Spiritual darkness is a tragedy this day and age and it is all around us. No matter who we meet or where we go it is there in some form or another. It comes to us in thoughts, it comes to us by others hurting us, sometimes we bring it about ourselves by slipping out of God's presence so what is the remedy? By now you can probably answer that question but I have some verses that will help you a lot.
2 Peter 1:3 "According as His divine power hath given unto us 'All Things' that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue."
'All Things' that pertain to life and godliness. That means a lot, think about it, our whole life with godliness on top of it. Is there any darkness in glory and virtue, I think not. We need to keep the darkness away but we can't do it on our own..
Philippians 4::13 "I can do 'All Things' through Christ which strengthens me." Keep in mind who it is that gives us the strength to do 'All Things'
Romans 8:32 "He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us 'All Things'." His sacrifice in our behalf was given so that we could be the participant in the 'All Things' that pertain to life and godliness.
Mark 9:23 "Jesus said unto him, 'If thou canst believe, 'All Things' are possible to him that believeth."
Belief is a hard thing to conjure up but we don't even have to do that but we do have to do something and it is found in Romans 10:17 "So faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God." So our belief comes by reading the word of God or listening to it this day and age on your ipod. The more time we spend in the word, the more our belief in God will grow. And the darkness will disappear. You could say that the depression will disappear.
Mark 10:27 last part "For with God 'All Things' are possible."
With God we can stay in His presence and we can spend time in His word and build ourselves up in our most holy faith and with God 'All Things' are possible. Drive the darkness in your life away with God's word and by staying in His presence this day, we only have one day at a time to live and that makes it a lot more simple than trying to live our life time on our own. "For without faith it is impossible to please Him."
So stay in His presence and keep in His word each day and the darkness that haunts you will flee away. I really believe that because I have experienced it. Grandma Joan
PS. I really needed this one today, and it did help tremendously and I hope it will help you as much as it has helped me. God bless you.
