TODAY IS LIGHTS ARE OFF
I’m sure most of you know what this means, if so happens you don’t it means you’re in darkness. “They grope in darkness with no light; he makes them stagger like drunkards.” (Job 12:25). Can we all agree that when the LIGHTS ARE OFF we stagger like drunkards? I’ll be applying this phrase to those of us that remain in darkness even after we find the switch to turn the lights. And for those of us that refuse to acknowledge there is a switch to bring about light, regardless of how dark it may appear. “And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3).
This is how I see it, we live in a world with two forces light and dark, and both have a switch that we can flick on or off. I by choice (free will) can decide at any given time whether or not I will flick the switch on to behold the light, or I can just ignore the switch, and remain in darkness. I hope you can read between the lines, and see where I’m going here. Point in case, a pipe in my master bathroom started leaking profusely in the middle of the night, and I was on my way leaving home in exactly two-hours, and I would be gone for several days. I almost lost my footing with complaints and despair, however all while I was mopping up the water I was talking with God, praying and asking him what to do. I kept speaking “there is a lesson here, I may not know what the lesson is, but there is something for me to learn.” Then there was that voice “This is a sign, you shouldn’t go.” “Something bad is going to happen.” Just that quickly as I had flicked the light of hope on, darkness was right there pleading with me with fearful thoughts to flick the lights off.
Admittedly I almost gave in to fear; but that light of hope was shining so bright I just refused to flick it off. Then out of nowhere this scripture vastly came upon me “God did not give me the spirit of fear, but he gave me power, love and sound mind.” (2 Timothy 2:7). Amazedly the more I repeated this scripture the water poured, and that voice was sounding off flick the lights off. Nonetheless I kept repeating it, then out of nowhere the voice of light sounded off “Go downstairs and turn off the main valve.” I was like “God, I don’t know where that valve is?” Nonetheless I obeyed, and went without knowing. I turned three of the pipes off, and returned upstairs, and the water was pouring even the more, and the light was still shining bright asking me to go back down stairs. “God reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the light.” (Job 12:22).
Hold up wait a minute! I know some of you are like why not call a plumber this would be considered flicking on the lights. Absolutely! I’m glad you asked, I have an excellent plumber; however I knew previous that he was working on a commercial job with a crew, and he an early call, so I couldn’t call him. As my story goes, I decided that if I couldn’t find the main valve, it was perfectly fine. I would just mop the water up, and wait for my plumber to be done for the day with his commercial job. And if so happens the trip was still yet, in my plans I would still go. Thank God I found the valve (LIGHTS ARE ON), and turned the lights off, and went on the trip as well. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105). Please join me on tomorrow for LIGHTS ARE OFF Part 2.
