Light Will Always Dispel Darkness

Have you ever walked into a dark room and lit a match? That match, although only a tiny flame, will dispel the darkness of the entire room every single time.  This is a law that cannot be altered: Light always overcomes darkness.

As our world is growing darker and darker day by day, we can be confident in knowing that the Light of Christ will always prevail over the darkness of Satan.  Even when things look hopeless, even when fear threatens to overwhelm us, even when God seems far away, His Light will always overcome the darkness.  We have only to believe and to cling to that hope.  Our Lord will never fail us, even though it seems as though His help comes at the last minute.

As I write this word of encouragement, I am keenly aware that I am writing to my brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world.  Some of you are currently in countries that are persecuting Christians.  Some of you have had to run for your lives.  To leave your homes and your homeland. To leave the darkness.

But be certain of this: our Lord will never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6; Hebrews 13:5). We can count on Him to lead us and guide us into the Light.
