All around us is evidence of growing darkness. Darkness is not just sin and wickedness. Darkness also means a lack of sight. A lack of clarity. It’s confusion. Disorientation. It’s great deception. It’s a place and time of fear. It’s yelling to be heard because you can’t tell if anyone is listening. It’s a decline of trust, a decline of truth. It’s all of these things.
And the Bible promises it will spread and cover the earth and its people.
See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Isaiah 60:2
In today’s podcast devotional JB Shreve looks at the rising darkness and encourages believers to find and to be light in the midst of the darkness. Be careful to not assume we are right or even that our posture is darkness proof. Darkness is a deceptive and subtle thing that sucks people in.
Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
