I have heard from the Lord in this.
There is no substitute for light.
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life." John 8:12
It is not enough to love Jesus. It's not enough to read His Word. It's not about being with other light bearers. That is a given. All those things.
What is needed is to find light and let it come into your darkness. We know this even in our common culture. "a light went on" to speak of an idea. "Illuminate me" to speak of someone who is going to explain something to you. People talk of revelation as "greater Light".
This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. 1 John 1:5
When a person has received darkness, they furrow their brow, a dark look comes over their face. They have seen a dark thing.
So, Prophet, I feel dark. I see only darkness in my situation. Thinks in the world look pretty dark. The financial situation seems to have no light at the end of the tunnel. It seems like there is only a black dark hole into which I am sinking.
It only takes a little light to back off the darkness. IF you are feeling like things are hopeless, bad, dark, not getting better...I have a word for you, the light of the world, the one in whom there is no darkness comes to bring new light into your life. YOU don't have to push back the darkness. You don't have to beg. You only need to come to the realization that he is the source of light and if you will allow him to shine into and around your life you can find the way out of the dark place.
Some of that comes by your calling in, calling down, calling up. The confession of your mouth will darken or release HIS light into your life. Do YOU think for a second that Father, the Creator of all who said, "let there be LIGHT" ever intended for you to live in that place? NO, A thousand times no.
If you feel helpless, alone and in the dark, other people can't help. They can bring comfort, but they can't bring light. TV won't help.
You are right now creating by your beliefs, attitudes, confessions, conversation and thoughts the mountaintop you are living on or the hole you have dug. To get out of that hole, STOP DIGGING.
It took a while to get there, It's going to take a while to get out. You CAN get out... if you will look up and start taking steps with your mind, soul and Spirit.
It's not simplistic. You tried before. You have looked for another way. There is NO OTHER WAY. He is going to provide the light on your path enough for you to walk the next step. That path is called the way of peace. Find it. Walk on it.
I can't counsel your way onto or over that path. You must find it. YET, it's there and it is exactly what you will need to make it in the days and years ahead. Times all around will get dark, yet you can be the light of the world...as HE shines in and thru you.
"If only I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and find rest. Psalm 55:61
Find peace, Find light, Find rest
FLY LIKE AN EAGLE...on doves wings
