellowship with the darkness. The darkness will not leave as long as you nurture the father-of-lies’ negative, destructive beliefs of abandonment, shame, rejection, and condemnation in your heart. But, if you expose these beliefs to the Light, you will see what the father-of-lies does not want you to see: God’s Truth, God’s Righteousness, and God’s Redemption.
How often do you have fellowship with the darkness—meditating on the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies?
Come and live in the Light, as God is in the Light. Come and share in the inheritance of the saints. Then, you will be rescued from the dominion of darkness.
PRAYER: Thank you Father that You have qualified me to share in the Kingdom of Light—the Kingdom of Your Son. Remind me, every day, that I do not have to live according to the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies, for You have rescued me from the dominion of darkness.
