Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:4-5
“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this day should overtake you as a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness.”
The darkness cannot overtake us! We are children of the light and children of the day! This truth gives us such hope and encouragement. When we feel the darkness closing in, we can preach the gospel to ourselves and remind ourselves that we are no longer living in darkness, we are children of the light! We are not of the night or of the darkness.
What words of truth do you need to remind yourself of today? You are loved. You are forgiven. You are a child of the Most High God. You are not forsaken. In Christ and because of His blood you are made righteous. We are not children of the dark, we are children of the day and children of the light!
Lord, thank You that because of You we are no longer living in darkness. Sometimes, though, I need the reminders that the darkness will not overtake me. Thank You, Lord, that I am a child of the light and a child of the day. May I speak those words of life to my children and to those around me still walking in darkness.
