Sometimes things happen that clearly reveal the darkness around us. We recently had such an experience.
With 2 big screen T.V.s missing after our household goods were transported, we contacted the moving company. The report of our concern was not well-received. Throughout 4 phone conversations they hung up on us, denied any responsibility, engaged in extreme efforts to intimidate us, and attacked our character with brutal and accusatory lies...a classic case of good versus evil.
How should we, as Christ-followers, respond to such treatment? We went through the gamut of "what- to-do-now" human responses. However, as we prayed it through, our verse for the year became real...
For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 NLT
We had lit up a very dark place with the truth. It was not received. We knew we were not to enter that darkness. With a prayer for these people we have left it in God’s hands.
Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for His wrath. For it is written: Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay, says the Lord. Romans 12:19
It can be very difficult to let go when we have been wronged. Knowing that our mighty God sees all and will repay is both reassuring and restful.
PRAYER: Thank you for being our forever advocate as we walk through the darkness of this world. Please help us to shine for you even in the darkest places. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
SHINE IN THE DARKNESS!
