Light in the darkness

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word darkness on the walls of his cell. ~C.S. Lewis

Isaiah 60:19-20
19 “The sun shall no longer be your light by day,
   Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you;
   But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light,
   And your God your glory
20 Your sun shall no longer go down,
   Nor shall your moon withdraw itself;
   For the LORD will be your everlasting light,
   And the days of your mourning shall be ended.

John 1:4-5
4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John 8:12
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

1 John 1:5
5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

[Note: emphasis mine.]

You've heard the expression: "You can run but you can not hide"? As God word says: I am the light of the world; God is light and in Him is no darkness at all; He will be your everlasting light.

God sees everything. God's glory reigns. HE is the Almighty God. No wiles of the devil can change that. Even if you refuse God, he has given you opportunity to redeem yourself through the salvation of Christ. HE is the light in the darkness.

Will you allow God's glory to shine in you?
